Go Back-o and Read Jaco!


Are you feeling a bit down because you just signed up for Weekly Shonen Jump and missed out on Akira Toriyama's Jaco the Galactic Patrolman? Well, where in tarnation have you been recently?! You can buy back issues of Weekly Shonen Jump going back three months, meaning you can buy all the issues that have Jaco (11 chapters total!). And each issue is a bargain for $0.99! Back issues are only available for purchase on the web in the U.S./Canada, but can be accessed on all Weekly Shonen Jump supported devices in the My Manga section. 

Become a TRUE SUPER ELITE and get all the Jaco chapters, starting with the July 15, 2013 issue! But remember, back issues available for purchase only go back three months, so that means you have two weeks until the July 15 issue is off the shelves!

Weekly Shonen Jump back issues are now available at VIZManga!

Hi, I've just signed up for one year of SJ Weekly. I would like to buy all back issues on my iPad but I can't find link where. Can you help me with that?

As of right now, back issues are available for purchase only online through your web browser and not through an app (www.vizmanga.com). However, once you make your purchase online, you can view the issues you bought on any device (smart phone, tablet, etc). It'll just show up in your MY MANGA section.

Also, it's unlikely that ALL back issues will ever be able to be purchased because in issues older than three months, those chapters are available in graphic novels instead. With the exception of World Trigger and One Punch Man (for now), the other manga are available in graphic novel format. DBZ in color will be making its way into a printed GN format too, according to what was announced at Anime Expo in July. (maybe digital too? not sure)


Toriko and Nura volumes may take a little while to catch up, but it will get there.

For the reasons you mentioned. I think all the back issues should be made available. One Piece volume 68, the latest volume available, ends at chapter 673. The earliest chapter available in a back issue right now is chapter 713. That gap is 40 issues wide, which is about 10 months on top of the 3 months of back issues currently available for purchase. The story is similar for other series as well. Why should a paid subscriber not be allowed to purchase these back issues.
