Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"We are going to get the comic the way Phillip K. Dick wanted the story to be told." — Comic Vine

"Artist Tony Parker does a solid job...He's given the difficult, unenviable job of turning every part of Dick's writing into art - and to do so without copying the distinct visuals of Blade Runner. (...) All in all, this is an experiment that works and also contains a fabulous essay by Warren Ellis that introduces Philip K. Dick in a broader way. All in all, a great package ideal for newcomers and fans alike." — Comic Book Resources

"...impressively, it works... it's a great job." — io9.com

"Best bet" — MTV Splash Page
