Comic Review: Self/Made #3

Self/Made #3

Image Comics

Writer: Mat Groom

Artist: Edwardo Ferigato

Self/Made, as the title suggests, is a comic about the lives we choose for ourselves as well as the lives that are thrust upon us.

Rebecca, a savvy programmer, has created the singularity. The singularity is a video game character named Amala. To test that Amala is actually sentient, Rebecca guides her creation into another game filled with space zombie-things. The leader of the space zombies is none other than Bryce, Rebecca’s corporate nemesis at the company she works at. Rebecca and Amala must win the game to prove Amala’s sentence.
