Le jeune éditeur Magnetic Press (Side-Kicked) fait sa rentrée 2015 en annonçant pas moins de neuf nouveaux titres pour sa deuxième année sur les stands.
parmi eux, le roman graphique ReProDuct de Austin Wilson et Logan Faerber (Oh, Killstrike, Blade: The Hunter) raconte comment le robot Carbon Barnes essaie de se familiariser avec la vie dans un futur où ses semblables ont été affranchis légalement.
[quote] In the future, robots have been legally granted the right to life. Their intelligence is not artificial, and it may not be the best approximation of a personality, but they reflect all the intricacies of a human mind and personality, only from within a manufactured shell, developing and learning as the rest of us do. They mirror us in all the ways we would want, but also in those ways we would wish to exclude…
Carbon Barnes is one such robot, just looking to get by with a meager job, nights out at the club with friends, maybe meet a nice girl. But he still has a lot to learn about the world, as all of us do, starting with what to make of this weird nightly phenomenon folks call “dreaming.” A slice-of-life story for everyone, with a robot-twist.[/quote]
