DC Comics' Monkey Prince #7 Will Return In October

Monkey Prince by Gene Luen Yang and Bernard Chang is a twelve-issue mini-series published by DC Comics, remaking the Monkey King legend for the DC Universe, and having been published by DC every month through 2022 since the beginning of February. But after the sixth issue of the comic book published this week for the beginning of July… there has been no sign of the comic book in question in the August or September 2022 solicitations for DC Comics. But I'm told it should pop up in the next one as #7 will return from DC Comics in early October 2022. Here are those solicits that have been published so far.

Monkey Prince #7 Will Return In October

MONKEY PRINCE #1 (OF 12) CVR A BERNARD CHANG
(W) Gene Luen Yang (A/CA) Bernard Chang
Introducing the newest hero in the DCU, the great sage, equal to the heavens, better than his predecessor the legendary Monkey King, even better than the Justice League—and definitely the Teen Titans—(actually, all the heroes combined), everyone put your hands together for…the Monkey Prince! Marcus Sun moves around a lot because his adoptive parents are freelance henchpeople, so this month he finds himself as the new kid at Gotham City High School, where a mysterious man with pig features asks Marcus to walk through a water curtain to reveal himself as who Marcus really is…someone who has adventured through The Journey to the West, can transform into 72 different formations, can clone himself using his hairs, and is called…the Monkey Prince!

(W) Gene Luen Yang (A) Bernard Chang (CA) Benard Chang
Batman and Robin fight with Pigsy over…a part of Monkey Prince's body that fell off and is rolling around moving on its own? And Pigsy better grab it quickly, before Monkey Prince transforms back into Marcus Sun, because there's no way a regular teenager could survive that!

And this penguin demon has his eyes on…Batman! Uh-oh, Monkey Prince, it's bad enough you have to keep hiding your tail when you're Marcus, and how your circlet keeps returning latched onto your body as something else every time you try to get rid of it—but now cannibalism is also on the menu? YEOW!
