‘Prophet’: The Barbarian Space Opera

‘Prophet’: The Barbarian Space Opera You Should Already Be Reading – ComicsAlliance | Comic book culture, news, humor, commentary, and reviews.

I saw this headline the other day and scoffed. Prophet? Prophet was created by Rob Liefeld. Rob – fucking no feet – Liefeld. What could possibly going on in the Extreme universe that I would ‘need’ to be reading? I skipped over the article and went about my day. A few hours later I was bored and scrolling around for something to do, so I wouldn’t have to be productive, and decided I would go ahead and read the article. It piqued my interest, so I downloaded the first issue of the story arch (issue 21), which is available for 2 bucks in the Comixology app.

I am now downloading issue 26. I never buy singles anymore, but I’m cruising through these and loving them. This is exactly what the comic industry needs. Something different. Something that doesn’t rely on huge crossovers and a latex fetish.

The stories aren’t mind blowing, but they are entertaining and the art is wonderful. If you have a few bucks to spare and some tasks you’d rather procrastinate – well, I’d recommend picking these books up!
