Celebrating Rob Liefeld’s ‘Prophet’ 30th Anniversary With New Facsimile Edition
by Olly MacNamee
This coming February marks the the 30th anniversary of Prophet #1 and Image Comics plan to celebrate with a facsimile edition of Prophet #1 by Rob Liefeld with art by Dan Panosian.
“Readers new and old will be treated to this re-mastered edition of the story—this is the issue that started it all! The popular John Prophet character first debuted in 1992 in the pages of Youngblood #2, written and drawn by Liefeld. Prophet quickly skyrocketed in popularity and Liefeld teamed with Panosian to spin the character out into his own series—Prophet—shortly thereafter.”
“Prophet is symbolic of the early ’90s Image Comics that fans identify with and love—just as much as anything released during that period—and is a series that electrified a generation of comic fans! Prophet is my best selling solo hero series by a mile. I’m excited to celebrate Image’s 30th Anniversary by producing both the Prophet #1 Facsimile Edition that replicates the launch issue so a new generation of fans can experience the excitement.” – Rob Lefield
The Prophet #1 Facsimile Edition will be available Wednesday, February 9th, 2022.
