The Prisoner (1988)

Posted on Updated on

The Prisoner: Shattered Visage is a four-issue mini-series published in 1988 and based on The Prisoner, the 1967 television series starring Patrick McGoohan. The name is a reference to Percy Shelley‘s famous poem Ozymandias, which forms part of the introduction.

Set twenty years after the final episode of the television series, Shattered Visage follows former secret agent Alice Drake as she is shipwrecked on the shores of the Village and encounters an aged, psychologically scarred Number Six. While the decades-old conflict unfolds between Six and Number Two (as played by Leo McKern in the TV series), secret agents in London have their own plans regarding the intelligence mine that is The Village, as well as the secret lying at its very core.
