Continuing from the pages of May’s DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration #1 anthology, DC’s Monkey Prince will return in a new twelve-issue comic book series from writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Bernard Chang. The series kicks off on Lunar New Year, February 1, with select covers wrapped in gold printed lucky red envelopes to celebrate! Marcus Sun moves around a lot because his adoptive parents are freelance henchpeople, and at the beginning of the series 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!
