"A truly whimsical quick read."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This short series of 12 chapters takes place about 10 years before the events of Dragon Ball (in where Son Goku and a giant dead fish meet Bulma Briefs).

Jaco is sent on a mission by the Intergalactic Patrolmen to kill an evil Alien before it lands on Earth. Jaco absent mindedly crashes into the Moon and plummets to Earth. It's here where his bizarre and zany adventures begin.

This short series is filled with the early 80's Flair of Akira Toriyama's work of the Time. Taking inspiration from Dr Slump and the Early Chapters of Dragon Ball. Though it was published just over a year ago it feels like you are right back at the beginning of the Author's career.

The final chapter of this story outlines that the Manga Dragon World and the Anime Dragon World are very different entities.

5/5 stars Great Artwork, Zany Writing and that Toriyama Flair.

Description

Akira Toriyama, manga legend and creator of Dragon Ball Z, is back with the quirky comedy Jaco the Galactic Patrolman! Retired scientist Omori lives alone on a deserted island while continuing his research into time-travel. His quiet life is interrupted when galactic patrolman Jaco crash-lands and decided to move in with him. Can Jaco get along with the old man long enough to save the earth from a dangerous threat? Includes a special bonus chapter introducing Dragon Ball Z hero Goku's parents!

Author Biography

Renowned worldwide for his playful, innovative storytelling and humorous, distinctive art style, Akira Toriyama burst onto the manga scene in 1980 with the wildly popular Dr. Slump. His hit series Dragon Ball (published in the U.S. as Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z) ran from 1984 to 1995 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. He is also known for his design work on video games such as Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger, Tobal No. 1, and most recently, Blue Dragon. His recent manga works include COWA!, Kajika, Sand Land, Neko Majin, and a children's book, Toccio the Angel. He lives with his family in Japan.
