With the passing of Akira Toriyama, we wanted to take a look at his most famous work, and one of the most popular manga/anime series of all time, the Dragon Ball series.

We go back to the first volume from 1986 and it's not what we expected!

Then we continue Earth X with #12 in which... uhh... we can't remember anything that happened. Did anything happen?  DID ANYTHING HAPPEN??

Next Time: April Fools Day where Carol Danvers marries her son in Avengers #200 + Spider-Ham meets Baron Zebro in Peter Porker, The Spectacular Spider-Ham #16 + the Earth X Finale!

It's time for us to visit the late 90s with Kurt Busiek and George Perez's relaunch of The Avengers! Who will be on the new roster? Will we remember any of the history that Busiek digs up?

And is it ever a good idea to relaunch a book with an alternate reality story?

Then we go onto Earth X #11 where we say farewell to the character with the best one-liners.

Next Time: Dragon Ball, Vol. 1

Superman's still a fascist and now his best friend, Lex Luthor, is here to help him change the world in the 2nd half of Injustice: Year One.

Will Superman kill again? He will; he'll do it a lot. It's true Superdickery.

Then we continue to Earth X #10 where the Skull continues to be a major asshole as Captain America and his forces attack.

Next Time: Avengers (1998) #1-6 by Kurt Busiek & George Perez
