Okay, given how faithfully this series follows the source material, I will not get into specifics about the plot or themes or everything else we already know and love about the original novel, but rather regard the art style. Also, since I can't just review issue by issue, as they are part of a whole, I'll just copy/paste the following for each one. The art is, to put it simply, gorgeous, and in perfect harmony with the aesthetic Philip K. Dick attempted to imprint into his work through an, ...more

What more is there to say about this series that hasn't been said in my first four reviews? Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is a stupendous novel, and the comic adaptation fails to disappoint.

The art continues to supplement Philip K. Dick's prose and expand upon it in many ways. It br

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.

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.

Not much happens in this volume but still a lot of good stuff in here. Ready to read the final volume and maybe the prequel.

The most poignant of the volumes so far. Introspectively moody artwork continues throughout.
