Dragon Ball Multiverse is a fan made manga or also known as “Dojinshi” (based off of the original manga series Dragon Ball created by Akira Toriyama) made by Salagir and Gogeta Jr. Along with the help of many other really talented individuals, the DBM team produces new content usually 2-4 pages a week.
The story of Dragon Ball Multiverse focuses on a unique one time event: a cross universe tournament. The competitors taking part of this event are strongest of each of their respective universes. The tournament is held in Universe 0, where there is apparently no life at all so it is ok for all competitors to go all out using their full power. Each universe can be viewed as an alternate timeline of sorts following a basic pattern but with different outcomes due to unexpected events.
There are 20 universes in total; Each having the same Dragon Ball story, but with different outcomes. For example the original Dragon Ball story that we all know and love follows Universe 18 in this multiverse series. In Universe 16 the story stayed the same as Universe 18 but Vegetto never separated while battling Buu, causing the timeline from then on to become different than the original story. Another Example is Universe 17, the events are unchanged from the original story up until the battle between Gohan and Cell, this time the winner is Cell. After winning the battle Cell eliminates the rest of the Z-Fighters and has his way with the Earth and ultimately the universe.
The winner of the tournament will receive 3 wishes from the Namekian Dragon Porunga. The tournament was arranged by the Vargas with help from the Namekians and the permission from the Kaioshins (Supreme Kais) who agreed to this event for one time only, and that after the tournament is over and the winner is determined, they would grant the winner their prize, and then lastly decide to permanently close all links to all of the universes for good.
The story line of Dragon Ball Multiverse (DBM for short) is really well produced. Not only is it following the main story line the events taking place during the tournament (which is amazing), but it’s also giving you universe special chapters giving you a chance to see new worlds and lives by showing its readers the diversity of what could have happened if… The Saiyans defeated Frieza before he had a chance to destroy them… Kakarotto never became good and never became the hero known as Goku… Majin Buu won the fight… Etc…
The art/illustration for DBM is great as well. Gogeta Jr. was the original cartoonist for the main DBM story line and the new cartoonist for the main story line is Asura (who I personally believe to be one of the best at replicating Akira Toriyama’s art style). There have been many great cartoonists for the universe special chapters that use a similar style of Akira Toriyama, as well as some that use theirs own style to interpret the Dragon Ball world.
Overall I’d say this is one of the best fan made Dragon Ball Mangas out there and a great read for anyone who is a fan of Dragon Ball.
