You know, I was saving this issue for one rainy day. Unfortunately, it had to be for this. As some you y’all might know, Prince suddenly passed away last week. It was a bit of a shock to me and pretty much everyone else. I’m not the biggest Prince fan out there, but I like some of his songs. I’ve listened to most of his stuff from his prime. I can say that he was really gifted musician. The guy could almost play anything and that’s really cool to me.
I found this issue during Free Comic Book Day last year. I even tweeted on it since it literally looks like one of the most random finds ever. I mean, a Prince comic book? I’m not surprised that there would be something like that out there, but seeing is believing in this case. This was done by Pirhana Music back in 1994 and was an adaptation to a video Prince released around that time. Prince and the New Power Generation was shockingly written by Dwayne McDuffie… yeah, that Dwayne McDuffie! David Williams (no relation), Steve Carr, and Deryl Skelton handled the pencils for this 48-page issue. Inks were done by long-time inker, Josef Rubinstein.
