Out this week is Darby Pop Publishing and IDW’s new series City: The Mind in the Machine. A new surveillance system can prevent all crime in San Francisco. But it doesn’t work without a human mind to control it. A victim of a terrorist attack, Ben is turned into that mind. Tied into the surveillance system with bio-neural implants he becomes a one man army against crime, whether he likes it or not. So what do you do when you can control an entire city with your thoughts?
A bit RoboCop, a bit Bionic Man, City: The Mind in the Machine looks at security and technology in a very cinematic way.
A four-issue limited series, City is written by Eric Garcia, who wrote Matchstick Men and the screenplay for Repo Men. Pencils and inks are by Javier Fernandez with colors by Mark Englert and Felix Serrano. The cover is by Tommy Lee Edwards.
In its first issue, City has a great futuristic look, with nice special effects, quick action scenes, and interesting characters.
