Ever since Boom! Studios announced it was adapting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into comic book form, it has been on my radar as something I really want to check out.  Boom! apparently senses my desire to dive into the first issue that arrives next week, as it sent a sneak peek of the first issue for all to enjoy.

Written by Philip K. Dick
SC, 24 pgs, FC, (1 of 24), SRP: $3.99
Diamond Code: APR090725

THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE FILM BLADE RUNNER COMES TO BOOM with backmatter by Warren Ellis! Worldwide best-selling sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick’s award-winning DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? has been called “a masterpiece ahead of its time, even today” and served as the basis for the film BLADE RUNNER. BOOM! Studios is honored to present the complete novel transplanted into the comic book medium, mixing all new panel-to-panel continuity with the actual text from the novel in an innovative, ground-breaking 24-issue maxi-series experiment!
