Dragonball Multiverse http://www.dragonball-multiverse.com/en/partenaires.html is a large fan based comic that has been going on for a few years now, but over time i wonder if there blurring the lines between running a comic that promotes a franchise and basically setting up their own useing the DB brand.
I orginally didn't have problems with the comic but I have doubts over a few factors, one is setting up a donation to fund for their conventions, going to the Japan expo for example to sell copies of their multiverse comic. That idea i think is becomming misleading given the presentation of the drawings is by gogeta jr but the specials are drawn by lesser artists and are there at the convention to give the impression they are just as talented. I know this as I had a friend who went to japan 2011 exo and expressed his surprise when finding out the content inside the chapter wasn't like anything on the cover.
The other devlopment is many of DBM partner sites are links to a site made by the group called http://www.amilova.com/en/xp_gold.html where as you can tell though membership is free, there are upgrade accounts that you have to pay for, as well as links to ebay to sell their own stuff.
I may be wrong but I think its a issue worth raising if the makers of DBM are useing Dragonball to advertise their own products. If people want to add their own comments that's fine, I'll be happy to throw in my own evidence on this debate.
