Faithful followers of the enigmatic '60s cult show starring Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner, will be pedaling to their nearest comic shop when Titan Comics' new mini-series rolls out in the real world this Spring.
Written by Peter Milligan (X-Statix, The Mummy) and matched with art by Colin Lorimer (The Hunt, Harvest), The Prisoner will delve into the cryptic realm of The Village and try to extract clandestine info from its odd residents, inmates, and administrators.
Titan paraded out the latest look at their nostalgic Prisoner project at the ComicsPRO trade show event in Portland this weekend and it's primed to give up a taste of its myriad secrets to conspiracy fans worldwide. In addition to the covers and interior art offered up, Titan also debuted a new trailer that captures the weird mystery vibe of this seminal British spy-fi show that first aired in America back in 1968.
Here's the official solicitation synopsis:
First shown on Canadian and UK TV screens in 1967, The Prisoner was co-created, written, directed and starred Patrick McGoohan (Scanners, Braveheart). Titan’s new unmissable comic collections and comic series are set to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the first US transmission in 1968. Titan Comics’ new series transports readers back to the mysterious village where everyone is a number, and features six amazing covers, including Mike and Laura Allred, Jack Kirby, Patrick McGoohan photo cover and more.
Interest in the iconic property has been resurrected since Ridley Scott attached himself to a feature film adaptation of the classic 17-episode series back in 2016. McGoohan helped create and write the original show and portrayed Number 6, a retired Cold War superspy imprisoned in a surreal Orwellian community where his sanity and existence were challenged around every corner.
