A graphic novel sequel to The Prisoner, published 20 years later. The Village has been closed for years, but a former Number Two exposes many of its secrets in a Spycatcher-like memoir. Meanwhile Alice Drake, an agent on a sailing holiday from a failing marriage, gets shipwrecked in this place with very weird architecture....

I generally liked Shattered Visage. It is very true to the original TV series visually and psychologically; the characters are beautifully drawn and entirely recognisable. I was a bit disappointed with the ending which felt both rushed and inconclusive. But basically this is a worthy addition to Prisoner canon.

I got the first part of this when it came out in (I think it was released as either a 4- or 6-parter) and I remember quite liking it, but I could never find the other parts, and I have to admit that up until now I'd actually forgotten about it! I may just have to scout Amazon or Ebay now...

Alice Drake. I wondered at the time, and I'm still wondering, is that some sort of clue? ;)

More a reference than a clue. Drake obviously refers to John Drake aka Danger Man, and Alice equally obviously as in Wonderland; but no explicit connection is made in the story.
