The trade paperback remains in print. The premise of the television series fascinated comic book artist Jack Kirby , who created a four-issue homage in in Fantastic Four , in which the superhero team finds itself in Doctor Doom 's Latveria , a city like the Village in many respects. In the "Bullpen Bulletins" page in Marvel Comics cover-dated July , Marvel announced a comic book based on The Prisoner , to be written by Steve Englehart and drawn by a then-unchosen artist and scheduled to be "starting this summer".
The artist assigned to the project would be Gil Kane. A test issue was put together but never completed all 17 pages were scripted and pencilled by Kirby, but only parts were lettered and inked, by Mike Royer.
Original artwork from this comic still exists and occasionally turns up for auction. Some of it has been published in the comic book fanzine The Jack Kirby Collector. The surviving artwork suggests that the first issue, at least, would have been an adaptation of "Arrival. The book, which presented the pages as actual size, also included an article written by Steve Englehart who wrote the Gil Kane comic, a foreword written by Mike Royer and included scans of the original ITC Press Pack as a bonus.
Mike Allred provided a fully coloured version of a Jack Kirby spread.

Rick Parker also provided a letterered version of the Gil Kane comics based on Englehart's original script. The new comic set within the world of The Prisoner introduced a Number Six in the guise of British secret agent Breen, who is given a mission to infiltrate The Village in order to rescue a fellow spy who had been taken prisoner by the mysterious and ultra secret establishment. The comic was critically well received. In the early s, Edu-Ware produced two computer games based upon the series for the Apple II computer.
The first, titled simply, The Prisoner , was released in , followed by a remake, Prisoner 2 in It included maps, episode synopses, details of the Village and its inhabitants, and much other material. For instance, it has suggestions for game scenarios with the premise interpretation for outer space, heroic fantasy , horror and even complete inversion into something akin to Hogan's Heroes.
The episode's third act, which serves as a parody of The Prisoner , features several references to the series. When the secret organization finds out about Homer's discovery, he is taken to a secret location called the "Island".

While he is in the "Island", Homer is repeatedly gassed by unexpected objects, a reference to the way Number Six would often be gassed in The Prisoner. While escaping the "Island", Homer is chased by a "big balloon". The balloon is a reference to Rover , a floating white ball in The Prisoner that was created to keep inhabitants in the "Village".
Yet in the case of Karen White , who is legally still a man but was put in a female-only prison, both sides of the transgender rights debate are united in the belief mistakes were made. White entered the UK prison system as transgender. However, despite dressing as a woman, the year-old had not undergone any surgery and was still legally a male. She was also a convicted paedophile and on remand for grievous bodily harm, burglary, multiple rapes and other sexual offences against women.
During a three-month period at the female prison she sexually assaulted two other inmates.

The Ministry of Justice has since apologised for the placement. Jenny-Anne Bishop, from the transgender rights group Transforum , said a local transgender case board made up of prison managers and psychologists decides where to place prisoners such as White within three days of a prisoner being taken into custody.

The board allows the prisoner to make representations, and considers any risks and whether the individual has been living in the gender with which they identify. Bishop says the board should have taken into account all offending history but failed to do so. She insisted people referred to her in her acquired gender without trying terribly hard to present as a woman. She was a person who would not compromise. Bishop said that over the years she had met thousands of trans people but White stood out.
Other members of the community said she had a very short temper.

Before entering the prison system White was living in a social housing complex in the village of Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire. I still feel scared in my own home. Born in July as Stephen Terence Wood, the former Manchester drag artist was convicted in on two charges of indecent assault and gross indecency with a child of primary school age, and jailed for 18 months. Previously, prisoners requiring such treatment would have needed a Gender Recognition Certificate GRC or to have had a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria.

For transgender prisoners, a gender recognition certificate GRC would normally be necessary before a person could be placed in a prison corresponding to their acquired gender. The service had initiated a review of the issue early in The government published a report on Noms' policy review in November which acknowledged that the treatment of transgender people in the criminal justice system had not kept pace with wider social views. While the guidelines had emphasised the role of GRCs and medical interventions, the report noted that many transgender people successfully lived their lives without these.
Such prisoners must be asked their view of the part of the prison estate that reflects this; however a decision to locate them in a prison which does not accord with their legal gender can only be made following a transgender case board. Those who wish to be placed in a prison location which is not consistent with their legally recognised gender must provide evidence of living in the gender with which they identify. Assessments will be made on a case by case basis.
A government survey has counted transgender prisoners in England and Wales, which is likely to be an underestimate. According to MoJ figures released in response to a freedom of information request by the BBC, 60 of them have been convicted of one or more sexual offences.
Frances Crook, the chief executive of the Howard League for Penal Reform, said grave mistakes were made in the White case and the safety of vulnerable women should be paramount. There may be a case for having separate provision; that is a debate to be had.
