I am always on the lookout for new and interesting material in comics. Additionally, I love Blade Runner. It is easily my favorite sci-fi movie of all time. Unfortunately, I have never gotten around to reading the book, though I know I should. One day I stumbled upon this graphic novel, and my interest was immediately peaked. This was, after all, an authorized prequel to the book. I purchased this volume, and I was not disappointed. This is in no way a rushed job. It is carefully crafted, and the story is mature and very in tune with what Phillip K. Dick had in mind for his book. The art direction in this book is influenced by Blade Runner, and as such it is dreary and very dark. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, and I hope other Blade Runner fans can discover this amazing story. If you like comic books, or if you are a science fiction enthusiast, buy this graphic novel. It is completely worth it.

So cool. I love this version.

A Little Disappointing. Doesn't add much to the main story line, and not nearly as interesting.

This is the complete review as it appears <a href="http://ianwoodnovellum.blogspot.com/2014/08/do-androids-dream-of-electric-sheep.html">at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV</a>. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's novels reviewed on the blog will generally have some images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.

Note that I don't really do stars. To me a novel is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate a novel three-fifths worth reading! The only reason I've relented and started putting stars up there is to credit the good ones, which were being unfairly uncredited. So, all you'll ever see from me is a five-star or a one-star (since no stars isn't a rating, unfortunately).

I rated this novel WORTHY!

WARNING! MAY CONTAIN UNHIDDEN SPOILERS! PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!

I picked this up, in my sweet, blind innocence, thinking it was simply the graphic version of Philip Dick's novel. It isn't (hence the 'dust to dust' subtitle!), and I was actually glad I made the mistake because I might not have checked it out of the library had I realized it, and then i would have missed a really entertaining read.

This is actually a prequel to the novel, and while I realize that that might sound like sacrilege to Dick purists, I had no problem with it. It features an android partnered with an empath, trying to track down rogue androids, believe it or not! Malcolm Reed (shades of Star Trek Enterprise!) is the empath, and the CV version of the android has the totally uninspired name of Charlie Victor. seriosuly? Did nobody in his acquaintance actually notice that?!

One of the main characters is a really interesting Asian girl who is a scientist, and who ahs the equally uninspired name of Samantha Wu, but how cool is it that we have a female scientist? She's studying issues related to why animals, but not human animals, are slowly but surely becoming extinct. She's unaware that her assistant is an android, and despite her impressive scientific credentials, she cannot fathom why this female android would want to kidnap her....

I can't tell you any more because this was only volume one! I decided to pick up volume 2 and follow up on this story, but it turned out to be a bust - nowhere near as entertaining as the first volume, so I guess I'm done here. I do recommend volume one, though. Maybe you'll like the follow-ups better than I did.

This was a very interesting beginnning to this story. You've got an android and some sort of empath hunting down androids. You also get peoples' attempts to find a cure to the dust problems of the world, the beginnings of Mercism and flashbacks to the wars that the androids were made to fight in. It's all very intriguing and definitely something I'm interested in continuing to read.
