When the first page of a comic has someone buying beer, you just know it’s going to be a good read. Dead Man’s Run #0 has just that…of course, there is way more to it than that. It’s the prison break from Hell, literally. Our main guide through this short ride is Captain Romero, a man who is definitely no saint. Many references to his past are made, but none explain it. Mysterious, ashen-faced female Wardens and demonic Generals also add to the Hellish scene that we witness within the City of Corruption, located under the Pyramid. Sadly, the story pauses just as it gets started…but we all expect that in issue #0, right?

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep #9Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep #9
Written by Philip K. Dick

Covers: Moritat, Scott Keating
BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99; Release date: March 3, 2010

Full disclosure, I love Philip K. Dick. I have almost every novel and short story he’s ever published including Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. While Androids is not my favourite book, it is the most well-known Dick novel, so it came as little surprise when I learned that BOOM! Studios was adapting it into comic book form.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep #9 picks up one of the most fascinating sections of the novel: the bounty hunter Deckard has been cornered by suspected android Luba Loft, who accuses him of being a sexual deviant. Instead of simply executing him right then and there, she calls in another police officer, Crams, who claims that he has never heard of a bounty hunter in the San Francisco police department named Deckard, nor has he ever heard of his superior, Harry Bryant. In fact, when Deckard tries to contact Bryant, the connection is cut off before Crams has a chance to speak with him. After finding the body of a “retired” android in Deckard’s car, he is arrested and shuffled into the back of Crams patrol car. Deckard soon realizes that he has been duped by the androids, and he is now at their mercy.

By Kathulhu

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is adapted from the book by Philip K. Dick (which inspired the Ridley Scott film Blade Runner) and is presented in graphic form by BOOM! Studios. The art by Tony Parker is appropriately dark with muted coloring done by Blond, and the story follows the illustrations in a continuous panel-by-panel format. Warren Ellis provides an “introduction,” found at the end of the comic.

The future, as painted by Dick, is a bleak and desolate place. It is the year 2021 and the population on planet Earth has been decimated by a radioactive dust that is the byproduct of World War Terminus. Few people are left on Earth, as the majority of survivors have left to colonize other planets. Those who remain on Earth run the risk of being labeled as “biologically unacceptable” while emigrants to the off world colonies receive the android of their choice.
