Not the legendary Monkey King of the famous Chinese classic, Journey to the West, but rather a new monkey monarch, Monkey Prince is due to debut in line with the Chinese Lunar New Year 2022 from DC Comics. And to mark this occasion, DC Comics have unveiled a very special ‘Lucky Red Envelope Foil Variant’ cover with orders closing on Sunday 12th December. The remainder of the Monkey Prince #1 covers, including the main cover, the open-to-order variant cover, and 1:25 and 1:50 incentive covers will FOC on January 9th. But, to get your hands on the gold foil variant, don’t leave it to luck and put your order in with your local comic book store now.
Written by Gene Luen Yang with art by Bernard Chang, Monkey Prince will be a 12 issue series, out Tuesday 1st February
“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!”
