Spot The Indifference on Playstation Network – Check back soon, a review is coming!
The Indifference Engine: A Holographic Novel launches on PSN.
â€œBeing a science fiction fan, I sometimes ache for a comic that will challenge my perceptions of the world, of the universe, of my way of thinking…The Indifference Engine, written by Cy Dethan (Cancertown)with pencils by Robert Carey, scratches that itch spectacularly!” said Wayne Hall of Sci-Fi Pulse.
Happily you can now find relief for all your own inter-dimensional itches as, with a little holiday magic, The Indifference Engine (Dethan, Carey, Cook, Wilkinson) has been bumped up Markosia Enterprisesâ€™ release schedule and has made its way to the Playstation Network Comic Store just in time for Christmas.
Responding to a strangely specific job advertisement, Alan Blake, a distinctly ordinary twenty-something suburban slacker finds himself in the middle of an inter-dimensional task force staffed entirely by superhuman alternate versions of himself. Struggling to fit in, he uncovers a conspiracy that strikes at the very heart of the organisation â€“ a conspiracy that only he can stop.
“Cy Dethan’s script is superb on this book”, said John (Sci-Fi Art Now) Freeman on Down The Tubes “This [is a] tightly-written multi-universe-spanning adventure tale and it’s…definitely a book to look out for.”
My name is Alan Blake.
I’ve got no resources, no skills and no friends.
But if I were you, I’d be the very last person on Earth
I’d want coming after me…
The Indifference Engine reunites the Cancertown team of Dethan, Cook and Wilkinson, joined this time around by penciller Rob Carey on his first full-length graphic novel.
Publisher Harry Markos, speaking about the launch on the PSN forum, said: â€œYouâ€™re going to be freaked out. I warned you, a while ago, that The Indifference Engine would blow your minds. Well, as promised, issue one is here to do just that!â€
Meanwhile, over on the PSN blog, Pauline Martyn (Publishing Manager, Digital Comics) posted: â€œCancertown was one of the highlights of our early offerings â€“ a great series which steadily grew a loyal cult following during its time on the store. Now, writer Cy Dethan is back with the superlative The Indifference Engine through Markosia.â€
Before we go, a final word from Sci-Fi Pulse:
“I LOVED having to pay attention and taking my time to keep track of what was going on. I LOVED the pay-off at the end as well. Itâ€™s a great mental exerciseâ€“my brain was tired for a long time after reading it….In fact, I LOVED that, too! What a great comic!”
