This is usually the image I think of when I’m trying to describe how great of a comic Dragonball is. The fact that it’s a wonderfully silly fantasy adventure comic is lost on a lot of people whose first impression was Dragonball Z, an anime in which entire episodes would be devoted to charging up fireballs and longwinded expository speeches delivered mid-air above barren desert landscapes. In the beginning, Dragonball is somewhere between Goonies and Tintin, but with slapstick martial arts thrown in. A remarkable imaginative cast of characters deliver copious amounts of potty humor and groan-inducing wordplay, all set against a backdrop that ranges from Hiroshige-esque wilderness to cityscapes resembling the work of a more cheerful Moebius. So, anyone who’s curious about checking it out… You should do that.
Always preferred the original for those reasons.
