Dragon Ball: A Visual History | Akira Toriyama/Viz Media

The history of Dragon Ball comes to life in a new hardcover art book by Akira Toriyama.

Dragon Ball: A Visual History will be published under VIZ Media’s Shonen Jump imprint. Featuring stunning full-color artwork, rarely seen sketches, and exclusive commentary by Toriyama, Dragon Ball: A Visual History is the definitive journey through the artwork of one of the most influential and popular manga series of all time. The book is scheduled for a Fall 2019 release.

Internationally renowned for his playful, innovative storytelling and humorous, distinctive art style, Akira Toriyama burst onto the manga scene in 1980 with the wildly popular series, 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 Blue Dragon. His acclaimed manga works include COWA!, Kajika, SAND LAND, Neko Majin, and a children’s book, Toccio the Angel.
