On sale this week from Image Comics is Prophet #23, continuing the hit science fiction saga by Brandon Graham and Simon Roy & Richard Ballermann, which is among the best received new comics in recent memory. Based on the character created by Rob Liefeld, the story follows John Prophet, a man who wakes up in Earth of the distant future full of all kinds of strange aliens and deadly wildlife, with a mission to restore the planet to humanity. Issue #23 finds Prophet practically within reach of his goal... all he has to do is climb a mountain as high as Earth's lower atmosphere while doding the sorts of gruesome monsters and infernal alien machinery that have plagued his quest so far. Not to mention the hunter hot on his heals.

Check out a preview after the cut, along with the full cover by Farel Dalrymple.
