Donít believe in death as an end. There is no such thing. Believe in new beginnings. Fresh perspectives. Every exit is an entrance somewhere else.

Philip K. Dick's Electric Ant #1 Press Release
Marvel and Electric Shepherd Productions are proud to announce that the graphic fiction adaptation of Electric Ant, Philip K. Dick's seminal science fiction short story, arrives in comic shops this April with PHILIP K. DICK'S ELECTRIC ANT #1! Acclaimed creators David Mack (DAREDEVIL, KABUKI) and Pascal Alixe (ULTIMATE X-MEN), along with cover artist Paul Pope (STRANGE TALES) and consulting editor Brian Michael Bendis (Siege, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man), unite for an adaptation of this existential thriller unlike anything you've ever imagined. Garson Poole's life is pretty great, with the job, apartment and sexy assistant of his dreams, but a visit to the hospital uncovers a dark secret about his existence. Revealed as an "Electric Ant," a type of robot programmed to serve a specific function, Poole's life is thrown into a tailspin as he works to discover the truth about his programming...and reality itself!

As one of the most celebrated authors of the last century, Philip K. Dick is the winner of both the prestigious the Hugo Award and the John W. Campbell awards, which honor excellence in science fiction. Inducted into the Library of America in 2007, Dick has received unprecedented literary recognition for his contributions to modern literature, specifically in the area of science fiction. His 45 novels and over 210 short stories have been adapted into numerous hit films, including blockbusters Minority Report, Total Recall and Blade Runner.

"Philip K. Dick is one of the most groundbreaking sci-fi authors ever and we're honored to bring his stories to life at Marvel," said Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer & Editor-in-Chief, Marvel Entertainment. "Electric Ant is an extraordinary interpretation of Philip K. Dick's classic short story, one that I', sure all fans will enjoy."

Laura Leslie, Dick's daughter and a partner with her sister, Isa Dick Hackett, in Electric Shepherd Productions, added, "As the first original adaptation of our father's work into this genre, we are thrilled with the creative team and the support of Marvel in the care they have taken to be true to the integrity of this story."

Combining the unparalleled literary prowess of Philip K. Dick with some of the most imaginative creators in comics today, PHILIP K. DICK'S ELECTRIC ANT is the sci-fi graphic fiction event of the year!
