Based on the New York Times best-selling saga and Netflix series starring Joel Kinnaman (with Anthony Mackie in Season 2), Dynamite is releasing a hardcover original graphic novel set in Richard K. Morgan’s Altered Carbon universe. Written by Morgan with co-writer Rik Hoskin (White Sand, Red Rising) and drawn by Ferran Sellares (Grimm Fairy Tales), Altered Carbon: Download Blues offers a new 128-page-story following Takeshi Kovacs, the protagonist in this futuristic epic saga.
Technology has advanced to allow human consciousness to be stored digitally and transferred to new bodies called “sleeves,” if you can pay for this commodity. You never grow old and die, but some bodies are more temporary than others. Takeshi Kovacs knows what it’s like to jump from sleeve to sleeve, having been a member of the Envoy Corps and now currently working as a PI in a different body. Even though he’s living a different life, is he really able to walk away from his old ways?
The hardcover version of the graphic novel is set to release Wednesday June 26. Take a look at some exclusive art ahead of the release. Visit Dynamite’s website to purchase your copy or get your digital copy on Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more.
