Format: Paperback
It is quite safe to say that I have never read anything quite like Prophet before! It is the most unique, mind-boggling comicbook 'trip' I have ever taken!

Brandom Graham (along with his co-creators) has crafted a sciene fiction masterpiece which can easily sit inside the pages of Metal Hurlant.

The story starts on a future earth changed my alien influence and time. We see a strange creature stalking the arid wasteland's for food. Suddenly a digger like object emerges through the ground. Inside it is John Prophet (who is one of several clones) and he is tasked with climbing the towers of Thauili Van and re-starting the Earth Empire via contact with the G.O.D satelite.

On his way there he meets a wide array of weird and bizarre alien creatures who have taken residence on earth. The comic is short on character dialogue for the first issue, it is up to us to us the reader to discover these strange places, much like our protagonist. Some of John's encounter's are quite funny, like his strange encounter with the 'Vagina Chicken'! Or his time on the Taxa Caravan's. These characters play an important role in John Prophet's quest. Most of them look like creatures that failed their audition for Star Wars and ended up on a cool science-fiction comic! And all the better for it!

The book features artwork from Simon Roy (chapters 1-3), Farel Dalrymple (chapter 4), Brandom Graham (chapter 5), and Giannis Milonogiannnis (chapter 6) along with Emma Rios who is on writinng and drawing duties for a short at the end entitled 'Coil: a clone story'. My favourite of the mentioned artists has to be Simon Roy's work on the opening three chapters. His artwork is very evocative of Guy Davis' work and absolutely beautiful to behold.

Words like EPIC and LEGENDARY get thrown around a lot; so I'll try something else.

Prophet is a love letter to all fans of grand science fiction, if you find that the genre is all to often oversimplified and narrow in focus (take the de-evolution of star trek for example); this reads like Issac Asimov in return to Oz.

If I had to some it up, I would say it reads like a character study dripping in ideas and scope.

This is simply more grand than a TV series and higher in concept than a movie. Comics feel like the best place to tell and indeed show this kind of story.

I eagerly await the next Volume.

Dammit, I was looking forward to this one! "Prophet" looks different and mysterious and it's an Image book and it's nominated for an Eisner - I was so prepared to love this book, and it ended up disappointing me. To say "Prophet" is an incoherent book is to presume it was trying to say something to start with and I'm not sure that it was. The authorial touch is so light it feels like you're not so much reading a book as you are glimpsing some strange images through a rain-streaked window at a murky puddle in the street.

Based upon a 90s comic from the fascinating mind of Rob "What's better than a sword? A sword with a GUN attached!" Liefeld, I had never read or was even aware of this series before this book. It is labelled Volume 1 though it collects issues #21-26 and no effort is made on catching the reader up with what came before it. You sink or you swim.

Some kind of tunnelling device pops out of the ground and out of it tumbles a man in a kind of space suit. He emerges onto what looks like an alien planet and begins killing random alien creatures to eat, for survival, whatever - he's been asleep a long time for some reason and has emerged for some reason to do something for some reason. Clones are involved on numerous planets in the universe. Some kind of quest. Aliens. That's about all I got from this book.

Maybe this kind of schlocky spacey weirdness is right up your alley if sci-fi is your bag but I haven't been much interested in sci-fi since I was a kid who enjoyed Frank Herbert's Dune and Asimov's Foundation.

Format: Paperback
This book is possibly the best sci-fi comic to grace my shelves. It is fantastically imaginative space opera from a previous era. The strange alien wonder reminds me of Cordwainer Smith, but the pacing is more suitable to modern writing. This is an epic in the making. Please buy it so they'll keep writing more of it!

I picked up 'Prophet' as a gamble and was not disappointed... but my praise is based almost solely on the first three-chapter 'arc' in this collection. This is terrific original stuff and I'd defy any sci-fi or fantasy fan not to be impressed by the original world building here- fans of MAR Barker will see a few similarities. Great art- I can see how others have drawn parallels with Moebius. I'd have preferred an extended run of this arc- especially as the rest of the collection becomes increasingly left field. Not to run down the remainder- but It simply didn't fire my imagination to the same degree. Five stars for the first three chapters- two for the rest.
Despite my misgivings, it's still great to see a creator trying to try something different and original.
