"[An] engaging story of horrifying bodily changes that upend the teenage experience... The pencil-shaded, hand-drawn style of the art contrasts well with the tech-focused story." — Booklist
"Bionic reboots the teenage romance and propels it into the twenty-first century." — BD Gest
"A very fine social critique, full of strangeness and uncertainty." — Bodoï
An eerie and beautiful coming-of-age graphic novel for the digital generation, from the stunningly creative mind behind Highwayman and Love Addict.
Bionic is a coming-of-age tale for the digital generation, taking place in the near future. It’s the story of Victor, a geeky teenager on a hopeless quest to win the love of the gorgeous Patricia — but when she returns from a horrible accident with astonishing new robotic parts, both their lives will be changed forever.
Koren Shadmi (Highwayman, The Twilight Man: Rod Serling and the Birth of Television) presents a hypnotically illustrated story of warm flesh and cold metal. It’s the story of a love that was never meant to be, of overwhelming emotions, trauma, rebellion, loss of innocence, and the fear that wanting something may not be enough. -- a 184-page, full-color graphic novel with french flaps (6.25" x 9.06")
