    Prophet is definitely a title to watch, and will likely be something worth remembering. Read Full Review

    I'm sure that there are a lot of comic readers today likemyself that never got into the Extreme line of books and only remember CaptainAmerican Fighting American. Though I hate Liefeld's art if he really played ahand in creating this world then hey" good for us right? Good in the way thatsomeone else saw its potential and delivered a fantastic story which isprobably one of the best of the week. So give Liefeld some money because thisis actually worth it.

    Though technically not a lot happens, Prophet takes its time to show readers the world that John Prophet inhabits and how difficult it will be to complete his mission there. There is clearly a lot of talent and creativity in this issue, with surely more to come. Prophet could be something really special. Read Full Review

    "Prophet" #21 fills me with great hope for all of the Extreme Studios titles being re-launched this year. If they're even half as good as "Prophet," then we're in for a treat. And even if they're not? Well, we've still got "Prophet," and I am most definitely coming back for another issue. Read Full Review

    I loved this book. I may have never read a Prophet book before, but I feel like I didn't need to. This is the coolest science-fiction comic I've read in a long time, and I loved the story and the design of the book. I was confused about why this series starts on issue 21 and not #1, and the colors of the book sometimes became muddled and it was hard to know what I was looking at. I highly recommend this story.

    This one clobbered me over the head. Weird science fiction with a big W. This one's gonna keep me warm in the absence of Orc Stain, and I'm pretty excited about the roster of artists set to guest on the book. Ignore the number on the cover and get ready to ride out the beginning of the world's end. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jan 22, 2012

    Still, there remains an unrestrained quality in Graham's plot, but rather than something goofy or whimsical, it's a savagery the title character exhibits. He's disciplined and directed, but when it's called for, he's brutal as well. While some of Graham's past projects have included darker elements, this is a departure, and it's interesting it see Graham explore new territory. His ability to build unimaginable new worlds is more than enough to keep me coming back for more, and Simon Roy's skill at delineating and defining Graham's definition-defining imagination just adds to the appeal of this basically new title.

    Little is known about Prophet the man by the end of the first issue -- a deeply disconcerting problem. This series has been out of print for nearly two decades, so readers need a refresher on what this man is like. If his character was developed as much as the world, then readers would be in for a treat. As of now, he has had only interacted with a cloaked alien (with hooked claws for digits and a slit for a face) who wants to mate with him. He does, and so we learn at least one thing about him: he sure is lonely. Read Full Review
