Darby Pop’s City: The Mind in the Machine

The Mind in the Machine - www.whysoblu.comFrom the minds of writer Eric Garcia (Matchstick Men) and artistJavier Fernandez, Darby Pop Publishing’s City: The Mind in the Machine will make its debut this February!  “Practically every day in the news there’s a story about a new interface between man and machine. We’ve gone from punch-cards to keyboards to touchscreens in a matter of decades, and direct brain-system connections are already being explored,” said writerEric Garcia. “Between that and the ubiquity of wireless networking, we’re living in uncharted territory — which is why I’ve been so excited to tell the story of CITY: MIND IN THE MACHINE. It’s been a thrill working with Javier and Darby Pop to explore these concepts and bring this world to life.”
