A rock at the top of Spring Mountain, having absorbed all the energy of heaven and earth, gives birth to a stone monkey. Spring Mountain is sort of a monkey paradise. The other monkeys think the stone monkey is pretty cool. They give him food and adopt him as one of their own. Pursuing an ancient legend, the stone monkey discovers a hidden treasure-filled shelter where all the monkeys can live. He becomes king of the monkeys and rules benignly, presiding over monkey parties for the next two hundred years. When an old monkey dies, the stone monkey begins a search for the secret of eternal life. He becomes a disciple of Master Puti, who christens him Sun Wu Kong. Kong learns a good bit of wizardry while remaining an impetuous monkey. When he returns home after years of training, he finds that Spring Mountain has been seized by the Evil King. What will Sun Wu Kong do?

The Monkey King series retells an ancient Chinese legend so of course it teaches lessons, the greatest of which is: Don't be a bad monkey! In other words, don't be prideful and boastful, and don't use your magic powers to cheese off the rulers of the other realms. Whether the stone monkey will ever learn these lessons is doubtful, nor is it clear that he needs to, given his unique status as a being created from energy. Talk about a force of nature! Volume 1 ends with a cliffhanger, so readers will need to wait for volume 2 to discover whether the stone monkey can be defeated, or at least humbled.

The writing style is crisp. Humor pervades the story (as you might expect in a story about monkeys). The art is perfect for the story. Sometimes the art looks like it early computer graphics, in a time when too few pixels produced fuzzy images. Other times it is sharp and clear.
