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?

    Electric Ant is an interesting experiment on Marvel's part, but hardly the runaway success that their Oz and Dark Tower books have been. I fully expect this series will pick up when Mack's scripts move deeper into Garson's exploration of his own reality. I just won't count on the visual side of things to improve accordingly.

    "Electric Ant" #1 is an interesting comic, especially for fans of Philip K. Dick like myself who can compare it to the story and debate over which changes work and which ones don't, but it doesn't offer anything new or different. The story of a man who discovers he's an android is one that people are familiar with; The draw of this story is how Dick plays with that later in the story, so the opening chapter is sure to be the weakest. I'm curious to see how Mack and Alixe handle the rest of the story and think people should stick with it since it should get much more interesting. Read Full Review
