(W/A) Katsuya Terada

After a seven-year hiatus, Katsuya Terada, one of Japan's most sought-after commercial illustrators, returns to his adaptation of this saga with The Monkey King Volume 2. A rare example of a manga painted entirely in full color, The Monkey King is the epic of Goku, a savage ape once imprisoned by Lord Buddha himself, but now freed by the monk Sanzo to serve as his bodyguard on a journey to the West . . . across a wasteland filled with weird, violent, and sexy demons!

Truly one of the most amazing artists to ever come out of Japan, Terada has remained relatively unknown in America, due to the limited number of books available in English. Despite having produced a limited number of finished comics, Terada has garnered acclaim in the states for a few, well known art books that fetch high prices on the aftermarket, so don't miss out on your chance to get new work from him at cover price! Witness the insane dribble of a master RAKAGUKING!! RECOMMENDED BY CASEY!
