The Monkey King (manga)

, also known as ''Katsuya Terada's The Monkey King'', is a dark fantasy manga series, written and illustrated in full color by Katsuya Terada.


Based on the 16th century Chinese fantasy adventure classic, ''Journey to the West'' Katsuya Terada's take on the legend of the Monkey King in a savage, lusty saga that The Portland Tribune calls "a Buddhist version of Conan the Barbarian." He raised holy hell as the baddest ape in ... until the Lord Buddha himself dropped a mountain on him! Now the Monkey King will get his parole with one condition - he must escort a Buddhist nun through the demon-haunted wastes of the Silk Road on an impossible quest: reach India and bring back a collection of sacred scrolls!
