Overview

Dragon Ball, Volume 9: Test of the All-Seeing Crone by Akira Toriyama, Gerard Jones

Your wish is granted...At long last, Akira Toriyama's action epic DRAGON BALL is available in the handy graphic novel format! Meet a naive young monkey-tailed boy named Goku, 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 needs Goku's help (and his super-strength)! So begins the adventure of a lifetime...

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!

I am a faithful follower of Akira. If you watch the show based on this book, Dragonball, you'll most definetally appreciate this title. This book/comic is funny, exciting, and clever. There are a few generic events but not many. My only suggestion is to make sure the owner is 12 years or older for volume #9. Enjoy!
