Phillip K. Dick resurrected in Comics. Finally.


One of may favorite authors is Phillip K. Dick. He is a creative and intelligent storyteller. Many of his novels have been made into movies like “Blade Runner” and “A Scanner Darkly.” Dick had an amazing habit of diving into the human psyche on both an individual level and on a society level. Pick up any book by him and you will know what I’m talking about.

Naturally, when I saw this, this made my day. Comics Alliance reports:

For a man who’s been dead for nearly thirty years, Philip K. Dick is suddenly getting a lot of attention. With BOOM! Studios starting “Dust to Dust” this week, a prequel to “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” there are now three PKD-related comics to hit the shelves in the past year, including Marvel’s “Electric Ant.” And several venerated comics creators have come forward to contribute to these projects: David Mack, Paul Pope, Warren Ellis, Ed Brubaker, and New York Times Bestselling Author Jonathan Lethem.

This is tremendous news. I am personally a huge fan of Ed Brubaker and to a lesser extent, Paul Pope. I’m sure these tremendous talents will do PKD proud.
