Over at Total Dick-Head, David Gill has word on the forthcoming comic book adaptation of Philip K. Dick's iconic novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Of course, this is the 1968 book that the film Blade Runner was based on. The first issue will have four cover versions with art by Denis Calero, Bill Sienkiewicz and Scott Keating, and Moritat.

So while we’re sure those new PowerBeats Pro earbuds are something special, why would you shell out $250 for a tiny pair of speakers when comparable ones are […]
Big companies take on big projects. When they do that, they need a project manager to lay out a roadmap for the entire team – and they’re typically willing to pay a big paycheck to the person who can fill those shoes. So what does it take to become a project manager? If you don’t […]
