A snippet from the JJBA official
movie guide has a 4 page spread interview with Araki where he mentions wanting
to create a 19 page backstory for Kakyoin but couldn’t due to Jump, at the time,
needing a weekly battle in the series. Also, a bit about main hero characters
having thick eyebrows and how difficult it was for him to draw Kakyoin’s
because they were thin.

Sometimes I feel like I have ruined comics for myself forever. Sometimes I will look at a normal comic, and think to myself, what the fuck are all these fucking panels doing on the same fucking page? SPREAD EM OUT DUDE! True story.
It is my fond hope that I have ruined, or will ruin, comics for everyone else too. Scott McCloud wrote what I am sure is a pretty good book called Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art. One day I hope to write a book called Ruining Comics: Forever. It will be a 1000 page book, and every page will simply be a photograph of my face.
The State Library of New South Wales holds Australia’s only copy of Earth Platinum - the world’s largest atlas.
This mammoth book standing at almost two metres tall will be on public display in the Mitchell Library Reading Room from Friday 7 April until 1 May 2017.
Come and visit the Mitchell Library and have your picture taken with this Guinness World Record holder.
Only 31 copies of the 150 kilo, limited edition atlas were released by publisher Millennium House (Sydney) in 2012.
More than 100 international cartographers, geographers and photographers from across the globe were involved in the production.
The atlas’s 128 pages contain 61 pages of maps, 27 images of famous locations (including St.Peter’s Basilica, the Antarctic and Machu Picchu) and a double-page spread of the world’s national flags. Many of the images were made from stitching together 1,000 individual photos, and the largest image has 12,000 photos joined together. It was printed in Italy and bound in Hong Kong.
The atlas is on public display again now, during the Easter school holidays.
