How To Make Comics Good

So who remembers Prophet? It was a terrible, terrible book from the 90s that pretty well encapsulated everything that was terrible about that era. Sort of impressive in that respect.

Here’s some horror to shock you into remembering. Like a nightmarish childhood, you’ve repressed this memory, but I’m making you confront it.

Fast-forward a number of years and change the creative team so completely that there’s really no connection to that old property outside of the name. You’ve got a great book. Maybe the book of 2012. All it took was totally deleting everything bad about a 99% bad book and starting over. Which is commentary on where comic readers are at now mentally: “Name I recognize? OK, that’s my only criteria for buying. I’ll take four.” But at least we get this beautiful book. Try to stay positive.
