The Ginyu Force

Trapped on war-torn Planet Namek, Earth's heroes Gohan, Kuririn and Bulma struggle to keep the Dragon Balls out of the hands of both Vegeta and the planet-destroying Emperor Freeza. But even a power-up courtesy of the Great Elder of Namek may not be enough to save them from Freeza's reinforcements: the Ginyu Force, the five strongest fighters in outer space, led by the supervillain Captain Ginyu! Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Gohan and Kuririn find themselves with an unlikely ally as their theatrical enemies ro-sham-bo for the honor of who gets to kill them first![1]

Volume introduction by Akira Toriyama

The cover flap image, featuring Tori-Bot

"I fairly confident about my health. I hardly ever get stiff shoulders, but recently, my right hand has been sore and it's getting to the point where it's painful. When I think about it, it's almost been eleven years of straight manga-drawing since I started Dr. Slump on through to Dragon Ball, and I haven't had much time off. Hey, maybe a doctor will force me to take three months off! (Thought actually, my hands been fine since yesterday…darn it!)"[1]
