Here’s what people are saying about THE SURROGATES:

“FLESH AND BONE reads like Philip K. Dick writing an episode of THE WIRE … a smart, compelling and adult work asking questions with no easy answers.” — io9

“Venditti and Weldele manage to craft an exciting futuristic crime story while composing a profound, morally complex dialectic. … It takes a graphic novel about robots to find out what it means to be human.” — Dan Trachtenberg, THE TOTALLY RAD SHOW

“SURROGATES is gritty, compelling science fiction with a story that grabs you immediately and hangs on long after it’s over.” — Mark Frauenfelder, BOING BOING

“If THE SURROGATES dipped its toe into the tipping point of techno-social change, FLESH AND BONE deftly splashes about in the pool.” — UGO.com

“An absolutely fascinating piece of work — heartfelt and thoughtful.” — FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION

“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
