About Made in Korea:

A Korean nine-year-old named Jesse is adopted and sent to live with a lovely couple in America. Socially awkward, yet equipped with a seemingly encyclopedic brain, 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. Collects Made in Korea issues #1-6.

Made in Korea trade paperback (ISBN: 978-1-5343-2011-6, Diamond Code NOV210134) will be available on Wednesday, January 26 and in bookstores on Tuesday, February 1. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore or via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.

Made in Korea is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
