Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? does its job fairly well as an interpretation of the novel. Parts have been changed from the prose of the novel. Nor does it have the cleaner world of the movie version. But the comic has much to offer for readers and can serve as a good introduction to the tale.
Philip K. Dick
For fans of Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle will have undoubtedly already been on their radar for quite some time. Dick’s fiction has been adapted into several acclaimed films, including Blade Runner, Minority Report and A Scanner Darkly. In this recent batch of Amazon pilots, Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) adapts The Man in the High Castle with the vision of turning the source material into a full television series. Those unfamiliar with Dick’s written work need only know that his interest is in science-fiction and that the worlds he creates are generally immersive, vast, and intricately planned-out.
