Laurent Queyssi (writer) Mauro Marchesi (art)One of the greatest writers in science fiction history, Philip K. Dick is mostly remembered for such works as Blade Runner, Minority Report and Total Recall. His dark, fascinating work centered on alternate universes and shifting realities in worlds often governed by monopolistic corporations and authoritarian governments.
His own life story seems a tussle with reality, going through five wives and becoming increasingly disjointed with fits of paranoia and hallucinations fueled by abuse of drugs meant to stabilize him. His dramatic story is presented unvarnished in this biography.
"My real hope is that readers new to Dick and hopefully intrigued by this portrait of him will go on to read the man's actual work. Approach it with an open mind and you won't be disappointed."
-Charles de Lint, Fantasy & SF
"A moving overview. Impressively propulsive, skipping smoothly across the years."
"Unreservedly and enthusiastically recommended."
-Midwest Book Review
"For fans of Philip K. Dick, as well as new readers, this will prove to be an engaging read."
"Through deeply personal anecdotes and skilled artistic storytelling, this comic reveals the side of Dick's life that is as turbulent and ungrounded as the fictional worlds he is famed for creating."
-Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"This graphic novel serves as both an intriguing introduction to the man and a unique visual window into his world."
