FROM THE MIND OF LEGENDARY SCI-FI AUTHOR PHILIP K. DICK! Garson Poole had a pretty great life: good job, nice apartment, a sexy, flirtatious assistant. And then he wakes up in a hospital room…the doctors inform him that he’s been in a car accident…and they can’t treat him. Because he’s a robot. Specifically, Garson is an Electric Ant, a human-like robot created and programmed to serve a specific function. But what is Garson’s function? How will his friends and co-workers treat him, knowing that he’s a machine, and not a person? And how much of his world is real, and how much of it is part of his programming? Written by Kabuki scribe David Mack and illustrated by Pascal Alixe (ETERNALS ANNUAL).

BONUS REVIEW by SHANE WALLACE

Philip K. Dick's Electric Ant is certainly a Philip K. Dick story, robots, advanced future, strange technology. The story starts with our hero in the hospital with no previous memory of how he got there or how he might have lost his hand. He soon learns from doctors that he isn't in fact human, but a worker robotic drone, commonly referred to as an "electric ant." Now our hero has to come to terms with not being what he thought he was and what hidden agenda that might be programmed into his sub-conscience. This is a great read to any Dick of Warren Ellis fans! It is obvious the inspiration to Frank Miller and Geoff Darrow's "The Hard Boiled" from 20 years ago! David Mack's script is solid and he subtly updates some of Dick's ideas. Pascal Alixe art work is beautiful and fitting in this dream like adventure.
I give it 9 out of 10 Grahams
