I think Cowa is a perfect recommendation for Dragon Ball, and vice-versa. Both are family friendly shonen titles that are a mix of adventure and comedy. They both also have a big cast of memorable characters. Akira Toriyama is the creator of both titles, so the art and story-telling styles are extremely similar. The only big difference is the amount of action in the later chapters of Dragon Ball.
