    From early Chinese literature and animation, to Masaaki Sakai and Masako Natsume on Japanese television, to Stephen Chow in Hong Kong film, to Tsai Chih Chung s comics Journey to the West has inspired some amazing flights of fancy This version ranks with the best Sexed up and ultra violent, Terada s dark interpretation contrasts well with the hilarity of Chinese Odyssey and the whimsy of Monkey Magic It s a welcome addition to what continues to be a living myth.In fact, these stories feel like a [...]

    First of all, the art in Katsuya Terada s The Monkey King is the reason that I pursued the graphic novel in the first place, and in that respect, it did not disappoint The lusty, gruesome depictions of the Monkey King s adventures was definitely a spectacle that is worth seeing But from a literary perspective, the novel left much to be wanted Terada attempts to truncate a multitude of the King s adventures into five to ten pages each, with little explanation for the transitions and context betwe [...]

    The art is amazing, but the story is quite lacking in my opinion As for retellings of the tale, I much preferred Monkey King and Dragon Ball, Vol 1 The Monkey King I would not recommend this particular version of the story to anyone.

    Started this, and in all honestyI could not finish it Too raunchy and scrambled for me I found the plot slightly confusing, or at least not gripping The artwork is amazing, I do love the style s justpoorly written I guess its a good graphic novel comic, I didn t hate it I don t recommend it though as a favorite

    The artwork is amazing, as expected, but unless someone knows the tale beforehand, there are things nigh on impossible to understand in the narrative.

    Reading through the many comments about how scrambled this story is, I wanted to try to clarify what the mangaka has done here This book is a gallery of short stories illustrated re imagined excerpts or events from the original Journey To The West JTTW story The early chapters particularly, seem to have been done as one shots, with something maybe approximating a back story or plot only appearing in the second half of the book Volume 2 has of a plot and goes off on some pretty weird tangents , [...]

    ppig, barock und brutal Die Reise nach Westen hat schon viele Adaptionen gesehen zuletzt im Film Forbidden Kingdom , und als Fan der Buchvorlage bin ich immer begierig darauf, neue Interpretationen dieses wunderbaren Werks zu rezipieren Hier liegt nun eine Version vor, die den Affenk nig von einer ungewohnten Seite zeigt Wird er meist als charismatisch, witzig und clever beschrieben, tauchen hier seine dunklen Seiten auf Aggressivit t, Launenhaftigkeit und Gewaltt tigkeit Schon durch die Darstel [...]

    This graphic novel is one of those that has a marmite effect If you pick it up simply as a graphic novel with no knowledge of its source material you ll be confused and possibly offended If however, you know the legend of Monkey well and have an open mind you ll see the genius in what this has done What we have are a series of non chronological scenes from journey to the west reimagined in graphic form with lashings of sex, gore and kink thrown in We have bondage nuns, nude babes turning into de [...]

    Definitely not the Masaaki Sakai version from my youth Amazing art meets chaotic storytelling, storytelling which does start to make sense some 70 or so pages in I am familiar with both Wu Cheng en s classic Chinese work Journey to the West and with the stories of Buddhism in general but I have to admit I was lost for the first half of this the odd page coalesced and made me think ah, here we go only for the story to zoom away from me again The art however spurred me on, it s amazing and reminde [...]

    Be a u ti ful artwork I picked this up mostly because of how amazing it looks I think it s a prequel of sorts to Journey To The West, albeit graphic and violent Which is great, in my mind You ll notice I said I think it s a prequel Honestly, the plot was so scattered and just not well explained that I m not really sure what this book s about Most scenes are just amazing eye candy, regardless of whether or not they make sense All that being said, it s a sexy bunch of art and great writing, marre [...]

    Journey To The West Meets Conan The Barbarian meets Berserk with a twist of SM weirdness and like, Buddhism and stuff And general depravity.I really liked it in other words Its like, twice the price of normal manga, but then, it is full colour and the jaw dropping artwork is gorgeously grotesque throughout.

    The artwork is very good but the storylines are fairly confusing to me I could hardly tell what was happening through the story cells half the time since they were so small compacted The writing was so calligrafied I was barely able to read it half the time.

    Anthony
    I got this one for the art and I m glad I did the story itself is for a lack of better word, confusing, until you read the afterword but even then, the story comes from a 2 thousand something pages book, the manga should have been extended in order to tell a compelling story.

    Joe
    stupid.

    Weird, and nigh incomprehensible if you don t already know the story it s based on The artwork is lovely, but violent than my taste YMMV.

    Elias Huber
    The full version of this story has 100 books and some authors have considered this story on par with such classics as the Tao Te Ching.

    Jp
    GREAT visuals The story is all over the place though Dont try it if you dont know the original story.

    Centauri
    sometimes it was a bit difficult to follow the illustration action but it is a very interesting story and it makes me want to investigate study the lore with detail

    Colin
    Amazing Gorgeous I don t have the superlatives to do it justice An absolute must have for any graphic novel fans.

    Andrew
    A fully painted and confusing version of Journey to the West Wonder when he ll finally finish volume 2
