Why Prophet?

I've never read Rob Liefeld's original Prophet series but that doesn't matter for Brandon Grapham's epic sci fi reboot of the comic.

Set ten thousand years in the future, there are countless clones of John Prophet throughout space, allowing for infinite variations of sci fi stories to be told with the character.

With such wide scope, there is room for much more than sci fi stories, with Graham noting one of the main aims of the series was to "out 'Conan' the current run of 'Conan'"

The series seems to be greatly influenced by the European scifi found in Metal Hurlant by Moebius and Phillipe Druillet.

Prophet features an amazing lineup of talented artists including: Brandon Graham, Simon Roy, Giannis Milonogiannis, Farel Dalrymple, James Stokoe and even 2000AD's Dave Taylor.

Space has no boundaries and there are innumerous John Prophets to be discovered. Stay tuned to Thought-Balloons this week to meet a few of them.
