Science fiction films, television, books, and comics are in some way inspired by our desire to explore the unknown. At the core of every Sci-Fi story is the discovery of a place or people that are strange and wholly unknown to us. The metallic monster crushing cities or the alien devouring a ship’s crew one by one kicks our imaginations into full gear. Every day we wake up, go to work, come home, and go to bed, then repeat the whole process again. We gravitate towards the bizarre and unknown because it is simply something different. Prophet is that something different we are all searching for at the end of the day. This is a comic that not only explores the unknown, but also embraces it with reckless intensity.
Each and every week “Soul Eater” MK2Fac3 and “One Piece” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 22, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
It’s kind of a small list this week with the end of one book and the start of another, with a collection of one of the best books of the year that you may have missed. MK2Fac3 is still away at Wrestling Fantasy Camp. He’s still working on the world’s most perfect figure four leg lock and he still hasn’t quite got it right yet. He is a slave to his craft and he needs all of his focus, so it’s just Henchman flying solo again. But you don’t need to hear about our respective tales of woe, you’re here for comics, and that’s what we’ve got. Let’s go.

I’ve been reading comics for a while and I am always on the lookout for something new, and that is exactly what I got with Prophet #23. Prophet is an insanely cool comic book series that features a warrior who wakes up in a strange future filled with wondrous creatures. His mission? To restart a bunch of satellites that will put the human race back into action. All he has to complete his mission is a knife, a floating robot translator, and a strange piece of clothing that adapts to his every need, even if that need is a new arm. The last two issues have introduced us to the world of Prophet, and with this issue, we start to see the bigger picture of what is going on in this series.
Each and every week “I don’t read love stories” MK2Fac3 and “All I read are love stories” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics.

So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of February 15, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
