After decades of being one of the most popular manga and anime series in the world, Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball, or at least the portion that was made into the anime Dragon Ball Z, is finally being released as a full-color comic in North America.

Viz will release the first volume, which it's calling Dragon Ball Full Color, on February 4 (It looks like it's actually Vol. 17 of the original manga/vol. 1 of Dragon Ball Z). It'll be $19.99 in print and $12.99 as a digital download from VIZManga.com and the Viz smartphone and tablet app.

S.H. Figaurts ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Android 18 Action Figure Coming In June

S.H. Figuarts Android 18 DBZ
Bandai

As a kid watching Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z in the mid-late 1990s, I always thought the evil Dr. Gero's androids picked some kinda wacky Western clothes to wear, but these days Android 18 looks more or less like a contemporary teen. Shave half of her head and she'd more or less fit in on any major music video shoot, which makes Bandai's June/July release of the S.H. Figuarts Android 18 action figure just so timely.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – CHVRCHES, RoboCop, Corto Maltese, Star Wars & More

Untitled-2

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

‘Man Of Steel’s Faora Is Basically Vegeta And That’s A-OK! [Art]

faoravsvegetacomicsalliancemain

Like a lot of longtime Superman fans, I found myself experiencing my share of cognitive and emotional dissonance watching the new Man of Steel movie. One thing was clear, however: Faora was totally dope! The Kryptonian killing machine has her own unique history in DC Comics lore, but the movie version especially resonated with me because she's essentially the closest thing Dragon Ball Z fans may ever see to a live action Vegeta (the less we all entertain the idea of a sequel to Dragonball: Evolution, the better). Indulge in a comparison chart detailing some key similarities and differences between the two proud/psychotic alien warriors with us after the cut, but beware of mild spoilers if you haven't seen MoS just yet.
