Added to the list. I always enjoy a love story and the artwork is great too. I found this one King Cold's Revenge. I don't really know what's going on and it looks like King Cold can time travel or cross between dimensions since he's killing Z fighters from different continuities.
In the comments section, I saw THIS:

Don't worry about this, the comic is basically King Cold smashing everyone :D

by the person who posted the cold's revenge. It looks more of a fan-art than fan-comic IMO.

That makes sense! I'll add that note to the first post.

I've got a few recommendations for the side stories section: in addition to Little Saiyalings, its author, CDC, did two Dragon Ball Z fan comic specials. One was called "Dragonball CDC #1: At the Beach," and it's got the same kind of humor from the Saiyalings strip, only the characters are portrayed in their normal states (instead of them all being kids). It's got a bit of heart, too, and refreshingly, gives the women of the series a chance to shine:

Then there's "Dragonball CD #2, Christmas Surprise," which I think was later retitled, "Dragonball CDC - Tomako's Revenge." Although sadly unfinished, it's a very cool, movie-style story (in terms of continuity) that introduces a new villain and takes a plot point from the Saiyan Saga that Akira Toriyama forgot to tie up and uses it in a very clever way. I do hope CDC decides to one day come back and wrap it up (even though it has been many years), as there were a couple of interesting mysteries being set up:

@Gokitalo
Wow thank you! Little Saiyalings was one of my favorite fan comics. I wasn't aware the author had worked on other stories. I definitely look forward to reading these.

There's the Collabo Dragon fan-comic being written/drawn by the same person who made Super Vegeta Den. It's the DB/Dragon Quest crossover story about where Piccolo (the main character) fights the familiar enemies in Hell as its new guardian after DBGT ended and there's the new ally (from DQ) who'll later join Piccolo to help him fight them together and continue more until the end. It's really great in my opinion.

Here's the link of his website: http://m-pe.tv/u/page.php?uid=syugyo&id=2

However, there's all of image of those comics are too small to read but enjoy reading it.

@Z-Dragon
Do you know if there's an English translation for that comic? It looks cool but it's hard to navigate that website when it's all in Japanese.

There's the English translation for some pages of the "Collabo Dragon" comic on Deviantart: http://collabo2.deviantart.com/ However, he's stopped posting it anymore since 2012 for whatever reason, unfortunately. It seems like no one translates this comic to English there too, I guess.

I found this comic when I searched this japanese website thanks to the link that someone posted on DB Multiverse page somewhere a few years ago. I'll show you all how to search and read the comic despite in japanese:

Click "漫画「COLLABO DRAGON」" -> Right-click "Translate to English" first -> down to [過去ログ] ("Past Log" in english) -> "ⅱ ~ hero and demon king and the ultimate devil ~ <Chapter 1>" in english to click "画像" (image in english) to see the page, but it's too small to read unless using Ctrl + Zoom with scroll wheel mouse up to 150% or 175% which make the page pic big enough to read despite being a little blurry that make your eyes hurt a little, so remember to take a break from reading the comic when your eyes get strained.

I was reading a few of the English translated pages and it looks like a really cool comic! It's a shame it's no longer being translated. I'll post a link to the English translation and Japanese site.

3 Curses by betaruga - A short comic that features Vegeta seeing ghosts of his dead comrades. Has a wonderful sketchy art style and a rather funny punchline.

Favorite Shows: Cardcaptor Sakura, Doctor Who, Wallace and Gromit, Wakfu, Yu Yu Hakusho
Favorite Manga: Fullmetal Alchemist, Hunter x Hunter, Dragon Ball

There's French comic called Dragon Ball Kame. It's about Pan, Bra and other kids. It's in French, which I don't know. Maybe someone can translate it to English.
The art is really good.

Though not proper story-based comic, Ask Bardock and Raditz is very amusing.

The artwork is nice! Is it still updating and does it mention what year it takes place?

It is still updating and for the year - I don't know.
I hope someone who can speak French will translate it to English.

For anyone looking for an interesting read, give Dragon Ball Universe a try. While I see it on the list, I feel it deserves more credit due to its unique story and ability to think outside the small box of Dragon Ball doujinshis. DBU is a rare case of a DBZ sequal that doesn't try too hard to recycle everything that came before it. Universe has clear characters with clear motivations, and gives development to characters that lacked it in the main series (such as Goten). The artist also takes liberties with its art that develops its own style, but absolutely nails the humor aspect of DB. Also, while sometimes the artwork does not resemble Toriyama's style, the fight scenes are absolutely gorgeous.

If your looking for a unique and fun sequel of DBZ that doesn't dip into the usual cliches, I suggest you immediately check this out:
http://slangh.deviantart.com/gallery/26 ... offset=216

Also, the artwork at the beginning has a more rugged look that you don't see in most mangas, but if you don't like it just read on (the artwork gets much better).

For parodies, can we add Gast 'n' Palz to the list?
"That's right, everyone of my race can become a giant gorilla!" - Tullece (AB Groupe dub)

"I don't know about you, but that sounds kind of like your regime collapsing." - Kuriza (Break Through the Limit)

I really enjoyed that one and I loved the artstyle. Goten never got a chance to become his own character and doesn't contribute besides being the other half of Gotenks. It's nice to see a story that gives Goten more attention.

I found a japanese fancomic called God of Earth by Jeter Studio. Not sure what happened with Dende, who's still alive, but Android 18 has been chosen to be Kami. I'd link to it, but the only site I can find it on is NSFW, so just google jeter studio god of earth and scroll down a bit.
