Part Cybernetic ‘The Metamorphosis’ Part ‘Twilight Zone,’ Scout Comics Announces ‘Lost Souls: Haywire’

by Brendan M. Allen

Scout Comics has announced Lost Souls: Haywire, dropping soon from creator Darryl Knickrehm.

‘Bob is a psychiatrist for robots, a psychiatrist who hates his job. Day in and day out he analyzes, certifies and judges the head-spinning drones, the stuttering bots, the self-looping droids – and he’s had enough! All this silicon lunacy is driving him insane. 

Luckily it’s his last day on the job. Unluckily, he may have just botched his escape. He’s made a mistake. A mistake that has brought an unusual patient – one that will judge him. Part cybernetic The Metamorphosis part Chuck Palahniuk-tinged Twilight Zone, get ready for the transgressive cyberpunk whodunit in the shared world of Lost Souls.’

Knickrehm says

Haywire and the whole Lost Souls series has been brewing for over a decade from my experiences living in Japan. I am ecstatic that Scout is as excited as I am to bring Haywire to the world and I am thrilled to be working with them. I can’t wait to see what we’re going to do together.
