A digital version of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman also debuts on January 6, 2015 for $6.99 (USD/CAN) from VIZManga.com and through the VIZ Manga App for the Apple iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® touch, Android-powered smart phones. The digital volume of Jaco the Galactic Patrolman can also be purchased through the NOOK, Kobo, comiXology, Kindle, iBooks and Google Play stores.
“Jaco The Galactic Patrolman is Akira Toriyama’s first new release in over a decade and notably features some must-read Dragon Ball Z content related to the parents of Goku, the hero of his other bestselling manga series,” says Alexis Kirsch, Editor. “Jaco is an alien who is very proud, but also extremely clumsy. Together with the reclusive scientist, Omori, and Tights, a mysterious girl that dreams of becoming a sci-fi novelist, the stage is set for fun and zany adventures. Readers of all ages won’t want to miss this fun new series by one of the greatest names in manga!”
