Jack Kirby’s THE PRISONER!

Jack Kirby's THE PRISONER!

You all remember when Marvel and Jack Kirby turned cult TV show The Prisoner into a comic book, don’t you? No? That isn’t surprising, this unfinished seventeen-page story was scrapped before release in late 1976. Expected to be the first in a series, it was created by Kirby and partially inked and lettered by Mike Royer, and this single episode is all that remains of Kirby’s plans for the series.
