    Image has a hot one here! Unless you are slavishly devoted to "superheroes only" or cannot enjoy a comic without photorealistic art, I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this comic. Read Full Review

    Amidst the critical acclaim of "Prophet" #21, some wondered if the issue was praised so heavily because it's wasn't a superhero comic. This issue clearly demonstrates the praise was merited because "Prophet" is a very good science fiction comic. Graham and Roy use familiar tropes and ideas as a base for much of what they do but how they build upon them and create a full and complex, unique world is astonishing. There's something new and exciting on every page, a rarity in comics. Read Full Review

    Simon Roy has the task of keeping a desert caravan visually interesting, something I suspect no penciler would find easy. Roy keeps the issue interesting with a variety of layouts and a new visual take on the aliens John is encountering. These are not typical ‘alien species' that we see in other comics, this caravan is a bizarre place and Roy takes that concept and runs wild with it. The detail in the caravan is superb and while there were times I had no idea what I was looking at, I found myself investigating to find out what it was due to my increased fascination for where this creative team had put John. Prophet appears to be in very strong creative hands and I look forward to finding out what happens to John next. If there is one thing this issue and Extreme re-launch has taught me it is to expect the unexpected. Read Full Review

    Prophet has been very successful since the Extreme line re-launched and deservedly so. I know that Simon Roy is taking a break from the art for a few issues, but with the ending of this issue being so strong Prophet should continue to be an excellent comic book. Read Full Review
