The Robot Revolution is Among Us in Hermes Press' Latest Graphic Novel Collection

On February 1st, Hermes Press announced their production of These Machines Are Winning's (TMAW) first graphic novel art collection titled These Machines Are Winning: Slaves For Gods. The art collective will be released as two editions, Teenage LSD and Slaves For Gods. Each collective will sport a different cover by award-winning illustrators.

Cover art A by Jock (All Star Batman, Wytches) comes with a digital download of “Teenage LSD”,  an analog exploration into dreamy 60's psych pop, with music contributions by members of The Polyphonic Spree, Leon Bridges band, and the Toadies.
 
Cover art B art by Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead) comes with a digital download of the album “Slaves For Gods,” a combination of dark electro-cyber punk, shoegaze, and early industrial pop co-produced by Dafe Trumfio (Wilco), and Casey Dilorio (Midlake), with music contributions by members of Cursive, Psychedelic Furs, Sarah Jaffe, White Denim and True Widow.

The official Hermes Press description of the graphic novel is as follows: 

Sentient Technologies just developed the world’s first self-aware AI program, Jenny 001. She is perfect in every way, except that she was created using stolen alien technology. Advancing quicker than the company could have predicted, JENNY 001 falls in love with a computer programmer named Daryl, and when their relationship is threatened, he is forced to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. In the process, Daryl crosses paths with the Slaves For Gods, an anarchist group with a similar agenda, to bring down Sen-Tec, and it’s maniacal CEO Gasoline Face. Equal parts science fiction, and post 9-11 paranoia, Slaves For Gods is a graphic novel about love, the corruption of power, and the dark side of human nature.


These Machines Are Winning Reviews

Praise for These Machines Are Winning (TMAW) & Slaves For Gods: “There’s a lot of passion in the whole project, and to me, that’s what’s exciting about it.” - Jock (Wytches), excerpt from PASTE Magazine Interview

“A cyberpunk soundtrack for 21st century paranoia.” - D Magazine

“TMAW isn’t a jumbled Rubik’s Cube but an evolving puzzle with intricately designed pieces that ultimately fit together seamlessly. It’s controlled chaos, and he (Dylan Silvers) finds it immensely satisfying to watch the moving parts of TMAW gradually fall into place.” - DALLAS OBSERVER
