Episode 163: Mark Millar’s PRODIGY #1 VS Kieron Gillen’s DIE #1

Welcome to the 163 episode of the Monkeys Fighting Robots podcast, this week we review PRODIGY #1 and DIE #1 (Two amazing books you should add to your pull list immediately.)

Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show.

DIE #1

Written by Kieron Gillen with art by Stephanie Hans.

THE WICKED + THE DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN teams up with artist supernova STEPHANIE HANS (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE 1831, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic! DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron’s in a rush, he describes it as “Goth Jumanji.” That only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in oversized debut issue—where fantasy gets all too real.


Written by Mark Millar with art by Rafael Albuquerque.

Edison Crane’s not content being the world’s smartest man and most successful businessman—his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He’s a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and now international governments are calling on him to fix problems they just can’t handle.

Both books hit your local comic book store on December 5.
