EXCL: Millar Unveils Grampa's Prodigy Variant Cover with Issue #3 Preview

Millarworld has revealed artist Rafael Grampa's new variant cover for writer Mark Millar and artist Rafael Albuquerque's new Netflix comic, Prodigy. The Issue #4 cover finds the title's star Edison Crane in his signature black dress suit reading a book in one hand, with the other holding a smoking handgun.

Along with the variant cover comes a preview of Prodigy #3 featuring Edison Crane and a blonde woman fighting a gang of enemies atop a speeding train. The fight soon comes to an end, however, when the train derails, sending itself, passengers and cargo spiraling down a cliff to their doom.

"I gave myself a challenge when I created Prodigy. I wanted to write the smartest thing I’ve ever written and at the same time top any action set-pieces I’ve ever managed in the past and I honestly couldn’t be happier with how this has turned out," explained Millar, President and Chief Creative Officer of Millarworld, a subsidiary of Netflix. "Edison Crane is by far the best character I’ve created in my career and I’m delighted that my genius friend Rafa Albuquerque is drawing the comic-book side of all this. He’s really one of the best artists in the world. I can’t wait to share this with everyone. This really is a beaut and we’re incredibly proud of it."
