An Android Awakes, due to be published on Friday the 13th November 2015, will be available in advance exclusively at the Film and Comic Con Brighton on 7-8th November 2015.

With text by Mike French and art by Karl Brown, An Android Awakes charts the struggle for survival and the fate of a story teller in a future where culture is shaped by machines and the novel has been reduced to a thousand words.

The team responsible for this innovative combination of art and prose will be appearing on the Comic Zone Panel Programme to chat about the concept and creative process behind An Android Awakes. Immediately afterwards An Android Awakes will be launched and available for the first time in print.

Android Writer PD121928 is part of the Android Publishing Program. To replicate their idea of a writer’s life, his partner has been forcibly removed and he lives in solitude with an allowance for drugs and prostitutes. He also has just had his novel The Eating of Citizen Kane rejected. He has 14 more attempts to get a novel accepted for the humans by the Android Publishing Programme or he will be deactivated. Can one of his characters and their story save him?

Featuring Absolute Zero (the coolest spaceship ever built – literally), an ocean in the sky, sub-atomic particles, a Märchen zoo, android communion, naked angels and mockingbirds, An Android Awakes hurtles towards the shocking conclusion of Android Writer PD121928’s fate.
