Episode #0440! Mike and Julian discuss some of the ideas in "Dr. Slump" that would later make their way into "Dragon Ball" before moving on to "Dragon Boy", a two-part comic Akira Toriyama drew in 1983 which served as one step along the way to creating "Dragon Ball" itself. What changes are visible in the artwork, panel construction, and writing style? Join us for the first of a two-part journey leading up to "Dragon Ball" in 1984!

I've always been interested in the proto-Dragon Ball stuff! Was great to hear a synopsis of this one. It was mentioned that it's pretty easy to find it nowadays, does that include in English?

No, these proto-works have not been officially licensed/released in English. We, of course, hope that one day they will! Other countries/publishers have licensed the one-shot compilations, so they're certainly on the table for a company like Viz.
