Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published in single comic book form as The prisoner : the uncertainty machine #1-4.
Created by Patrick McGoohan and George Markstein.
Summary, etc.: Based on the TV show created by Patrick McGoohan, this all-new adventure written by Peter Milligan sees Breen, codenamed No. 6, trapped in a seemingly bizarre parallel world, unlike anything he has ever experienced before. There he must race to rescue his fellow spy before he loses his very grip on reality. But to save the day, Breen must also confront the arch controller of The Village, a person known only as Number One...
Author Notes

One-time Entertainment weekly's "man of the year" Peter Milligan was at the forefront of the revolution in comics which were created for a more sophisticated, adult audience. Shade the Changing Man for Vertigo offered a skewered look at American culture, while Enigma, Face and Rogan Gosh pushed the boundaries of comic books. Milligan was the longest-running writer of Hellblazer, and his take on Human Target inspired the TV series. His latest works include the critical hit Britannia, and a retelling of the MUMMY for Hammer/Titan. Milligan has written several screenplays, including Pilgrim and An Angel for May.

Colin Lorimer has worked with Image, Dark Horse, IDW, Titan, and Boom! Studios. Co-creator of the books, HARVEST, UXB, Burning Fields, and Curse, he has also worked on The X-Files, Hellraiser, Blackout, Millennium, and Dark Horse Presents. Colin is an award-winning storyboard artist and has worked across film, animation, and gaming. He is currently working closely with the director Albert Hughes on his latest feature film The Solutrean.
