Happy New Year!
DC’s Monkey Prince Brings Peace, Prosperity and Good Fortune to Lunar New Year 2022 on 2/1, Plus Mischief and Mayhem!
New 12-Issue Comic Book Series by Gene Luen Yang and Bernard Chang to Debut on February 1
Introducing the newest hero in the DCU, the great sage, equal to the heavens, better than his predecessor the legendary Monkey King, even better than the Justice League—and definitely the Teen Titans—(actually, all the heroes combined), everyone put your hands together for…the Monkey Prince!
Gene Luen Yang and Bernard Chang’s new Monkey Prince series, with color by Sebastian Cheng and lettering by Janice Chiang, launches on Lunar New Year (February 1) with a main cover by Chang and Cheng, an open-to-order variant cover by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau 劉丕政, a 1:25 incentive cover by AnandRK, a 1:50 incentive cover by Dustin Nguyen, and a TEAM variant by Zao Dao 早稻. Orders for the Lucky Red Envelope foil variant by Bernard Chang will be allocated.
Marcus Sun moves around a lot because his adoptive parents are freelance henchpeople, so this month he finds himself as the new kid at Gotham City High School, where a mysterious man with pig features asks Marcus to walk through a water curtain to reveal himself as who Marcus really is…someone who has adventured through The Journey to the West, can transform into 72 different formations, can clone himself using his hairs, and is called…the Monkey Prince!
Monkey Prince #1 (of 12) by writer Gene Luen Yang 楊謹倫, artist Bernard Chang 張伯納, colorist Sebastian Cheng 鍾偉傑, and letterer Janice Chiang 蒋慧珍 will publish on February 1. DC’s Jessica Chen 陳穎珊 edits Monkey Prince.
DC’s Monkey Prince first debuted in DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration and then appeared during DC FanDome with a 10-page story “Apokolips in the Heavenly Realm.” Both comics are available to read on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE, DC’s digital subscription platform.
