Straight for the art | Templesmith’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Ben Templesmith unveils some pages he created for an unsuccessful bid to adapt Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (BOOM! Studios’ approach — a 24-issue series using the original text of the science-fiction classic — apparently was preferred by Dick’s heirs.)
“My take was always going to be a little different,” Templesmith writes, “definitely not wanting to use every single word of prose but getting all the dialogue and descriptions as right as I could. Translations between mediums, I’m sure you’d all agree, should be about playing to the strengths of the new one, not just trying to force a square peg in a round hole, etc.”
