Akira Toriyama launched a new comic this week, and even better than that fact in and of itself, it is available simultaneously in English! Jaco the Galactic Patrolman officially hit Japanese shelves via Weekly Shōnen Jump a couple days early on Saturday (courtesy of today being “Marine Day” pushing WJ out ahead of its normal Monday release), but it also hits digital shelves today from Viz. In fact, the first chapter is available for free via their latest starter pack, so there are no excuses!
What does this have to do with Dragon Ball, though, and why are we covering it on the podcast?
Various hints have been dropped that Jaco may have something to do with our favorite series. This week on our show, we dive into these hints and look for hidden connections of our own.
