Marvel Releases Free Prisoner Comic Preview

Hoping to build a comic fan base for the AMC television series, Marvel Comics has released a free digital preview of their tie-in comic about the remake of the classic television show, The Prisoner.

The comic was unveiled at San Diego’s ComicCon, along with that long video preview of the upcoming television show. As GalleyCat noted earlier this year, we’d love to see a reprint of Thomas M. Disch‘s novel based on the original miniseries, seemingly scripted by Franz Kafka and shot by Federico Fellini.

Click here to view a PDF version of the comic. Here’s more from the release: “The comic features the likenesses of Ian McKellen and Jim Caviezel, and provides an illustrated first-look at scenes based on the premiere episode which airs in November. The Prisoner AMC/Marvel Comic features art by Sao Paulo graphic artist Amilcar Pinna, color by Chris Sotomayor (who did titles for Captain Marvel, vol. 4; Avengers, vol. 3; Incredible Hulk and Fantastic Four), and lettering/production by Chris Eliopoulos (Savage Dragon series).” (Via Mike Cane)
