PORTLAND, Ore. 2.5.2021 — Fan favorite writer Jeremy Holt (Virtually Yours, Before Houdini) joins breakout artist George Schall (Planet of the Apes, Chasing Echoes) for a new science fiction story titled Made In Korea. The six issue miniseries will launch from Image Comics this May.
"As an identical triplet and Korean adoptee, I wanted to explore my own self-exploration of identity through the lens of science-fiction,” said Holt. “I think anyone that is looking for a new take on an Artificial Intelligence story will thoroughly enjoy what George and I have crafted."
Made In Korea is Alex Garland's Ex Machina meets Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen's Descender and perfect for fans of Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn's Alex + Ada.
In Made In Korea, readers will follow Jesse, the world’s first true A.I. system, on an exciting exploration of what it means to be a family in an age when biological parenthood is no longer a reality.
Schall added: “In a genre that often feels old because of how fast our world evolves, Jeremy has managed to write a story that feels both very personal and relevant to this day. Doesn't matter if you're a sci-fi fan or not, there's something everyone will be able to relate to in this comic."
Made In Korea #1 (Diamond Code MAR210048) is scheduled to hit shelves in time for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 26.
Made In Korea #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
