Dragon Ball creator Toriyama returns to comedic serials with the story of an eccentric alien who befriends a grumpy old man. Intergalactic peacekeeper Jaco is assigned to protect Earth from an incoming threat, but he crashes his spaceship on a remote island inhabited by Omori, a retired engineer. Although bothered by the whole ordeal, Omori offers to help repair Jaco’s vessel and send the diminutive extraterrestrial on his way. In the meantime, Omori needs to keep Jaco’s presence a secret, despite a nosy government agent, as well as Jaco’s attention-grabbing antics and powers. An orbit-bound pop idol doppelganger and a bit of “time dilation” round out the book’s mayhem, which—like its hero—offers a whole lot packed into a small space. Toriyama’s punchy dialogue and waggish spirit are still intact, and his art, although pared down, remains sharp in its sense of movement and pace in this back-to-basics one-off from one of the industry’s giants. As an added bonus, there’s even a special treat for Dragon Ball fans. All ages. (Jan.)
