Here's something I found on the web:

WHAT IS JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE?
"JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" is a popular action manga by Hirohiko Araki which has run from 1987 to the present (with occasional breaks) in Japan's bestselling boys' comics magazine, "Shonen Jump" (home of "Ruroni Kenshin", "Dragon Ball", and many other titles). (Note that I'm talking about the Japanese "Weekly Shonen Jump", not the monthly English-language version.) Over 80 volumes of the series, each over 184 pages long, have been produced. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what genre it belongs to, as it has gradually changed with time; it started out as a Gothic horror story, changed to a martial arts story, and then became a sort of Japanese equivalent of a superhero comic, which it has stayed. However, there are a few common themes that connect all the different incarnations of the series:

(1) It's extremely violent
(2) It's full of weird and grotesque imagery
(3) It's loaded with references to Western rock music; almost all the important characters' names refer to rock bands, musicians or albums.

The storyline of "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" is divided into several parts which have different protagonists and take place in different places and times, but the focus is always on the Joestar/Kujo family. The series began in the 1880s, but the most popular part so far is the 3rd Series, set in the 1980s. It's this part which is the basis for the current video game and anime series. Beginning with Series 3, the main characters are all gifted with "Stands," a sort of superpowered psychic alter egos which take strange and sometimes frightening forms.

JoJos great. I like mangas and animes that are different in style, not like the typical big eyed school girl ones. The story is cool and it's actually one of the only mangas that really sucked me in. DC game was awwweesome!
