Image announce “Aphrodite V, Vol. 1” collection coming this December
It’s a common trope in science-fiction: the artificial intelligence that gains sentience. Like all good sci-fi, it can be used to tell a rip-roaring adventure while simultaneously saying things about humanity, individual thought, and free will. Fascinating stuff all around, and in the right hands, it can lead to some great stories.
Bryan Hill certainly knows his way around a good story, and the first four issues of his Aphrodite V are getting collected in trade format soon. It’s a series that explores those very notions-- free will and individuality, especially-- so be sure to pick it up when it drops this December. Check out the details below.

Collecting issues #1-4
PORTLAND, OR, 10/22/2018 — Bryan Hill (CYBER FORCE, POSTAL) and Jeff Spokes will release APHRODITE V, VOL. 1 this December from Image/Top Cow.
In the near future, Los Angeles is a city on the brink of evolution, struggling with a new wave of terror powered by black market technology. Enter Aphrodite V: a fugitive from her masters, seeking individuality and purpose. She is the bleeding edge of biomechanics…and Los Angeles’ best hope against a new enemy that seeks to become a god among machines.
One machine wants to destroy the city. Another has come to save it. Only one will survive.
Aphrodite V, Vol. 1 will hit comic shops on December 19 and other retailers on December 25.
