From the Publisher
A seminal series from a legendary creator. Dragon Ball, a wry
update on the Chinese "Monkey King" myth, introduces us to Son
Goku, a young monkey-tailed boy whose quiet life is turned
upside-down when he meets Bulma, a girl determined to collect the
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 to get them she
needs the help of a certain super-strong boy...
Only Goku, Bulma and Kuririn stand between the Red Ribbon Army and
the seven Dragon Balls which can grant any wish in the world! Using
a submarine loaned by Kame-Sen''nin, the heroic trio explores a
pirate''s undersea cave in search of the next Dragon Ball, but
gun-toting bad guys are on their tail!
