Rob Liefeld has revealed plans to revive his creator-owned character Prophet in 2020. On his Facebook page, the writer/artist has revealed plans to bring back the character's series - and celebrate a milestone issue: #50.
"Oh man, 2020 is going to really pick up steam for JOHN PROPHET!" Liefeld wrote. "His 50th issue is incoming and it is loaded with goodies! I read an outline for the feature film before the holidays and I’m thrilled at what’s in store. This one is full speed ahead! His 27th year will be his most exciting to date. Check back Monday for details!"
It's unclear how Liefeld came up with the Prophet title hitting the 50-issue mark. The last ongoing ended at #45 - but the story was continued in a seperate six-issue series.
The movie Liefeld is referring to one in development with Studio 8, who produced White Boy Rick. That shingle picked up the film rights to Prophet back in 2018.
