Image Comic’s Made in Korea Press Release
PORTLAND, Ore. 02/05/2021 — 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 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.
