Based on the 16th-century, Chinese fantasy adventure classic, Journey To The West (also the inspiration for Dragon Ball!) Katsuya Terada's take on the legend of the Monkey King is a savage, lusty saga.

He raised holy hell as the baddest ape in Ancient China 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!

Story and art by Katsuya Terada.
