Collect All Seven Volumes

Volume 3 details the philosophical foundations of Goku’s training and the establishment of Dragon Ball as the quintessential battle manga.
Volume 4 follows Goku’s westward journey into unknown territories.
Volume 5 reveals the inner depth of the rivalry between Turtle and Crane.
Volume 6 shows you the minds of gods and demons.
Volume 7 helps you discover the true culture of the Dragon Ball anime and movies.
When you collect all 7 volumes you awaken your inner Shenron!
The plan is to finish publishing the remaining volumes in ebook, and then publish each of them in print.
These books are expensive to get into print because each of them is a non-fiction analysis with hundreds of foreign terms and citations. They need to be professionally indexed before I can print them, otherwise librarians, professors, and scholars won’t purchase the books.
To create the print books I need the revenue from the ebooks, so please support my writing and share the news with your friends. Let them know that Volume 1 is out now and the rest are coming soon.
This book will change everything you think you know, and give you new eyes.
It will take you on a wild and hilarious adventure from the begining to the end of Son Goku’s adventure.
And it will remind you of why you love this series so much.
Now step with me through the doorway of Dragon Ball Culture.
