Quick Thoughts: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency

Jojo Cover

ScrewAttack/ Pure Pwnage T Shirt Confusion

They really do look the same

It’s one of the those large company cross over events that many fans dream of and has been outsourced to some well known internet creators including creator of Homestuck Andrew Hussie, artists like Ashley Davis and Yuko Ota famous for their web presence in Hey Ash and Johnny Wander respectively.
