Artifice, Alex Woolfson (AMW Comics): In a future where a gay gene has been identified, it is illegal to discriminate against homosexuals, but few gays and lesbians exist, since most parents choose to not to carry such children to term. On a remote planet, one teen has escaped this destiny only to become the sole survivor of an android soldier’s deadly military mission. The two unlikely partners fall in love and the android becomes the boy’s protector. This engaging graphic novel story is told in flashback from through the android’s psychotherapy sessions, in which he is being evaluated by the military to decide if he needs to be deactivated.
