This isn’t the first time that a Dragon Ball cover was recreated though, as there have been many such remakes.

In fact, this is the 20th remade cover following similar works by other renowned manga artists.

Dragon Ball is one of the most popular manga titles ever, and it arguably became the template for all modern shonen series.

While this is not creator Akira Toriyama’s first manga, it is undoubtedly his most renowned. It started back in 1984, meaning 2024 will mark the series’ 40th anniversary.

The series’ anniversary is in December 2024, though in the lead-up to it, the Dragon Ball Super Gallery project was launched.

Beginning in August 2021, renowned manga artists recreated Dragon Ball volume covers.

Some of the artists that were tapped to remake the covers include the likes of Hirohiko Araki (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure), Tite Kubo (Bleach), Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto), and Koji Inada (Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai), among others.

Aside from veteran manga artists, the project also tapped popular active authors, including Demon Slayer creator Koyoharu Gotouge, as well as Spy x Family author Tatsuya Endo.

Even Chainsaw Man's Tatsuki Fujimoto took part in the project.

The total number of planned covers is 42, with a new cover being released each month until we reach the 40th anniversary.

For her project entry, Posuka recreated the Volume 22 cover which features Goku, Krillin, and a young Gohan about to climb into a car.

In her remake, Posuka went in a slightly different direction as she added two Namekians at the back of the car.

The artwork also has a unique perspective and a detailed background.

Many fans agreed that this is an impressive recreation, with praise being given for its clean and good-looking art style.

Though it seems that fans of Posuka’s work are not surprised given how excellent her works are.

There’s currently no word yet on the next artist who will release artwork for the project.

But we’ll likely see the likes of Eiichiro Oda and Yoshihiro Togashi take part sometime soon.
