Description of this Book

Reads R to L (Japanese Style). Boo Who? Kaio-Shin--the Lord of Lords, the mightiest deity in the universe has summoned Son Goku and pals to try to avert certain doom for the entire universe. A djinn created eons ago by the wicked warlock Bibiddi is about to be resurrected by the Bibiddi's son, Bobiddi. The djinn possesses unfathomable power and is virtually indestructible once unleashed. Even his name strikes fear in the hearts of all humans: Boo! Kaio-Shin leads Goku to Bobiddi's spaceship, where Boo is gestating until he comes to full power. The crew battles Bobiddi's minions while the clock is ticking, but Dabra, the king of the demon plane, spots a weakness in their midst that he can easily manipulate: Vegeta's pride. The former prince of the Saiyans has been waiting impatiently to prove that he is the supreme member of his race--not Goku. Vegeta allows Bobiddi to enter his heart and feed him strength, just as long as it will allow him to finally defeat Goku. Vegeta's antics give Bobiddi all the time he needs to introduce the universe to its demise: a bouncing baby Boo!Change Your Perspective, Get BIG!! A Collection of Volumes 22 - 2

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.
