Naturally as this is written by Peter Milligan, I'm reading it so that means you better keep your eyes peeled for an interview with Mr Milligan on my Youtube Channel next week. For now you all will have to be content to watch the series trailer released by Titan until you hit your local comic book shop.
The original television series was sold and marketed as a spy thriller but was heralded for it's counter-cultural themes and surrealist setting. The physiological drama which combined elements of science fiction focused on a spy's imprisonment within a small village resort where people were known only as numbers. Milligan's story takes an updated approach and launches us further into the future rather than the past. How far into the future we cannot be sure as we follow an operative named Breen in the 21st Century, where global currency is no longer oil or gold. Information is now the source of all power.
Issue one of THE PRISONER is in stores today so don't think I'm going to be including any spoilers in this article! I feel I've already told you too much!! You're going to have to hit your local store to see what direction this story goes but I know you will not be disappointed.
