The Prisoner #1

   As a fan of the original TV series, anytime there's a project based on The Prisoner, I'm happy to sign on for it.

   The original series was centered around a spy who had a (shall we say) disagreement with his agency. He was kidnapped and found himself trapped in The Village, an odd, rather quaint town loaded with mysteries, mind games and a terribly efficient jailer.

   This version of the series follows a different version of the template, with a bit more heart and equal dollops of mystery. 

   Writer Peter Mulligan crafts a solid, cerebral start to the series, and artist Colin Lorimer creates evocative, real-world images that don't mirror the show, but create their own reality.

   It's an excellent start to the series - if you're a fan of the show (like all right-thinking people), you'll enjoy this.

Grade: A-
