“Jaco the Galactic Patrolman” Receiving “Super Elite” Manga Edition
Published by 17 February 2014, 10:39 AM EST

As announced in this week’s upcoming April 2014 issue of V-Jump (officially hitting store shelves 21 February 2014), the collected print edition of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman (coming out in Japan 04 April 2014) will now come in two editions: a regular version (¥440 / ¥475 with tax) and a “Super Elite” version with special packaging (¥907 / ¥980 with tax). There is no word yet what specifically this “Super Elite” version will include over the regular edition.

The collected release of the manga is set to include some bonus material such as the reveal of Goku’s mother, Gine.

Jaco the Galactic Patrolman was an 11-chapter manga series by Akira Toriyama that ran from the 2013 #33-44 issues of Weekly Shōnen Jump in Japan, and also saw a simultaneous digital release in English by Viz. Originally teased by Shueisha as the “shocking revival of Dragon Ball!!”, by the series’ completion it became clear that it was indeed a true prequel to Dragon Ball.

Originally advertised at the time of the series’ conclusion to be released in January this year, the collected release was pushed back to April for unspecified reasons, most likely to tie in with the Dragon Ball franchise’s 30th anniversary.
