In July for Tacoma Pride month we’re reading O Human Star, Vol. 1 by Blue Delliquanti, a graphic novel edition of the popular webcomic featuring a futuristic sci-fi tale. BONUS: The artist will be joining us for a special Skype chat during the club!
From TVTropes.com: “Alastair Sterling was the inventor who sparked the robot revolution. And because of his sudden death, he didn’t see any of it.
Until he wakes up 16 years later in an advanced robotic body that matches his old one exactly. Until he steps outside and finds a world utterly unlike the one he left behind –- a world where robots live and do business alongside their human neighbors and coexist in their cities. A world he helped create.
Al seeks out his old research partner Brendan to find out if he is responsible for Al’s unexpected resurrection, but his return raises far more questions for both of them.
Like who the robot living with Brendan is. And why she looks like Al. And how much of the men’s past should stay in the past…
Created by Blue Delliquanti. The webcomic can be found here. The rare page is Not Safe for Work, and the webcomic overall is intended only for audiences 16 and older.”
The book can be purchased at Destiny City Comics and you get 15% off if you mention the book club discount. Stadium District’s only comic shop also sells many other fine graphic novels.
