Volume 1: "The $$60,000,000,000 Man" Plot Summary:
Vash the Stampede, otherwise known as the Humanoid Typhoon, is the most wanted man in the universe. Depending who you listen to, he is either a ruthless cold-blooded killer, a giant over 10 feet tall, or something even worst. And then there is the bounty on his head - 60 billion double dollars.
Concerned about all the damage, an insurance company dispatches two young women to track down Vash and persuade him to stop all of the destruction. But, like everyone else, they are having a hard time finding him.
Along the way, they meet up with a tall, goofy fellow with a bright yellow shock of hair sticking straight up and a knack for getting out of dangerous situations with very creative and non-injurious solutions.
Will they ever find Vash, stop the destruction and get to go back home?
