JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Part 5--Golden Wind, Vol. 1 (Hardcover)
If you’ve been following my reviews of Jojo’s you should know this is my most highly anticipated volume. Golden Wind is my favorite, out of eight parts Golden Wind is the one I return to the most. While Araki’s art is always stunning, Golden Wind’s art has to be one of my favorites. Compared to some of the previous parts, Golden Wind is also shorter, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Golden Wind also has, in my opinion, some of the best characters in the series. All of their names are Italian, and the English translations are really funny. Overall, one of the best Jojo parts, and I hope you like it just as much as me.
