On sale now from Dark Horse is a hardcover collection of Sabertooth Swordsman by Damon Gentry (Eerie) and Aaron Conley (Prophet), a story that ComicsAlliance's Chris Sims praised as "a big, sweeping adventure with new, strange twists" and "one of the most fun comics I’ve read in a long while."
Prophet's success can be measured not just in awards and critical acclaim, but in the way other creators have praised it. No matter who your favorite writer or artist is, there's a good chance that Prophet, Image's sci-fi series written by Brandon Graham and illustrated by the team of Simon Roy, Giannis Milonogiannis, Farel Dalrymple and Graham, ranks among her or his favorite current titles. So it's no surprise that Prophet #39 features artistic contributions from the likes of James Stokoe, Ron Wimberly, Helen Maier and more.
Image Comics has provided ComicsAlliance with a six page preview of Prophet #39,as well as a teaser image highlighting the group of artists who contributed to the issue, and you can check them all out below.
High concept books can be a pretty mixed bag. It's one thing to come up with one of those compelling, bizarre premises that grab the reader's attention, but if the substance isn't there to back it up -- or even if it's done in the wrong tone -- they fall flatter than just about anything else you'll find on the shelves. When they work, though, the results can be pretty amazing, and fortunately, Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley's Sabertooth Swordsman is definitely the kind that hits.
