Image Comics announced Liefeld would be celebrating the 30th anniversary of John Prophet, a character who first appeared in Youngblood #2, with a newly remastered version of Prophet #1. Prophet Remastered #1 comes from Liefeld and a number of other talented artists, including Philip Tan, Kenneth Rocafort, Clay Mann, Viktor Bogdanovic, V. Ken Marion, Marat Mychaels, Dan Fraga, Karl Altstaetter, Dan Panosian, Cory Hamscher, Thomas Hedglen, Tom Scioli, Jim Rugg, Ed Piskor, Robert Willis, Raymond Leonard, Ale Garza and Ryan Kincaid.

“Whenever I set out to create any project, I have great expectations and I work super-hard to make sure that those expectations are met,” Liefeld previously said. “With Prophet Remastered #1, expectations were exceeded 100 times over! In order to bring some fresh excitement to Prophet, I reached out to a wide field of talented artists, many I didn’t know and had never worked with, all of whom, turns out, were humongous Prophet fans! Every single artist that contributed turned in work that went above and beyond! Several of them told me how excited that they were re-creating pages for a comic book that meant so much to them in their youth! It soared way past my wildest dreams! This comic is a beautiful tribute to the Prophet pantheon of comics! Fans are in for a real treat with this Remastered edition!”

Quesada and Palmiotti worked together on a number of past Marvel projects. The two artists co-founded Event Comics together in 1994, which published Daredevil, Black Panther, The Punisher and The Inhumans runs under the Marvel Knights imprint. The two also created the Ash series for Event Comics, along with many other titles over the years.

Quesada, Marvel’s former chief creative officer, announced he was stepping away from the publisher in May. At the time, he teased there were a number of upcoming projects he’s been working on that fans will hear about in the coming months, including a short independent film he’s writing and directing. “This doesn’t mean you’re getting rid of me that easily,” he said when announcing his departure from Marvel. “I won’t ever be too far away, cheering my Marvel family on and contributing from time to time, including something I’m thrilled about for later this year.”

Prophet Remastered #1 releases July 20 from Image.
