If you’d told me a few years ago that outstanding science fiction could be spun out of a reboot of an old Rob Liefeld comic with that one guy with the swords who grimaces a lot and has padding glued to his face, the first question I’d have to ask is, "Which one guy with the swords was that? There were a couple."
The answer would be Prophet, one of the most fruitful experiments to come out of the 2012 retooling of the defunct Extreme Studios line, and one of the most genuinely enthralling sci-fi comics of the past decade.
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.

One of the most highly acclaimed comics of 2012, Image's revival of Prophet has come at a seemingly perfect time. Between books like Saga, Spaceman, and upcoming series such as Collider and Trillium, sci-fi comics have seen a bit of a renaissance over the past few years, and Prophet has certainly played a large role...
One of my favorite genres in comics is the space opera. There have obviously been great space operas in television, books, and movies, but to me there's something about the medium of comic books that makes it especially effective for the genre, particularly when in the hands of Europeans, or at least European-style artists...

Two tales, more than any others, left me really, really excited to be a reader of comics in the past month or so. One was Al Ewing and Brendan McCarthy's Zaucer of Zilk, a delightful day-glo plane crash into the deepest, glam-est jungles of optimism...
