The manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is written and illustrated by Hirohiko Araki. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1987 to 2002, before being transferred to the monthly seinen magazine Ultra Jump in 2004. The series can be broken into eight distinct parts, each following a different descendant of the original's protagonist on different quests. The current story arc, JoJolion, started in 2011.
The chapters are collected and published into tankōbon volumes by Shueisha, with the first released on August 10, 1987. During Part 5, which takes place in Italy, the series' title was written in Italian as Le Bizzarre Avventure di GioGio. After volume 63, each Parts' tankōbon have started the number count back at one.
The series was licensed for an English-language release in North America by Viz Media. However, instead of starting with volume one, they chose to only release Part 3, which is the most well-known. The first volume was released on November 8, 2005, with the first twelve volumes summarized in an eight-page summary written and drawn by Araki himself, and the last on December 7, 2010. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has also seen domestic releases in Italy by Star Comics, in France by J'ai Lu and Tonkam, Taiwan by Da Ran Culture Enterprise and Tong Li Publishing, and in Malaysia by Comics House.

“Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions? Do they feel comfortable adapting to change? Are they easily discouraged if they cannot arrive at a solution to a problem? The answers to those questions will give you a better appraisal of their education than any list of courses, grades, or test scores.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“And let a scholar all earths volumes carry,
He will be but a walking dictionary:
A mere articulate clock.”

If with too credent ear you list his songs,
Or lose your heart, or your chaste treasure open
To his unmastered importunity.”
