Shueisha will release an artbook collection box set for Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure> manga on September 19. The "Jojoveller" box set will include an artbook, two supplementary books, and two Blu-ray Discs. The 208-page, full color artbook will contain a new cover image drawn specifically for the collection, and will also feature images from the 2012 exhibition in Tokyo, as well as commentary from Araki. The supplementary books will include a "Stand Book" encyclopedia on all the Stands featured in the franchise, and a "History Book" that will also feature a previously-untold story.

The collection, which is being released as a part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for the manga, will be made to order, and pre-orders will be open through May 7. The collection will cost 20,000 yen (about US$211). Another collection, without the Blu-ray Discs, will ship in spring 2014 for 8,500 yen (about US$90).

The official YouTube channel for the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise is also currently streaming promotional videos for the upcoming collection. The first video shows a timeline of the franchise, and the other two videos highlight the content on the two Blu-ray Discs. The first disc will include a video of the "Jojo Exhibition 2012" in Tokyo, and the second disc will include a making-of feature, which follows Araki closely for three days while he works.
