  1. This wasn’t down on the image website for release but I ain’t complaining, love, love, love this series & I will state every month when we get an issue ” this better get an Eisner ”, I will become a broken record!

    • Agreed, if there were a top 5 list of books that didn’t get enough attention… this would be on it. Great stuff!

    I initially dropped this after the first arc for some inexplicable reason. But after spending the last couple of days playing catch up on comixology I’m sort of glad I dropped it. This title benefits so much from reading it in chunks! I was really blown away by the story they are weaving and even though I don’t understand it all, nothing seams out of place or random for the sake of randomness. Just brilliant!

  3. Where did everybody go? In spite of the solicitation, Giannis Milonogiannis is the writer and artist on both main and backup stories. Once you get past page 8, the art looks more like preliminary sketches than finished work. The backup is B&W. Typically, Prophet’s good for 10-15 minutes of reading, scanning details, etc. This issue? Maybe 2. What happened? Did I miss the memo on Prophet?

    • I’m guessing it’s connected to that few months of delayed issues. This issue comes out 3 weeks after #36, right? Maybe they’re trying to catch back up.

      Graham’s talked openly about having some depression-type issues lately, but that they seem to be resolved. Maybe that figured in… Plus “Walrus” just came out (delayed a little too, but AWESOME!) & seems like it must’ve been a lot of work. Simon Roy has done a solo issue of “Prophet” before, as has Graham.

      Is it a decent story/execution, despite the format change? (Have it but haven’t read it yet.)

  4. I really, really, really rated this issue but Milonogiannis is my preferred of all the artists on this (I still love Roy, Dalrymple & Graham’s art too) totally fucking awesome series.

    Pick of the week for myself too!

  5. Yeah, I really dug it too. Had almost an “Alien” vibe, with the cavernous structures taking up most of the issue’s space. I think it was the crude coloring in places that lent to what @glea was talking about, w/ the “prelim” look. It did look a bit rushed, but it worked for me regardless.

    I am so impressed with these single-creator issues, in that the voice always sounds the same, regardless of the writer. 5/5 for me. (Maybe I need to pick up “Old City Blues” now…)

  6. This was excellent like always. I appreciated the scale of this issue. Everything looked so large compared to the single person mission of John Atum. This series has done a great job with things like this. It gave a creepiness to the issue, and I liked the ship’s defense mechanism and its comic execution. I did wish the backup was colored, though. Some of the panels could really have benefited, but the little story was still cool. Maybe they’ll color it for the trade.
