Akira Toriyama, famed creator of Dragon Ball, began work on a new comic two years ago, his first comic work for thirteen years. Published in Japan, Jaco The Galactic Patrolman was serialised in the US in the digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from Viz Media.
Well, in January, Viz will publish the series in print.
Akira Toriyama, manga legend and creator of Dragon Ball Z, is back with the quirky comedy Jaco the Galactic Patrolman! Retired scientist Omori lives alone on a deserted island while continuing his research into time-travel. His quiet life is interrupted when galactic patrolman Jaco crash-lands and decided to move in with him. Can Jaco get along with the old man long enough to save the earth from a dangerous threat? Includes a special bonus chapter introducing Dragon Ball Z hero Goku's parents!
And there are plenty more Dragon Ball references to be find for those who pay attention… here's how it looks.
