January is a bullied teenager who finds solace in the embrace of Synthetic Being Rho. Her friends and family are unready to accept this, but when January takes a stand against the prejudice of the law, no-one is prepared for what happens next…

Blink 2 Accept!

Silicon Heart is illustrated by local artist Kat Nicholson, and was funded by a Kickstarter and a grant from Literature Wales.

Testimonials

Silicon Heart, through enchanting art and a wonderfully woven story, has shown us what our art form, at its best, can truly achieve – a story that speaks to the human heart in all of us.” – Art Holcomb (X-Men, The Avengers)

An earthy, promising, post-modern day love story.” – BleedingCool.com

Refreshing, charming and engaging.” – Starburst Magazine

“A banger.” – Awesome Comics Podcast

“Prophetic and profound, Silicon Heart enables us to take a look at our prejudiced and judgemental world with fresh and forward looking eyes.” – Andrew Wildman (Spider-Man, Transformers)

“Evoking classic outsider stories, whether marked by class, race or colour, Sam and Kat give us a heartbeat-away future where synthetic humans (though still overtly robotic) live amongst us.

There’s a back story, hinted at but as yet unrevealed, suggesting a bigger, grimmer aspect to this world- what exactly IS the New Model Army, and why was it needed?- and the casual racism (cog-ism?) goes unquestioned and unremarked. It’s as normal as the driverless cars.

Kat’s sweet, warmly rendered art illuminates a charming tale of the girl-who-doesn’t-fit, where all the humans are self-deluded and the only self-aware character is mechanical. Her style cleverly distracts us from the dark, hidden truths.

Simply gorgeous, and I want more.” – Mike Collins (Doctor Who, Judge Dredd)

“Roads’ and Cardy’s touching, heartfelt tale of teenage love and alienation starts out with the particular and becomes universal.” – Mike Carey (X-Men, Hellblazer)

“Reminded me why I like comics.” – Cosmo White (Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles)

“Subtle world-building.” – Alec Worley (Judge Dredd, Judge Anderson)
