Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Found these the other day, looking through my archives for stuff needed for another project...


Awhile ago, I got asked to do up some samples to see if the famous Philip K Dick story, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep could be adapted into comics form. For various reasons it was not to be, with me, though in a different form the publisher, BOOM! put out a book of it instead. My take was always going to be a little different, definitely not wanting to use every single word of prose but getting all the dialogue and descriptions as right as I could. Translations between mediums, I'm sure you'd all agree, should be about playing to the strengths of the new one, not just trying to force a square peg in a round hole, etc.
