Until November 2024 we will be with the tributes to the Manga of “dragonball“, for those who have doubts with that of ‘conversions’ of covers that have been carried out to date. And indeed, as the title of the article has revealed to you, today’s surprise is that we have one more of the aforementioned covers, this being the one that puts the cartoonist of the Manga of “The Promised Neverland”, Demizu Posuka, as the one in charge of carrying out the management.

The Dragon Ball Manga adds the cartoonist of The Promised Neverland to the 40th anniversary tribute

So, then I leave you with the result that Posuka-sensei has redraw the cover of the Manga volume 22 from “Dragon Ball” (via WSJ_manga):

In case there is any doubt, I will point out that the cover on the left is the one drawn for the occasion by the artist of “The Promised Neverland”, while the cover on the right is the original created by Akira Toriyama himself. Honestly, I have to say that I love the work that Posuka Demizu has done this time.

The most remarkable thing that I see in the illustration is that even adding characters and scenery keeps the essence wonderfully from the original cover. Not only that, but the drawing itself looks great, and the point of perspective that Akira Toriyama used in the first instance is used perfectly in the redesign.

We still have a little more than half of this project in homage to “Dragon Ball”, and the truth is that I have no idea of ​​the authors that will come into play soon. The truth is, it is becoming more and more difficult for me to be sure of my personal TOP with the names that have participated and the different proposals that have seen the light. As the level continues at this rate, it seems to me that I will have to rethink making the classification of 0.
