5.0 out of 5 stars Braiding the the strands 22 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This third Volume starts to really bring together the storylines hinted at in the first two installments - I appreciate the somewhat complicated hints and nods fo the series to what was clearly a catastrophic event in the past - history and narrative for the characters are being rewoven in parallel to the the story that the reader experiences - the sheer strangeness and over reaching enormity of the concepts in the story are captivating and awe-filling - I'm really enjoying both the difference and freedom employed in both the storyline and the art work.
look forward to the next.

If you've started this series here, don't, turn back, and start with one. The story is starting to come together now. This volume follows the John Prophet introduced in vol1 and Oldman Prophet in vol2. Things have changed for them, John Prophet has been elevated into a leaders role after the events of the first volume and becomes involved in the treachery and in-fighting amongst the ranks of the prophet army. Whilst Oldman prophet, having survived the events of volume 2, realises that it may not be the earth/prophet army he needs to be fighting....
The story now feels like it's going towards a coherent arc and feels as a result, well, more coherent. The 3 main prophets introduced felt like they were fighting towards different goals within the same universe and felt like the series lacked a direction. Graham has now added one and the elements introduced now feel like there going somewhere. Artwork throughout is done by different artists. There's an artist each for the two prophets and it feels strange zigzagging through and noticing the art changes page sometimes but the artists bring a certain flavour for each. Whereas John Prophet's styling is bizarre, twisted and grotesque to fit in with Graham's gene and bio-tech version of the far future; Oldman prophet's stylings feel more traditional sci-fi and dare I say, a little möbius. There's no sign of Farel Dalrymple's take on the prophet with a tail. Hopefully he pops up in future stories. Criticisms? Well it doesn't feel like traditional sci-fi. It's styled more like French sci-fi epics a la the incal. Whether you like your story to be more coherent or more imaginative, this series is more to the latter. The artwork is very much in the not a superhero style (even though, Prophet is originally a cowl and cloak book).

5.0 out of 5 stars So refreshing 2 Mar 2014
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If not for Brandon Graham, I wouldn't be reading comics anymore. I was on the cusp of giving up on them when signs indicated that I should check out Graham's revitalization of Rob Liefeld's Prophet. The reviews and commentary sounded so interesting that, despite some horrifying flashbacks to the dark days of '90s Image, I gave it a shot. Two years later, Prophet keeps me interested in the medium (for better or worse) and encourages me to check out independent publishers and titles, 'cause who knows what I might be missing?

PROPHET VOLUME 3: EMPIRE collects issues 32 and 34 - 38. The story so far, in brief: the far future Earth is occupied by various alien races, and innumerable clones of John Prophet are awakening from hibernation across the galaxy in order to reclaim it, but it appears as if the real John Prophet is walking straight down the middle with plans of his own. In Volumes 1 and 2, Graham spent plenty of time building a dense galaxy-spanning backdrop for the story - history, events, locations, characters, and the like. He set up various situations that seemed related, but it was hard to tell exactly how. With EMPIRE, artists Simon Roy and Giannis Milonigiannis join Graham on writing duties as we learn more of what has happened to the Earth, as well as humanity, over the past thousands of years, plus what the Prophets have been up to in the 11 months since the G.O.D. satellite signaled the restart of the Earth Empire. We also get a couple of excellent solo Prophet adventures. At the same time, the original Prophet seeks out more of his former companions, though they are in forms that are strikingly different from what readers may recall (if you're not familiar with Liefeld's various Extreme Studios characters, some research couldn't hurt). There's also the introduction of a threat that *could* have serious implications for the entire series, but really: with this title, who knows if a plot point will evolve into something big, or just be one of Graham's crazy one-off ideas? Having gained all of this welcome information, my perspective on the events of the previous two volumes has changed. I thought I had a pretty good idea of how everything stood up to this point, but Volume 3 reveals that some characters aren't quite so black and white.

Of course, Roy and Milonogiannis continue their sterling artwork, depicting some truly inspired, if not outright bizarre, places and things. The entire creative team works very well together, resulting in a comic that reads and looks like nothing else out there. This most recent volume continues the amazing world-building and wild adventures of the previous two, with more on the horizon.
5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, another title that I love 26 Jun 2014
By Corz - Published on Amazon.com

Prophet is one of the very few series where I genuinely can't wait for the new one to come out. Along with Saga, Locke & Key before it finished, Okko, Girl Genius, maybe a couple others. Some people are saying it's getting weaker, but it seems like the exact opposite to me. Volume 1 took a lot of work figuring out how their world works. Now it's rolling. I get the feeling Graham knows where he's going with the whole series, and the enthusiasm the collaborators have for their work is very evident. Prophet has never seemed all that "weird" to me - so I think the people who loved V.1 for that quirkiness/newness liked it for the wrong reasons. It's pretty typical epic sci-fi, definitely with a 70's vibe, and an author who has a cool vision. Graham is feeling it.

I like the sparseness of the narrative, nothing seems forced. The art is loose, not typically precise/splashy superhero style. It all suits Graham's writing, although I like his art the best of the 3-4 guys involved. The look reminds me of The Incal, with hints of Powr Mastrs. Narratively, it's a toned down, more "professional" version of Graham, if you will. As if he's deferring to a clear storyline rather than scribbling out missives. I think this actually enhances his stony vibe at times, by forcing him to introduce the more underground themes judiciously and with max effect.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem in a line of mind-bending books 17 Jun 2014

I'm a sucker for Brandon Graham, at this point. I have yet to see him do wrong.
Admittedly, his style can be challenging for those used to the more straight-forward funny-book delivery, but to fans of the medium the liberties he takes and the borders he pushes are charming and exciting.
This book is another glimpse into the bottomless pit of Graham's imagination, ably illustrated by a team of artists, and it moves the multi-galactic, scattershot story forward to a rapidly-building tension and hints at an imminent climax. It would be hopeless to try to describe the joy of this book any further than that, it defies simple summary, but believe me when I say it will be well worth your while. Just make sure you catch up on Vol's 1 and 2 beforehand, or you'll probably just be lost.
The only downside to the story is that it serves as a reminder that Graham's promised end-date for the series is fast approaching. A sad day that will be.
2.0 out of 5 stars Dull and Confusing 2 Jun 2014
By BubbaZanetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really liked the first trade paperback. The second one fell off in terms of writing, but I enjoyed it enough to get the third one. But this last one was just a hodgepodge of weird names and freaky plot twists that came off as more desperate than creative. I'm done with the series, which is a pity, because it definitely started off with real promise. It's just not interesting or compelling enough to continue with.
3.0 out of 5 stars A trippy return to the trippy SF of the late 1960s. Strange but 11 May 2014
By W. McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
'Prophet Volume 3: Empire' is a throwback to the earlier science fictional works of Michael Moorcock, Philip Jose Farmer and others of the psychedelic SF era. Which is to explain that it's pretty weird. So weird, that it's probably not for everyone, but for those nostalgic for the strange SF of the late 60s and early 70s, this might be just what you are looking for.

I'll attempt to describe it, but at times, it seemed to want to defy that for me. It is a sort of post-human age, but humans are genetically modified and all named John. They all have different functions, so they all look a bit different. Are you following this? I didn't think so. It's best to just recommend it for those who like the work of Moebius and thought the Isaac Asimov animated film Gandahar was good.

The art is a very 1970s throwback, with crumbling planets, strange alien-like humans and a strange color palette. It's trippy and strange, but I don't think it's always a bad thing to read something that doesn't completely seem to make sense. I feel that way about books, film and music. If you do too, you might check out the Prophet series.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this strange graphic novel.
