Sand Land

Sand Land is a manga created by Akira Toriyama.

Sand Land was created as a one-shot manga piece and originally featured in the ever popular SHONEN JUMP.

The magna was originally supposed to be a short story about a man with a tank, but it progressed into something a lot more. This story is set in a desert wasteland in the far future after the earth had been left pretty much destroyed by war. Water is a scarcity and the only known supply is controlled by a very greedy king.

The main protagonists are a very unlikely group; Rao a human sheriff with an interesting past, Beelzebub the mischievous son of the Demon King Lucifer, and Thief another demon who is the assistant to Beelzebub. Together the group sets out on a journey to find another water source to share between humans and demons. Among their journey the group face many challenges between the monsters, bandits and the Kings Army.

Sand Land packs a great story into a singular book. Akira Toriyama wrote this back in the year 2000 and to this day it still seems to be able to foreshadow a possible future (most likely with out the demons) if we don’t take care of the earth. This is one of my personal favorites by Akira Toriyama. The art style and illustration alone in this book sparked my interest before I read the plot and purchased my own copy of Sand Land. After reading this story I would personally recommend this to anyone who is looking for something new to read as well as expand their personal collection of great manga.

Dragon Ball Super

Dragon Ball Super is a manga created by Akira Toriyama and illustrated by Toyotarō.

This is a continuation of the Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z series created by Akira Toriyama.

The Story takes place a few months after the Battle with Kid Buu and starts off  re-introducing the ever popular characters from the Dragon Ball world. Living in a time of peace, which most of you know won’t last too long.

Around the time this story begins a couple very interesting characters gets introduced, Lord Beerus the God of Destruction, and his faithful attendant Whis. Upon meeting the two new characters more back story of the Dragon Ball universe is reveled; As well as a new transformation. Flash forward a bit. You learn that Goku and Vegeta have been taken in as students to the very mysterious and powerful Whis (who is reveled to be Lord Beerus’ teacher). During the time spent training with Whis, Goku and Vegeta discover another new transformation. The pair of mighty saiyans get to show off a bit of their new found strength while training together, as well as battling a foe from the past (Frieza), although this battle is not shown in the manga it is only mentioned. The super dragon balls are finally reveled and a bit of their history as well. The God of Destruction from the universe 6 Champa and his faithful attendant Vados (who so happen to be the siblings of Beerus, and Whis respectively) come to universe 7 (the universe in which the main Dragon Ball story line takes place). The discovery of multiple universes, and the super dragon balls come to a bit of a surprise to the main characters. A proposal is made from Champa to Beerus for a cross universe martial arts tournament with very high stakes. Currently the story takes place during this tournament.

Dragon Ball Super’s story line is fast paced for the most part, and is a nice revival of the Dragon Ball series. The introduction of new characters and challenges is refreshing as well as having a bit of a nostalgic feel at times. Overall I’d say its a great manga and worth checking out.

Dragon Ball New Age or DBNA for short is created by Malik Torihane (Malik Studios).

Malik Torihane does both the Story and Art.

This is a fan made manga based on the Dragon Ball series by Akira Toriyama.

It takes place in parallel time 3 years after the ending of DBGT (Dragon Ball GT), as with any Dragon Ball series a new threat comes to disturb the peace.  Rigor the main antagonist of this story is not one to be taken lightly. Vegeta learns about his forgotten past and his connection with Rigor. For the DBNA series, Malik follows the manga canon of Toriyama’s Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z series, and alters several events in the Dragon Ball GT series to fit with DBNA’s canon.

This story that Malik has created to further fill the Awesome world of Dragon Ball moves at a nice pace; It’s story line and art quality are great and I would definitely recommend this to any Dragon Ball fan.
