Arriving with a Bang comes the new live-action web series Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope, forever changing how Dragon Ball fans view their favorite series. Written by Derek Padula, the only professional Dragon Ball scholar in the world, author of the #1 best-selling “It’s Over 9,000!” book, and webmaster of The Dao of Dragon Ball, the Light of Hope web series is the first to stay true to the original work of Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball. The detailed plot reveals the conflict between the heroes of Son Gohan and Trunks as they struggle to survive against the deadly and mischievous pair of killer androids, #17 and #18. Gritty, dark, and action packed, Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope will do for Dragon Ball Z what Dark Knight did for Batman.
