I've read many stories containing characters created by creative powerhouse Rob Liefeld; however his early creator-owned work is a blind spot of my comic knowledge. Oddly enough the 2012 relaunch of Liefeld's Prophet is my favorite ongoing series. Now I seek to learn the origins of this stellar comic through a continuing series of posts analyzing Rob Liefeld's Prophet. Last week Prophet's genesis was examined in Youngblood #2. This week I crack open my second Extreme Studios comic from those halcyon 90's and the first issue of the Prophet solo series. Remember how I promised to be more concise? I lied.
Despite Rob Liefeld being a monolithic figure it's important to remember that he had collaborators and give them due credit. Rob shares creative duties on this issue as he is only responsible for being the creator, writer, and doing layouts as Dan Panosian (pronounced Pan-Ocean) takes up penciling and inking.
