"The Best Indie Book of the year. Sci-fi tales are making a comeback and The Surrogates is quietly leading the charge." -- IGN "An absolutely fascinating piece of work -- heartfelt and thoughtful." -- Fantasy & Science Fiction "Good science fiction is hard to come by, but Venditti's blend of technology, crime drama and social commentary makes for the most original sci-fi mythology in years."-- Wizard Magazine "Robert Venditti delivers an impressive comics debut."-- SFX "A resplendently grimy commentary."-- Entertainment Weekly The year is 2054, and life is reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the personal surrogate, android substitutes that let users interact with the world without ever leaving their homes. It's a perfect world, and it's up to Detectives Harvey Greer and Pete Ford of the Metro Police Department to keep it that way. But to do so they'll need to stop a techno-terrorist bent on returning society to a time when people lived their lives instead of merely experiencing them. The Surrogates is a story about progress and whether there exists a tipping point at which technological advancement will stop enhancing and start hindering our lives. It is also a commentary on identity, the Western obsession with physical appearance, and the growing trend to use science as a means of providing consumers with beauty on demand. This volume collects all five issues of the acclaimed comic book series. Packed with bonus content, inside you will find never-before-seen sketches and artwork, as well as commentary from the creative team that brought this breakout story to the page.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Named one of the year's best graphic novels by CNN, Complex, IFC, School Library Journal, Library Journal, and USA Today! "A great, paranoid read for the modern age."-- Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "Venditti's cat-mouse thriller demands edge-of-your-seat attention while raising serious questions about terrorism, personal privacy, and government responsibility ... excellent writing and plotting, and dead suitable art."-- Library Journal "In exploring the nature of the relation between the individual, society and the state, one would anticipate The Homeland Directive to elevate both the thriller genre and the comics medium. Venditti delivers admirably on both counts."-- Dr. shathley Q, PopMatters "An addictive page-turner that feels like an edge-of-your-seat theater experience. Huddleston's art puts the focus where it needs to be to wring every drop of tension from the story, and Venditti's script shows that he doesn't need the sci-fi elements of his earlier work to craft a fascinating, fast-paced thriller."-- Rick Marshall, MTV Splash Page "The conspiracy at the heart of this superbly paced thriller makes the Illuminati and the New World Order look like rank amateurs."-- Garrett Martin, Paste Magazine "An exceptionally good graphic novel for the moment... with a sophisticated sense of how government works."-- Alyssa Rosenberg, ThinkProgress "It's unlikely you'll find a book that looks as good as The Homeland Directive this year."-- Graeme McMillan, Robot 6 "Pulse-pounding... well-characterized, the plotting is tight, and the stakes are high. Mike Huddleston's art flips from pen and ink to painterly, but consistently captures the right mood and inspires the gritting of teeth."-- Jeremy Nisen, Under the Radar A new thriller from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Surrogates! As a leading researcher at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Laura Regan is one of the world's foremost authorities on viral and bacteriological study. Having dedicated her career to halting the spread of infectious disease, she has always considered herself one of the good guys. But when her research partner is murdered and Laura is blamed for the crime, she finds herself at the heart of a vast and deadly conspiracy. Aided by three rogue federal agents who believe the government is behind the frame-up, Laura must evade law enforcement, mercenaries, and a team of cyber-detectives who know more about her life than she does-- all while trying to expose a sinister plot that will impact the lives of every American. Set in the Orwellian present, The Homeland Directive confronts one of the vital questions of our time: In an era when technology can either doom or save us, is it possible for personal privacy and national security to coexist?

In a dark downtown alley in Central Georgia Metropolis, a juvenile prank goes too far and a homeless man is killed. When the ensuing investigation reveals that the attackers aren't who they appeared to be, justice depends on the testimony of a single witness -- a street snitch with a history of providing information to a uniformed cop named Harvey Greer. Harvey is placed on special assignment to track down the informant, but others have their own designs, including a wealthy socialite and an ex-con turned religious leader known to his followers as The Prophet. As days pass and anger among the anti-surrogate population grows, the city stands on a razor's edge. Will punishment be exacted in a courtroom... or on the streets? Set fifteen years prior to the events of the first volume, The Surrogates: Flesh and Bone sheds light on the past that binds the cast together. From the streets of Central Georgia Metropolis to the boardroom of Virtual Self, Inc., it takes us on a journey through a city struggling to come to grips with its present. As much a cautionary tale as a story of suspense, this book reminds us that tomorrow will be determined by the choices we make today.

This book stages a timely discussion about the centrality of identity politics to theatre and performance studies. It acknowledges the important close relationship between the discourses and practices historically while maintaining that theatre and performance can enlighten ways of being with others that are not limited by conventional identitarian languages. The essays engage contemporary theatre and performance practices that pose challenging questions about identity, as well as subjectivity, relationality, and the politics of aesthetics, responding to neo-liberal constructions and exploitations of identity by seeking to discern, describe, or imagine a new political subject. Chapters by leading international scholars look to visual arts practice, digital culture, music, public events, experimental theatre, and performance to investigate questions about representation, metaphysics, and politics. The collections seeks to foreground shared, universalist connections that unite rather than divide, visiting metaphysical questions of being and becoming, and the possibilities of producing alternate realities and relationalities. The book asks what is at stake in thinking about a subject, a time, a place, and a performing arts practice that would come ‘after’ identity, and explores how theatre and performance pose and interrogate these questions.
