Whoa.....what a lame ending! I was super excited after trade five for a big knock down drag out fight by the main character and the three androids....but when that does not happen and we get an extended dream sequence? Or whatever it is....I just don't know? What a bummer! The series as a whole was fun I love the concept and the artwork. The last trade was sadly a disappointment

I loved the visualization of the world in this unabridged graphic novelization of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It captures my inner vision of Philip K. Dick's world much better than Blade Runner did, and often goes beyond the text in surprising ways that still fit with the story. The novel also works incredibly well as a comic -- most of the time. When the introspection of characters goes on too long, it's hard to read a wall of comic-style all-caps text. Each volume includes essays abou ...more

Having not even read the novel or watched Blade Runner before stumbling upon this series at my library, I went and checked a volume out, finding that I'd glossed over the part where it was volume 3. In my defense, the number was somewhat obscured by the library's bar code sticker on its lower spine.

After picking up the first two volumes to complement it, I sluggishly took it in. At first it was jarring, reading descriptors galore while the art panels could have (/should have) handled the action

Reading all six volumes was fun. They were a great adaptation from Philip K. Dick's book by the same name. One of the things that Dick's science fiction presents that many others of his generation lacked was a not-so-positive outlook on the future. That is, a very grim outlook, almost completely bleak. The characters are in constant conflict not so much with the world as with themselves. There is also the elements of what is real, what is human, etc. In Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Phili ...more

The final volume of the graphic novel adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is just as strong as the first, and wraps things up just as they should be.

PKD's writing has withstood the test of time and change of medium - the conclusion to DADOES? will blow your mind if you're not expecting it. Even having read the book a couple times, I still had forgotten some of the intricacies and was reminded with force as they popped onto the page.

The art is still great, as it has been throughout

This is the final volume in BOOM! Studios' graphic novelization of P.K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. I thought there were more volumes, and I'm still confused about that, actually, since Goodreads shows covers for volumes 7, 8, and 9. But I'm pretty sure the book ends here.

As with every other volume, this doesn't disappoint. The art adds wonderfully to the unexpurgated text without distracting from it. I can't recommend this series highly enough, especially if you're a fan of the

Ugh, don't make me say anything! Just read this now to be able to help answering a question for school. It's poorly written, outdated, post-nuclear apocalyptic crap. Why are they still reading this for school? No wonder teenagers don't like to read - especially not after this!

I have pulled out a bunch of food themes and musings from these arcs and I am going to blog about them. The relation of food to human/not human. Kinda of what it means to eat and socialize. Really enjoyed this series.

Fantastic conclusion to the series. The final volume doesn't disappoint, capturing all the intricate threads of Philip K. Dick's themes and uniting them. It's been a long time since I read "DADoES?" and I have forgotten the emotional impact of the conclusion and Deckard's choices.

As a series, this is one of the best adaptations from the written word that I have read. Narrative text is skillfully blended into dialog, preserving much of Dick's evocative prose. The artwork is always complementary,

This was our bookclub selection and having already read the story and seen Bladerunner which is based off this story (but not really the same story), I decided to revisit the story through a different artistic interpretation - the graphic novel. It was really beautiful and the artist purposefully did not keep the aesthetic similar to the movie version. 6 volumes to tell the story. Every word from Philip K Dick's book is in the graphic series.

This is the sixth and final volume of this outstanding graphic novel adaptation of the classic Philip K. Dick sci-fi novel that inspired the classic sci-fi film "Blade Runner" (also brilliant, but very different from the book). Dick's book is very well-represented in this format - ideal for anyone interested in delving into his particular sort of dystopic, metaphysical speculative fiction.

graphic novel.
Saw it on the new books shelf at the library and brought it home. Didn't realise it was volume 6 of a graphic novel series until I sat down with it. Read it anyways. And remembered that a) it has been forever since I read the novel and b) the novel was a bit hard to read and follow.

A faithful adaptation of the story... actually, I believe the story is written word-for-word as PKD had scripted it.
add to that some very nice artwork in graphic novel style and you merge two of my favorite things. PKD + G.N.

Extremely anti-climatic finish. If Ridley Scott had done a straight-up adaptation of the book instead of crafting Blade Runner out of this nonsense, his career might be over.

The art really pushes it into 5 Star territory. It greatly adds to the mood.
