5.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi Paradise, 31 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Story with excellent art., 27 Dec. 2012

what can I say about echo that has not already been said? probably not much, but I'm more than happy to join the discussion.

Terry Moore should be a recognized name inside and outside of comics because frankly he can tell story's better than Joss Whedon; and when you stop to think about what Mr, Whedon can do that is pretty incredible.

The banter is organic, Characters have hidden depth that reward multiple read-through's, the design and its unifying aesthetic is so good you will draw yourself into the story without even noticing.

Anything else would be a spoiler.
so yes, go read this story.
It is well worth your time.
