Battlefield Namek

On the green skies and blue plains of Planet Namek, a war rages between two equally evil forces: Emperor Freeza, who wants to use Namek's Dragon Balls to become immortal, and Vegeta, last prince of the Saiyans, who has betrayed his former master in search of the same prize. Trapped between these two mighty enemies are the peaceful Namekians and Earth's heroes Kuririn, Gohan and Bulma! As Freeza's henchmen Dodoria and Zarbon trade blows with the ever-stronger Vegeta, the Earthlings put their own lives at risk to protect the Namekians until Son Goku's spaceship arrives. But can even Goku's new training regimen—under 20 times Earth's gravity—prepare him for what awaits on this alien world?[1]

Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama

"So after the toothache (see DBZ Vol. 4), one of three lumps of fat on my left buttock became inflamedand painful. It was pretty much right exactly where I put my weight when I sit down, so I went right away to the hospital to have it surgically removed. The surgery was done without anesthesia, so it hurt so bad much I thought I was gonna die! After two weeks, when that wound from the surgery was healing up, I had the other two lumps removed too. So for about one month, I had to work while sitting on my right buttock. Yes indeed, it was hell…"[1]
