LIZ PRINCE                
ROBERT VENDETTI        UNDERWATER WELDER
The Surrogates
Written by Robert Vendetti, Art by Brett Weldele
The year is 2054, and life has been reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics
has ushered in the era of the personal surrogate, android substitutes that let users interact with the
world without ever leaving their homes. It's a perfect world, and it's up to Detectives Harvey Greer and
Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they’ll need to stop a techno-
terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing
them.
In the tradition of William Gibson and Philip K. Dick, The Surrogates is more than just an action story with
sci-fi trappings. Applying familiar tropes in unfamiliar ways, The Surrogates is about progress and
whether there exists a tipping point at which technological advancement will stop enhancing and start
hindering our lives. It is also a commentary on identity, the Western obsession with physical
appearance, and the growing trend to use science as a means of providing consumers with beauty on
demand.
This volume collects all five issues of the critically-acclaimed comic book miniseries. Packed with bonus
content, inside you will find never-before-seen sketches and artwork, as well as commentary from the
creative team that brought this breakout story to the page.
"The Best Indie Book of 2005. Sci-fi tales are making a comeback and The Surrogates is quietly leading
the charge
." -- IGN  
"Good science fiction is hard to come by, but Venditti’s blend of technology, crime drama and social
commentary makes for the most original sci-fi mythology in years."
-- Wizard Magazine
6 5/8" x 10 1/8" Format, 208 PGS.

are made up of short vignettes that capture all the cute, gross, and endearing aspects of relationships.
