When I first heard about this it was like someone actually did something I wanted without me having to ask, it was a wonderful moment. This is the Prequel to the famous Do Androids Dream of Electric sheep. Bladerunner started me on my merry way into the world of Androids and the questions and moral dilemmas that come along with this wonderful genre of Science Fiction. (see Battle Angel Alita if this is down your alley) This to no surprise is a great addition to the universe of Phillip K. Dick. I mean it is being published by BOOM studios which specializes in adding to an established universe be it Muppet World or a not so distant future.

In this issue we meet Charlie Victor who has been assigned to partner up with Malcom Reed to terminate any rogue androids who have made their way to Earth. Malcom Reed is “special” the dust from the war has given him the power to see exactly what other peoples emotional states are. He is a Psychiatrist’s wet dream and already an awesome character. Charlie Victor on the other hand is still kind of a mystery but also an interesting character. Samantha Wu charmed me as well so I am definitely going to see this thru. There is mostly inner dialogue going on here and its excellent. The writer makes it seem like he has spent a lot of time thinking about how to approach this world that was already established with much success. He does not want to let us Phillip K. Dick fans down and he doesn’t.

The art is perfectly fitting for the setting. It is not a beautiful book but what it lacks in splendor it makes up for with realism. It almost felt like a movie with the well thought out shots and panels. I promise you will not be let down. I would much rather read this in trades but I want to support Boom no matter how much it sucks waiting. This is a great new title and a hell of a good idea.


Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good
