Do Graphic Androids Dream of Cartoon Sheep?

do andoids.jpgFollowing in the footsteps of Tim Hamilton's adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, comes a graphic novel adaptaion of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. The novel, which will be published in a series of volumes, will mix comics with the full original text of Dick's novel and, according to Publisher's Weekly, is not just a retelling of Blade Runner, the movie based on this book that incorporated significant changes. The first issue of the comic is out now, with 24 issues expected for the series run and six hardcover collections to be published later, each containing four issues.
