I am always on the lookout for new and interesting material in comics. Additionally, I love Blade Runner. It is easily my favorite sci-fi movie of all time. Unfortunately, I have never gotten around to reading the book, though I know I should. One day I stumbled upon this graphic novel, and my interest was immediately peaked. This was, after all, an authorized prequel to the book. I purchased this volume, and I was not disappointed. This is in no way a rushed job. It is carefully crafted, and the story is mature and very in tune with what Phillip K. Dick had in mind for his book. The art direction in this book is influenced by Blade Runner, and as such it is dreary and very dark. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, and I hope other Blade Runner fans can discover this amazing story. If you like comic books, or if you are a science fiction enthusiast, buy this graphic novel. It is completely worth it.
