Prophet Vol. 1: Remission

Brandon Graham, Simon Roy, Farel Dalrymple, Giannis Milogiannis

Brandon Graham is at the helm in reviving this once totally awful ’90s superhero comic, giving it a complete transformation into one of the most imaginative ongoing comics published today. Along with a diverse cast of three other amazing artists, I don’t know whether to call it sci-fi, fantasy, or just adventure, but whatever it is, its comics at its weird best.

    This is one of the best sci-fi comics i’ve read in a while. In a distant future, John Prophet awakens on an Earth ravaged by war and colonized by aliens. His mission: to awaken the glorious Earth Empire. Fantastic landscapes, intriguing alien life forms, and vivid action sequences.. i can’t wait for the next volume to come out!

    Prophet is probably the single most engaging genre adventure story I’ve ever read. The first book is a disorienting build up to… I can’t even imagine!
    New story elements seem to come as fast or faster than you can figure out what to do with them. Awesome characters and a sense of epic history make this world an imensely detailed setting that begs you to invest in figuring it all out. And figuring it out can definitly be an investment, with dream-like writing that sometimes comes through in sentence fragments sprinkled with invented terminology native only to this story. This story is a rush into unknown territory that I can’t wait to explore.
    There’s a talented cast of company putting this book together, with Brandon Graham (King City, Multiple Warheads) at the helm of the writing task, but seldom illustrating; collaborating closely with a group of three other illustrators who are all awesome! The story works with the change in art, with each artist telling the story of different characters within the same world, further building the immensity of the story.
    Totally rad!

    This was a wonderfully engaging sci-fi story. A bit trippy in atmosphere, ala Space Odyssey, which kept me interested. Because the art style varied from chapter to chapter, it was a tad hit and miss. But significantly more of the former than the latter, especially where Brandon Graham was concerned.

    I was especially pleased with the portrayal of alien diversity. It portrayed a well-fleshed-out universe.

    So rad. The imagination that went into drawing this book is just astounding.
