Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?: Dust to Dust 4 (August 2010)

Now I’m reminded of A Scanner Darkly, the film adaptation, I haven’t read the book (also by Philip K. Dick). Something about the colors.

It’s a brave move, to try to continue Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Roberson isn’t failing. The first issue just suggested he’d knock it out of the park, kind of like K.W. Jeter’s sequels to Blade Runner. It’s not a failure by any means.

This issue shows all of Roberson’s strengths–for example, he continues to develop the Dr. Wu character, giving her personality all sorts of lovely facets. He deftly introduces them both in dialogue and in her narration. It’s well done.

There’s just not a story. It’s a prequel in a really general sense (so far), borrowing on some concepts instead of continuing a story. Nice how a prequel continues even though it comes before.

But anyway. I’m glad there’s only one more.
