In the not too distant future, most people stay home and live and work remotely through highly realistic high-tech robots called surrogates. When his surrogate is damaged while investigating the destruction of several surrogates in an electrical storm and during a break-in at a lab, Harvey finds himself the odd man out when he decides to actually go to work in person.
This near-future dystopian story is more social commentary (/warning?) than mystery, but I enjoyed pondering the questions it poses. From what I hear, the movie adaptation with Bruce Willis is quite different, so I'll have to watch it and compare the two. If you give this a look-see, you might consider coming to BWD to chat about it in the fall when it has its turn in our ongoing graphic novel discussions.*
