It’s odd that in the last five years Philip K. Dick has experienced another resurgence in popularity.  With Boom Studio’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” it was only a matter of time before other comic publishers started offering their interpretations of PKD stories. Marvel Comics landed the rights to Electric Ant, and sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the first issue.

Cover by Paul Pope
Variant Cover by David Mack
Rated T+ …$3.99

Garson Poole’s life is pretty great, with the job, apartment and sexy assistant of his dreams, but a visit to the hospital uncovers a dark secret about his existence. Revealed as an “Electric Ant,” a type of robot programmed to serve a specific function, Poole’s life is thrown into a tailspin as he works to discover the truth about his programming…and reality itself!

The first issue arrives in April

    I have to say I have been looking forward to this for a while. The art looks great, but I have to wonder how many issues will this be. My wallet can’t take a “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” length story.
