Jaco the Galactic Patrolman

Jaco the Galactic Cover PageJaco the Galactic Patrolman

Jaco the Galactic Patrolman (or as it is called in Japanese, “Galaxy Patrol Jaco”) is Toriyama’s “probable final standalone manga series” which began its run in Weekly Shounen Jump magazine in Japan and the United States (only digitally) on July 13, 2013. This manga series is confirmed to tie in directly with Dragon Ball, but as to how, has not been revealed (Update: It is now, but we do not want to give spoilers!) There are many hints, such as an alien coming to destroy the planet that Jaco must confront to save the earth, but there is no actual confirmation of what is tied in with Dragon Ball. In fact, the cover of Jump introducing the series stated it is the “revival” of Dragon Ball, but we have yet to find out how this is (we now know)! Jaco made an appearance in the 2015 Dragon Ball Z movie titled “Revival of ‘F'”.

Because of the impending tie in, we have decided to delve into Jaco’s story as well.
