In Nevada, bar owner Ham Egg and outlaw Wild Bill Hecock get wind of the torn treasure map and join the race for the rest of it. Others soon join the quest for the whole map including Count Monte Christo, Arsene Lupin, and more in a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad chase around the world.

It is partially based on Tezuka’s early amateur work Old Man’s Treasure Island, which he created in 1945.
