London’s premier comics reading group returns, this month taking a deep dive into the first volume of Prophet, Brandon Graham’s reimagining of Rob Liefeld’s 90’s creation. The group will meet Wednesday the 14th November, 7-9pm, and all are welcome!
“On distant future Earth, changed by time and alien influence, John Prophet awakes from cryosleep. His mission: to climb the towers of Thauili Van and restart the Earth empire. News of the Empire's return brings old foes and allies out of the recesses of the vast cosmos.”
Originally a fairly bulk-standard 90’s superhero, Graham’s retooling of the character pours in a heady mix of Jodorowsky and Otomo to create a character and universe that feels totally unique. Joined by an exciting roster of artists including Farel Dalrymple, Giannis Milonogiannis & Simon Roy, Graham pushes the boundaries of what you could ever believe Liefeld’s Extreme universe could be. Heck, we liked it so much we did a (now sold out) bookplate for volume one and volume two!
So come on down for some lively chat about Prophet Vol 01: Remission, and if it’s your first time reading it, don’t fret: that sensation of not having any idea what’s going on at the start is how we all came to it!
Everyone is welcome to Reads, whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth. Just come on down for a 7pm start on Wednesday November 14th. And don’t forget if you want to pick up a copy before the evening, just let us know at the till that you’re buying it for Reads and we’ll give you a 10% discount on the selected title!
