Akira Toriyama is famous for his Dragon Ball manga, and his SAND LAND manga was originally serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from May to August 2000 and later published in a single volume. Viz Media licensed it in English in 2003, and they describe the story:
In the far future, war has destroyed the entire Earth, leaving only a barren wasteland where the supply of water is controlled by the greedy king. In search of a long-lost lake, Sheriff Rao asked the king of the demons for help…and got the king’s son, Beelzebub, and his assistant, Thief. Together the unlikely trio sets off across the desert, facing dragons, bandits and the deadliest foe of all… the King’s army itself! It’s travel adventure and tank action in this new story from Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Z!
