Goku’s late, and his friends are going to pay the price for it! Catch all the action in this 3rd volume of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball Z shonen manga series.
Summary of the Book
The Z Fighters are facing the evil Saiyans Nappa and Vegeta in battle. So far, the five of them seem outmatched by the giant Saiyan Nappa, who doesn’t even seem to have broken a sweat! Can Tenshinhan, Chaozu, Kuririn, Piccolo and Gohan hold on until their greatest hope, Goku, arrives? It seems to be a difficult question because Goku is running down the million-kilometer long Serpent Road. And even when he arrives, is his training in the Kaio-ken technique going to be enough to beat Nappa? And what of Vegeta, the shorter Saiyan seems to scare the wits out of Nappa. Could he really be much stronger than Nappa? And if he is, does Goku stand a sliver of a chance at beating him?
