This graphic novel collects DRAGON BALL #1 through #6. (DRAGON BALL Z will be available as a graphic novel in August.)
IN THIS VOLUME: Who or what will Goku and Bulma encounter on their quest for the Dragon Balls? One ball is owned by the Turtle Hermit, a venerable, respected (old, lecherous) martial artist who'll gladly give it up...for a price! One ball is in a humble village, but to get it, they'll have to save the village from Oolong, the shapeshifting terror! Then, with a humbled Oolong in tow, it's off to the desert where they are attacked by the bandit Yamcha and his assistant Pu'ar! The next ball is on fiery Frypan Mountain, guarded by the fearsome Ox King...and his fearsome daughter Chi-chi! But with magic cloud and magic staff in tow, Goku is ready to face anything!

It seems the Red Ribbon saga is almost at its end. Here are my favorite moments:
-Taopaipai. I thought General Blue was nuts, but this guy... he's a master assassin. Truly. He can kill people with his tongue! In one strike!
-It was funny how Taopaipai got upset about Goku ruining his clothes. He even makes Commander Red wait three days for his Dragon Balls, just so he can get a new outfit.
-Goku manages to fight the entire Red Ribbon army at their headquarters.
-Commander Red reveals that he wants the Dragon Balls so he can become taller, not for world domination. Ha.
I think the only thing I could nitpick about the series so far is how Goku easily defeats the bad guys (after a bit of training of course). But Dragon Ball is a comedy/adventure so an unstoppable kid like Goku is fitting.
