A seminal series from a legendary creator. Dragon Ball, a wry update on the Chinese "Monkey King" myth, introduces us to Son Goku, a young monkey-tailed boy whose quiet life is turned upside-down when he meets Bulma, a girl determined to collect the seven "Dragon Balls." If she gathers them all, an incredibly powerful dragon will appear and grant her one wish. But the precious orbs are scattered all over the world, and to get them she needs the help of a certain super-strong boy...


Goku has made it to the Tenka'ichi Budôkai, the world's #1 martial arts tournament...but even the training of the martial arts master Kame-Sen'nin hasn't prepared him for this! Only seven finalists remain. Will the champion be Goku? His fellow student Kuririn? Yamcha, master of the "Fist of the Wolf Fang"? Fighting woman Ran Fuan? Giran, a rubbery monster who's part dinosaur? Namu, an Indian mystic? Or Jackie Chun, the mysterious old man who may be the toughest fighter of all? There can be only one winner in the wildest, craziest battle ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seen the show? This is better. June 17 2009
By K. Steger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is amazing. It is wonderfully drawn. It is consistantly hilarious and mind-blowingly awesome. Fast-paced and addictive, this is an excellent buy. You won't be able to put it down. These VIZBIG volumes are really convenient. They pack a lot of action into one fabulous deal. And it is so much better and easier to find than the show!

Fun story, excellent artwork, and the couple of full color pages were amazing. I might be a bit biased since I am a huge Dragon Ball fan, but I definitely recommend to any fan of the series or of manga in general.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! The Censors Struck Again! Feb. 19 2010
By Robert Donohue - Published on Amazon.com
Although I'm an enormous fan of Toriyama,and especially of this series, I'm giving this printing a negative review based solely on VizBigs choice of censoring the small amount of nudity in the series.The censorship of artwork has to be one of the most irritating crimes in society to me.If someone were to purchase this series for a very young child and idiotic enough to not realize the adult nature of the content then that's their problem for not taking an interest in what their kids are viewing.I wish companies wouldn't ruin stuff for those of us who apreciate the beauty and humor of an artist like Toriyama simply because of some outmoded sense of morality that doesn't even make sense.The violence and nudity I'd seen over the years as I grew up certainly hasn't subverted my mind.Anyway I was looking forward to replacing my old DB mangas from viz with these nice big editions but I guess I'll have to hang onto them after all.Anyone who's just started picking up these editions who's a purist like me might want to hunt down the smaller editions first put out by viz graphics that don't have the censored content.Shame on your cowering to purile right-wing moralist jerks,viz editoral staff!
