“Marz, Geovani, and Lucas are doing everything right, from huge stakes to gorgeous art and a sense that anything’s possible." - Newsarama

“This book is the perfect example of how a crossover book doesn't have to be just for dedicated fans. Anyone can pick up, read, and enjoy Prophecy. Walter Geovani keeps each page fresh with his art by mixing up the composition and layouts, and on top of that, the art looks pretty and sets a great tone.” - Comicvine
