COMIC-CON: New Prisoner Comic Book

You can't walk into the Convention Center here in San Diego without having free Prisoner comics thrust at you by people dressed in classic Village attire--the Sixties kind, not the new kind. The comic, however, is firmly tied in with AMC's Prisoner remake series debuting this fall. It's a short introduction to the series published by Marvel. And you don't even have to be here at Comic-Con to read it! You can download a free PDF from AMCTV.com. The cover depitcts Ian McKellen as Number Two and Jim Caviezel as Number Six... or just "Six" as they appear to be calling him this time out. (Boo.) It also shows Rover, still looking the same (yay!) and for some reason unexplained within, some pigs. (Or possibly people wearing pig masks.) The back cover is a rather awesome photo-based advertisement for the show featuring the two leads and Rover. The Prisoner panel is tomorrow.

Any chance you could grab a couple extra of those for those of us not fortunate enough to attend the con?
