After the events of Lazarus Planet, Monkey Prince discovers how he is related to the Monkey King, and the truth of who he is shakes him to the core. Everything he knows is questioned, and how can he exist anymore knowing who he actually is? And did Shifu Pigsy know all along? And if so, why didn’t he tell Marcus?

    Monkey Prince #12 concludes the 12-part limited series of this character in spectacular fashion. Bernard Changs art continues to be fantastic and I cannot wait to see where Gene Luen Yang takes the character from here. Read Full Review

    Overall, this final issue definitely suffers a bit from story compression as it rushes to its conclusion, but it nails the most important thingbringing Marcus' solo arc to a close in a way where it feels like he's actually grown. Read Full Review

    Very solid ending. I worry that like Kenan Kong, the Prince will be forgotten or pushed so far on the sidelines as to be unimportant. I have really liked this series, the perfect mix of action and fun you would expect with a new teenage hero. Maybe DC can give us a Monkey Prince and Supergirl special in the summer?

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 8, 2023

    Its taken about eleven issues, but Monkey Prince has found a very cool and distinctive kind of definition over the course of his mini-series. What seemed like it might have been a strange experiment when it started really feels like a nice addition to the DC Universe. Its too bad this ends up being the final issue of the series.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lukas Shayo Mar 7, 2023

    An excellent issue that helps wrap up the Lazarus Planet story arc, while also helping Monkey Prince come to terms with his identity. Unfortunately, with so many open opportunities for future exploration, Monkey Prince#12 doesn't provide a conclusion for a character who may not enjoy another solo run. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 7, 2023

    Monkey Prince #12 ends the series with fun action and at least one big reveal, but most of the plot points are not set up or explained, so it feels like the creators threw the issue together to be done with it. Read Full Review
