    All in all, another solid entry into this really fun series. I'm excited to see how it unfolds in the coming issues as we get to flesh out this new and exciting DC character.

    Monkey Prince #2 is a ridiculously fun follow-up chapter to the already stunning debut. Gene Luen Yang’s writing is stylistically unique among Western comics, and consistently nails his humor while moving the plot forward in an engaging direction. The visuals from Bernard Chang and Sebastian Cheng are energetic, vivid, and brilliantly animated, making this one of the best looking ‘Big 2’ comics on stands today. Be sure to grab this issue when it hits shelves on March 1st!

    If you miss Yang’s work on The Terrifics or New Super-Man, you’ll be happy to know that The Monkey Prince #2 is a very well-crafted story, with great art and coloring that always brings that little bit more life to the imagery, using a Batman guest-shot to great effect and making me imagine where this story might go, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall. The Monkey Prince is a lovely addition to the DC Universe, and if there’s any justice, he’ll be around for a good long time. (I also have my fingers crossed for a New Super-Man appearance.)

    The new DC teen hero adventure by the writer of New Super-man and Superman Smashes the Klan continues to be a refreshing change of pace, swapping out any serious issues for a teen superhero adventure with some surreal mythological vibes.

    Monkey Prince #2 is fun and bonkers and energetic and a very fresh and original experience. It's also a little chaotic, with a few too many things happening all at once and the result is a book that manages to be pretty average even if a ton of fun. A big part of that is Gene Luen Yang is an incredible writer. While Monkey Prince #2 is overstuffed with things, Yang writes those things well—and his take on Damian Wayne in particular is hilarious—so it makes the chaos worthwhile. Bernard Chang's art is also just delightful and if you can buckle in and accept that this is going to be a full throttle bit of madness, you'll have a good time.
