Wouldn't it be helpful to have a field guide to preparing for the inevitable takeover by the robot overlords? Something that gives you a fighting chance to survive? Dark Horse Comics wants to give you the information you need to get by in a tough world, with Nic Kelman offering a handbook to help androids and artificial intelligence hide among humanity. Illustrated by Pericles Junior with a gorgeous cover by Terry Dodson, the novel takes the form of a field guide written by Android Zero (a.k.a. Zach), who helpfully provides sketches, graphs, flow charts, and further information on how androids can pass as human completely undetected.
Holding a bachelor’s in brain and cognitive science from MIT, Kelman is not only an acclaimed prose novelist but also an accomplished screenwriter, with original screenplays sold to Steven Spielberg, Roland Emmerich, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Warner Bros. Pictures, and more. Sure to appeal to fans of The Zombie Survival Guide, How to Pass as Human puts a new spin on a science-fiction tradition as a curious android questions his own creation and explores the purpose of his existence.
Releasing in October, How to Pass as Human will be available for $19.99. Full press release below.
