Looks like issue #1 of Red Prophet is due to be in stores this March. Here's a press release (which may eventually make it to the Hatrack front page).

For those interested, you can locate an appropriate retail store near you here, and can reserve a copy by bringing this form (though I presume you must, you know, fill it out first). The reserve deadline is Friday.

Before the question is asked, I've heard that OSC preferred that Red Prophet rather than Seventh Son be done first. I didn't hear that from him, though, so who knows.

While Red Prophet might be my least favorite of the Alvin Maker books, I am still interested in this. I think its really cool that Alvin Maker is going to be in comics! Hope we see more Alvin Maker comics after this too! Also: I'd love to see Speaker For the Dead as a comic! Though Ender's Game or Ender's Shadow might be better suited. Hmm. I don't know.

Too bad OSC isn't writing this though. I hope the person writing this does Red Prophet justice (ditto for the artist). Ya, it might be my least favorite, but there are elements of the book that are really good.

If I have the money in March, I'll try to check this out.

Papa, you're second link isn't working for me. Is it just a comic shop locator?

Gah. I still haven't reread Red Prophet (that sounds so awkward...). Not because I love it, but because it's so incredibly graphic (Har!) that I just can't take it. So I will be avoiding this comic for rather the same reason that I avoid exposing myself to Saving Private Ryan again: too scary, too raw, too painful.

Yes, that's what it is (was). It worked for me earlier this morning, but now stopped for me as well. Anyway, info is now on the front page of Hatrack.

Dabel Brothers have done some great work in the past, and together with the artist they've got lined up for this magazine, it looks like they're going to do it again. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Excellent [Evil] Don't know why that warrants an evil smile. I guess so you'll know I'm sincere.

Red Prophet is my favorite so far, in the series. Of course, its as far as I've gotten because I don't own the other ones and my town's library is stupid.

After Red Propeht is Prentice Alvin, Alvin Journeyman, Heartfire and Crystal City. All are excellent reads. I am currently rereading for 3rd or 4th time. I'm glad that they are getting an alternate media source, but afraid that they will inevitably be a let down, just as movie's based on novels are inevitably let downs. Here's hoping though.

I loved Red Prophet. Other than the scene at the end I don't remember much being graphic.

I think it would be incredible if Alex Ross did a painted of Alvin et al. Any possibility of this?

For a second I thought you said "Bob Ross". And I was like, "No, he's dead."

I don't know about the rest of you, but I for one am extremely glad that "poopsie" has finally shown up and shared with us his or her completely original and obviously well-reasoned opinion, shining the bright light of civilized discourse on us poor misguided fools like a beacon of hope to lead us out of our backwards ways, darkened as we are by the ever-present cloud of barbarianism and close-mindedness that our favorite author espouses.

Why, with poopsie's totally warranted and quite pleasantly-worded, nay, eloquent defense of an opinion that is intrinsically, inseparably related to the thread subject, I'd be hard pressed to find anyone who isn't moved to tears by the sheer poetical loveliness of the beauty of a thought-provoking argument well-formed.
