The Animals Are Dying. Someone Needs To Hunt Androids.
These Two Men Will Be The First.

April 22, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA – This May, BOOM! Studios and Electric Shepherd bring you the debut of the authorized prequel to Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi masterpiece DO ANDROID DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? — the publishing event of the year is DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST!

Written by Chris Roberson, a John W. Campbell Award-nominee and writer of DC’s hit mini-series CINDERELLA: FROM FABLETOWN WITH LOVE, DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST will feature spectacular interior art by 48 STRON and STATUS 7 artist Robert Adler. The prequel makes a great companion to BOOM! Studios and Electric Shepherd’s Eisner Award-nominated DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? comic series or can be read completely on it’s own.

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST answers the question of who hunted androids before Rick Deckard. Taking place immediately after World War Terminus ends, the problems with artificial life — androids — become apparent. The government decides that the androids must be hunted down — but who will do the dirty work? Two men are assigned: Malcolm Reed, a “special” human with the power to feel others’ emotions, and Charlie Victor who’s the perfect man for the job… or is he? What secret does Victor hide? All the while, Samantha Wu, a Stanford biologist, fights to save the last of the living animals.

“We’ve been thrilled with the DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? series, and are excited to expand this world in DUST TO DUST,” said Isa Dick Hackett of Electric Shepherd Productions. “Chris Roberson’s original prequel story reflects and builds on the themes of Philip K. Dick’s original work, and BOOM! has assembled a fantastic team of artists to realize this vision.”

“DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST explores Philip K. Dick’s universe to a degree no one has dared before,” says BOOM! Studios Marketing Director Chip Mosher. “This all new story is set in a world familiar to Philip K. Dick fans, but make no mistake this is a much different beast. Combine a city, struggling to return from global war, and a hunt for an enemy that could be anyone, and you have just a taste of DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST.”

DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? DUST TO DUST is written by Chris Roberson with interior art by Robert Adler. Issue one ships with two covers by Trevor Hairsine (CAPTAIN AMERICA) and Benjamin Carré in a 50/50 split, a 1-in-10 incentive cover featuring art by Julian Tedesco (UNTHINKABLE), and carries a Diamond Code of JAN100804.
