R to L (Japanese Style)

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...

Turtle vs. Crane The next Tenka'ichi BudMkai martial arts tournament is just around the corner, and an eager Son Goku can't wait to face even tougher fighters for the "Strongest Under the Heavens" title! Among the contestants are pipsqueak Chaozu and three-eyed Tenshinhan, deadly disciples of Tsuru-Sen'nin, the Crane Hermit! As it turns out, Tsuru-Sen'nin is an old rival of Goku's teacher Kame-Sen'nin (also known as the Turtle Hermit). What's worse, Tsuru-Sen'nin orders Chaozu and Tenshinhan to kill the Kame-Sen'nin disciples! Will crane-style kung fu beat out turtle style? As these two martial arts schools duke it out in the tournament ring, things just might turn fatal!

Great book, after i started i couldn't stop,although it was kind of annoying reading from right to left. Any way the action is great and the end leaves you hanging.

This is a very funny book. I have the first three dragonball comics. I've read each one at least twice. I can't wait till #4 comes out.

If you haven't heard of Dragonball, or Dragonball Z, you're probably not reading this. Dragonball is the precursor to Dragonball Z, and is much more light-hearted and funny. Goku and Krillin are young kids under the tutelage of Master Roshi, the invincible old turtle hermit in a fantastic land of great characters and crazy adventures. In volume 4, the boys are back in the World Martial Arts Tournament, and this time Goku is up against the students of Master Roshi's arch rival, the Crane Hermit. (whom DBZ fans will recognize Tien and Chaozu.) The end of this volume also introduces the evil King Piccolo. If you're new to Dragonball, you can still enjoy this volume--but if you're ordering from online, why would you order number four when you could order number one?
