Made In Korea
Jeremy Holt, George Schall
New York Public Library List – Best New Comics of 2022 for Adults!
A Korean nine-year-old named Jesse is adopted and sent to live with a lovely couple in America. Equipped with a seemingly encyclopedic brain but socially awkward, the young girl’s journey through the complexities of race, gender, and identity hits a fork in the road when she discovers she’s not entirely human…yet. Adolescence just got a lot more emotional for the world’s first true A.I. system.

"Impeccably crafted." -AIPT "Like the best Black Mirror episodes... Holt and Schall have created something special." -Nick Spencer "Poised to be the sleeper comic book hit of the summer." -Comic Book Resources "Ambitious and expansive... An exceptional comic." i?9;Graphic Policy "Holt folds their own background as a Korean-born, nonbinary, transracial adoptee, brilliantly melding identity issues with speculative AI enhancement. Brazilian, Barcelona-based Schall's art provides an ideal, exacting visualization of Holt's new world. Volume 2 can't come fast enough!" -Booklist (starred review) "Takes Children-of-Man-meets-AI energy and finds its own place. Everything is just off, and compellingly so. Contemplative, with a beautiful mood throughout." -Kieron Gillen
