[What is good]
Toriyama's drawings are amazing. First half is great adventure second part is great action. It is a work that I will reread forever. I like that the story follows Goku from when he is a very small child until he's a grandpa. Not a lot of shonen manga do that.
[What is bad]
I don't like what happened to Gohan's character after the Cell games.
A well beloved comic that everyone should read.

I really loved comics and anime of Dragonball in the past.
When Akira Toriyama finished the writing on Weekly Boys Jump, I feel everything is over for the magazine, though it wasn't truth.
But at the time, the existence of Dragon ball was so big.
And this one gave big impact to other later titles.
Yu Yu Hakusho exploits many good points from Dragon ball.
Considering the impact to the later works, I can say this is one of the works which can keep shining as one of the masterpiece in Japanese works' history.
