Eath’s greatest hero…is from outerspace

Dragon Ball introduces a young monkey-tailed boy named Goku (a wry update of the classic Chinese Monkey King legend), whose quiet life changes when he meets a girl named Bulma who is on a quest to collect 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 Bulma could use the help of a certain super-strong boy… (In Japan, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z were originally a single 42-volume series. VIZ Media’s Dragon Ball contains vols. 1-16 of the original Japanese Dragon Ball, from the beginning of the series to the climax of Goku’s last fight with Piccolo.)

Tired of losing their best operatives to Son Goku, the commanders of the Red Ribbon Army hire Taopaipai, the world’s greatest assassin, to take care of him permanently To have a chance of defeating this new opponent, Goku must climb the miles-high Karin Tower, where a mysterious hermit guards a jug of magic water which will grant the one who drinks it super strength. And while Goku struggles to get the magic water, time is running out…because Commander Red only needs two more Dragon Balls to make his deepest, darkest wishes come true
