Cult classic The Prisoner has been captivating audiences and firing imaginations since it first aired in the UK in 1967 and in the US the following year. Now fans can go even deeper into The Village with this official graphic novel sequel set twenty years after the events of the iconic TV series.

Originally published in 1988, Shattered Visage tells the story of former secret agent Alice Drake, whose round-the-world solo voyage is interrupted when she is accidentally shipwrecked and washes up on the shores of The Village. There she encounters Number Six, finds out what has become of Number Two, and discovers the true purpose of The Village.

Titan Comics will release this long out-of-print classic with new material, including character sketches and notes from writer/artist Dean Motter . Fans can finally get their hands on the unmissable next chapter in The Prisoner saga for the first time in years.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Top Pick: The Mighty Thor #706 (Marvel) – As if #705 wasn’t epic and sad enough, let’s deal with even more sad. Bash Marvel all you want for wanting a male Thor, I love Odinson too, but this was consistently one of their best titles, and Jane has been an incredible, worthy, and Mighty Thor!

The Despicable Deadpool #299 (Marvel) – We are almost to the end of a great character redefining run. Deadpool has always been fun, but Duggan has been killing it on this title for years. He will be missed, and I can’t wait to see how this ends.

The Hunt for Wolverine #1 (Marvel) – I get that killing characters off and bringing them back is so comics, especially at Marvel the last few years. However, this is Wolverine. This is Logan. This is the little kid in me cheering loudly. Leave my boy alone, Marvel! I am hyped.

Avengers #690 (Marvel) – What a ride it’s been! I’m excited to see how they wrap all of this up and set up the characters for the multiple upcoming new #1s!

Kill or Be Killed #18 (Image) – This is such a great story that breaks the medium of comics. A fantastic modern take on pulp crime by the masters of that art form.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #19 (Marvel) – Fun. That’s what this series is to me with each issue feeling like Indiana Jones in space, just starring a lesbian woman. The twists and turns are entertaining and you never know how Aphra is going to get out of a situation, or what trouble she’ll cause. Pure entertainment with each issue.

Abbott #4 (BOOM! Studios) – A solid read, each issue has a gritty sense about it and the setting has been fantastic.

Black [AF]: Widows & Orphans #1 (Black Mask Studios) – A new entry in the world of Black, I want to see what direction this series goes.

Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. #2 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The best of the Young Animal series, this one shook things up by taking us to an alternate Gotham. We’re still trying to figure out what that all means.

The Prisoner #1 (Titan Comics) – The classic television series comes to comics!

In the 21st Century, the global currency is no longer oil or gold but information. And he who possesses it possesses the world. There is one place on the planet where the most valuable information is mined, a place that prides itself on ‘mental fracking’, promising to extract any secret from any individual using any means possible.

It is perhaps the intelligence community’s darkest secret, aligned to no one political system or state, an autonomous institute, free of state manipulation. The identity of its controller, the mysterious Number One, is unknown. It is a place so secret, some believe it to be a myth. It is The Village.
