Ah, I'm so excited that JoJo's Part 3 JoJonium is finally being released, as well as One Piece box set 3!

Nice pickup with Tomie! Been wanting to check that out for awhile. Also happy about more JoJo,though I hope they shortened the release schedule with Stardust considering the length of it.

Wouldn't it make more sense to skip Stardust and go to Diamond?

Cain: The niche, hardcore fans would be the only possible audience for it, here. Hence why it was sub-only.

Not for this release. Part 3 is part of the JoJonium special deluxe re-releases in Japan/partial-omnibus (13-14 chapters a volume). Comes with some extra content like character redesigns, new cover illustrations, color pages, notes from Araki, and hardcover format (for the US releases).

As of now, the first three parts are in JoJonium format.

IMO, I'd rather wait for Japan to release more JoJonium volumes from part 4 and onwards (if they decide to do it) so that way I can have a consistent collection.

Futago: My guess is Viz wants to test the waters for the demand for a longer Jojo arc by doing this.

Neat! I've read the Dark Horse releases ages ago, it's nice and creepy! But I'll probably pick this up too, I anticipate this release to be better. I hope they get his general "Horror Collection" series, there's lots of goodness I'd love to see there! Dark Horse attempted it (starting with Tomie), but yeah, it never went far enough. And I will never reject a Junji Ito horror collection of any sort from my shelves!

Nah, I don't think that's the case. With Part 2 JoJonium ending in August, as well as the release schedule being every three months, it's a perfect opportunity to go straight into Part 3.
