Overview

  • The year is 2054, and life has been reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the surrogate, a new technology that lets users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It's a perfect world, and it's up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete
    Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they'll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them. Welcome to The
    Surrogates, a daring, five-issue, full-color miniseries coming this July from
    Top Shelf Productions.

I bought Surrogates on a whim. I'll admit that it was the sticker saying "Soon to be a Major Motion Picture" and the cool cover that drew me in. However, it was the phenomenal style of story-telling and artwork that won me over. Fans of the Japanese show/movie "Ghost in the Shell" in particular should not miss this story. Simultaneously a prophetic vision of a future that we (humanity) are headed towards and a cautionary tale, the story of Surrogates ranks up there with anything Alan Moore wrote. Pros: Beautiful art, engrossing story and characters, very unique presentation. Cons: The story, while phenomenal, at times does feel a little familiar. Final Verdict: If you enjoy a good and intelligent story, beautiful art and an interesting dose of science-fiction and philosophy you will love this graphic novel. Even if you only love one of those things try it anyways, you'll probably still love it.
