THE PRISONER MARKS 50THÂ ANNIVERSARY WITH ALL-NEW COMIC BOOKS!
Titan Comics to publish all-new comic books to celebrate the 50thÂ Anniversary of classic cult phenomenonÂ The Prisoner!
(October 2017) â€“ To celebrate the first UK broadcast of celebrated cult favourite The Prisoner, Titan Comics – licensed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment – are pleased to announce an all-new comic books based on the original TV show written by Peter Milligan (The Mummy, Dan Dare, Hellblazer) with art by Colin Lorimer (The X-Files, Hellraiser, Harvest) coming in 2018!
The Prisoner first aired on ITV in the United Kingdom on 29 September 1967 â€“ and in 1968 in the US – and was an immediate smash hit with global audiences due to its surreal mix of spy fiction with sci-fi, allegory and psychological drama elements.
The worldwide smash hit series starred Patrick MacGoohan (Danger Man, Escape from Alcatraz) as Number 6 â€“ the fiery British former secret agent who is abducted and held prisoner in a shadowy coastal village, where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job.
â€œFor a story where all is ambiguous, itâ€™s hardly surprising that everyone takes from The Prisoner something different; like most people I had my own theories, my own twisted notions â€“ mostly Kafkaesque and existential – of what was really going on in those mock Italianate dwellings. Personally the stranger and more baffling it was the better it suited me,â€ said Peter Milligan writer of the new re-imagined comic books. â€œSo what an honor it is now, thanks to Titan Comics, to be writing Number 6â€™s successor into that enigmatic and beguiling world. And how cool it is to imagine that while Iâ€™m writing this new iteration of the Prisoner, I am at least for a while… number one.â€
Titanâ€™s The Prisoner hits stores in 2018, and will be available to pre-order from an upcoming edition of Diamond PREVIEWS. Register your interest with your local comics retailer now!
