A SCANNER DARKLY's illustrated version of Philip Dick's classic science fiction novel consists entirely of stills from the animated motion picture of the same name, packing into book for a process which uses live action photography and animation. One wouldn't think this movie method would translate well into a book--but it does, providing a brilliant color layout of graphic arts accenting a fast-paced story set in Orange County CA, where the war on drugs has been lost. Fans of the novel and/or film should add A SCANNER DARKLY's graphic novel to their libraries.
