According to Legend, The College Prophets are members of an ancient guild of fighters. Their story begins when Tommy and Rye, two violent brawlers accidentally awaken a powerful dark force in The Well That Ate Children. The well, created from the remnants of humanities inventions since the beginning of time, begins to possess the townspeople and poison their water supply. Only after their actions destroy everything they loved but for each other, they formulate a plan with the help of the other Prophets to set things right. Fighting with the wisdom of the Guild and power of their beliefs they correct their mistakes and prevent the world's demise.Written by

"Land of the College Prophets" utilizes its low budget to good effect. The saga-engrossed characters meet challenges and villains all against the constant backdrop of today's mundane culture. The College Prophets are really about imagination striking out in the middle of Coca Cola land. Their parallel universe occasionally collides with the mundane and usually the mundane loses. Mike Aransky, Phillip Guerette and Thomas Edward Seymour are to be thanked for their robust homage to every great saga comic we've seen. Watch for Russ Russo too in a standout as Jonah Joe, a purist in the world of fighting. All in all, it's an exploration of point-of-view, exclusively from inside the saga. All the rules of the world don't work anymore, only the dark laws of the land of the College Prophets. John Huff
