Man I love Araki, and I love JoJo'sBA, but to say that Manga is the strongest form of art is idiotic.

Not entirely. Its certainly one of the more versatile of the narrative arts--using the strengths of both literature and graphic art while not being subject to their weaknesses.

It also has a major advantage over live action television and film because it's not constrained by the limitations of budget or effects technology.

It may not have been the most tactful of statements, but the sentiment behind it is perfectly valid.
