As the "Strongest Under the Heavens" martial arts tournament draws to a close, only Goku, Piccolo, and Shen--the disguised Kami-sama--remain! But even a god is no match for Piccolo's new powers, and soon Goku finds himself fighting...alone... in a battle which will decide not just who is strongest, but who or what will rule the world! The audience flees for their lives as the struggle shakes the heavens apart in the gripping conclusion of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball!
Akira Toriyama's first weekly series, Dr. Slump, has entertained generations of readers in Japan since it was introduced in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1980. A few years later, he created his wildly popular Dragon Ball series, which brought him international success. Toriyama is also known for his character designs for video games, including Dragon Warrior, Chrono Trigger and Tobal No. 1.
