Comments on: Sand Land http://www.readaboutcomics.com/2004/04/05/sand-land/ Where to find out what's really good.

Probably, if I payed more attention to the way the book cover was designed, I’ve probably would’ve known that it was the same guy who had created the Dragon Ball series (including Z/GT).
Then later during my junior high years, I ran into again, but didn’t necessarily think it was going to be all that well, yet I was still taking consideration of buying it; but on a later date.
Though it wasn’t there, so I got frustrated.
I looked all over book stores, and I’ve had a thought for buying through the internet, but packaging and shipping cost way to much.
Later, I found a website to where I could actually read it, and copied it all down onto my PowerPoint – incase the website got banned for no good reasons at all!
And now, I regret not having the comics or the graphic juniors novel?! Because it has the original wording; plus, it’s something I would consider having to my Akira Toriyama collection. But at least I have something to remember it at all, right?
By the way, Beezlebub really is my favorite character; along with Shiba (I like to call him by his original name). He just seems like the kind of someone that is supposedly evil (as meantioned many times in the comic), but he knows when to withdraw his limits to where it can’t get out of hand. Plus, his looks are similar to the Dancing Devils from the Dragon Quest video game series from Square Enix!
I’ve underestimated this comic. Akira Toriyama did an excellent work; especially with the comical humor with the GameBoy and the PlayStation system. Despite some of the things he wasn’t going for (such as his interview on the tank’s designated design).
I apologize for anyone that had to read through all of this, but I am fairly specific, detailed, and descriptive at the most, and it needed to be let out from my system. Arigatto Gozaimasu!!!
