Series Recap: It’s the year 2054, and life has been reduced to a data feed. The fusing of virtual reality and cybernetics has ushered in the era of the surrogate, a new technology that lets users experience the world without ever leaving their homes. It’s a perfect world, but as quickly as surrogates have changed society, forces are building to send this utopia spiraling into the past, and that’s a reality no one is prepared for. Welcome to The Surrogates, a daring, full-color, five-issue, bi-monthly miniseries from Top Shelf that features young talent, inventive storytelling, and a subtextual storyline focused on characters all-too-human.
