Tomorrow (Sunday, 11/15/09) brings us AMC’s update of The Prisoner, starring Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen…so, nice timing for this short post on DC’s Prisoner sequel from late ’88 / early ’89, written and illustrated by Dean Motter.
I remember some sharply designed DC house ads for this four-issue mini, but thought to myself, “What the hell is The Prisoner?” Then I guess I read somewhere that it was a cult British TV show from the late ’60s, and DC secured the rights for a sequel / continuation of sorts in comic book form. If anything, it was a beautiful showcase for Dean Motter’s design work!
