There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Boom! Studios’ adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and the buzz is good.   To prove it, Boom! sent along a five page sneak peek of the first issue arriving in stores in June.

Richard Starkings brings his unique eye and talent to BOOM! Studios new maxi-series DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? The Eisner Award-winning designer has won “Best Letterer” six times in a row from The Comic Buyers’ Guide and “Best Letterer” nine times in a row from Wizard Magazine and revolutionized comic book lettering digitally with his company Comicraft.

“Anyone who’s been paying attention to ELEPHANTMEN knows I have a special place in my heart for BLADE RUNNER and Philip K. Dick,” said Richard Starkings in a prepared statement. “I read DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? when I was a teenager and have been working my way through Dick’s novels ever since. It’s really nice to be involved with the comic book. ‘Nice’ is English for ‘Awesome,’ by the way.”
