Titan to Publish Lost Jack Kirby and Gil Kane Prisoner Comic

Titan Comics has announced two new projects based on The Prisoner, licensed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the surreal 1960’s cult TV classic in 2018: an oversized artist edition of a lost comic book classic by comic book legends Jack Kirby and Gil Kane; as well as a brand-new comic series set in the world of The Prisoner by celebrated writer Peter Milligan and artist Colin Lorimer.

First shown on Canadian and UK TV screens in 1967, The Prisoner was co-created, written, directed and starred Patrick McGoohan. Titan’s new unmissable comic collections and comic series are set to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the first US transmission in 1968.

In July, Titan Comics will publish an art-sized, hardcover collection of Jack Kirby, Gil Kane and Steve Englehart’s long-lost, previously unpublished The Prisoner comic strips based on the cult classic.

This special oversized collectors edition will contain the entire 17 page Jack Kirby strip, the first six pages of which were inked and lettered by Mike Royer, as well as 18 pages of pencils drawn by legendary comic artist Gil Kane.

In addition to reprinting these rare pages, this collection also features unmissable bonus archive material including facsimiles of the original script as written by Steve Englehart.
