Dust Jacket & Obi

The comic’s dust jacket features the film’s main key image and theatrical artwork for its front cover, while the back cover showcases Jaco peeking out from behind a film roll of screen shots. ISBN and pricing information are listed alongside the story’s brief summary. The inside flaps tease more of the story and advertise the previous Film Anime Comic for Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, the Anime Comic for the 2008 Jump Super Anime Tour Special, the Film Anime Comic re-releases for the 8th and 12th Dragon Ball Z movies, and the then-recently-completed TV Anime Comics for the Dragon Ball Z television series.

The comic’s obi promotes the then-new 30th anniversary “Super History Book” as well as the DVD and Blu-ray home video release for Resurrection ‘F’ itself.

Volume Contents

The comic’s standard front and back cover (sans dust jacket) use a purple-toned version of the film’s main character artwork.

The book contains material introducing the characters in the story before covering the entirety of the film itself. After this, promotional material reviews the previous film (and related home releases) before wrapping up with designs and a message from original author Akira Toriyama. Two final pages advertise the home video release of the Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ movie itself.
