One of the early success stories of 2012 in comics so far has been Prophet from Image Comics. Brandon Graham and Simon Roy’s Prophet #21 has been one of the most universally well received launches that I’ve seen in years. Their man out of time/sci-fi take seems to have hit a nerve with comics fans and they’re not letting up.
Earlier today Image Comics publisher Eric Stephenson posted a preview of Prophet #22 on his blog. Here’s what he had to say:
Prophet #22 is barreling to finer comic book shops everywhere in a few short weeks, and it’s actually better than Brandon Graham and Simon Roy’s first issue.I could rattle off a list of reasons why, but since Simon decided to do a new cover for this issue that no one’s seen yet, I figured I’d let that and a few of the pages speak for themselves.
After seeing the cover (to the right) and the interior pages provided, I have to admit that these pages do speak for themselves.
Prophet #22 hits comic stores, coincidentally on February 22nd, 2012. If you missed issue #21, you can read it on Graphicly below and catch up.
