Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Volume 12
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Volume 12 by Hirohiko Araki
Book DescriptionAround the world, evil spirits are awakening: Stands, monstrous invisible creatures which give their bearers incredible powers. To save his mother s life, 17-year-old Jotaro Kujo must travel to Cairo, Egypt, where a hundred-year-old vampire waits to destroy his bloodline once and for all R to L (Japanese Style). The Claws of Horus The magic book of Mondatta has shown the future: "Jotaro with a bullet through his head!" Can he escape his fate?! As the heroes race against time to find Dio's secret lair, Iggi, the dog, is the first to discover the location. But Dio's guardian, a hawk with the power of an Egyptian god, will kill anything and anyone...who threatens his master. It's the ultimate superpowered dog vs. bird battle! An epic horror-action-adventure! Once there was a mighty bloodline of heroes: the Joestars. In the 1880s, Englishman Jonathan Joestar gave his life to defeat Dio, a megalomaniacal vampire. Now, 100 years later, Dio is back, and Jonathan's descendants must travel to Egypt to destroy their ancestral enemy once and for all. On one side: Joseph Joestar and Jotaro Kujo ("JoJo" for short)...a globetrotting martial artist and his delinquent Japanese-English grandson. On the other side: a vampire and an army of murderers possessed by evil spirits, the monstrous "Stands." But Jotaro and Joseph have "Stands" too...and the stage is set for a terrifying battle as the heroes fight their way around the world! Adapted into anime, action figures and video games, "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" is one of the weirdest, most influential Jump manga ever! (VIZ's version of "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" starts with volume 13, the most popular part of the generational storyline, skipping most of the story of Jonathan and Joseph.)"

Author Biography - Hirohiko Araki
Hirohiko Araki made his manga debut in 1981 with the Wild West story story Buso Poker. He experimented with several genres, including mystery (Mashonen B.T.) and action-horror (Baoh), before beginning JoJo's Bizarre Adventure in 1987. Propelled by imaginative storylines, weird imagery and individualistic artwork, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure ran for 80 volumes, making it one of the longest-running and most popular shonen manga ever. Araki's current works include a new series set in the JoJo universe, Steel Ball Run. He has been credited as an influence by many artists, including Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King) and Kazuki Takahashi (Yu-Gi-Oh!)."
