Surreal the Monkey King
Cong Li didn't ask for any of this. But then again, every descendent of the legendary warrior Sun Wukong didn't either. Since as far as man can remember, there has always been a Monkey King. And when he passes a new one is born. Each incarnation of the Monkey King has always been of Chinese descent. Cong is the first incarnation of the Monkey King that wasn't born in China. Instead, Cong was born and raised in China Town, San Francisco. An old school hip-hop head, Surreal brings a light heart and fun to the team.

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter and this is a brand new experience for me. However this comic has been in my brain for years and I am determined and dedicated to bring it to life and deliver some of the best comics you've ever read. Me and Eli have spent hours going over this issue and are motivated to deliver a great product. But like life nothing is free!!! We all have bills and mouths to feed so in order for me to bring this to life I have to pay my fellow creators! And since this is new to me I will do my best to keep up communication with everyone who helps contribute. Thank you again!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
