Boom! Studios has announced its adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? #1 has sold out at the distributor level, prompting Boom! to send the issue back to press.
DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? takes place in a world where San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic fakes: horses, birds, cats, sheep… even humans. Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids — they’re machines, that not only look, sound, and think like humans, but are clever, and most of all, as dangerous as any human.
I had a chance to read this earlier this week, and was very impressed with what is going on with this issue. Boom! is trying to get the issue into retailer’s hands as soon as possible, although at this time it does not have an expected ship date.
