Electric Thinker

"Electric Thinker" from Electric Warrior #6 (DC, 1986) by Doug Moench and Jim Baikie
Though the prose is obviously purple, and the art isn't particularly memorable, this 18-issue series does seem more relevant today than when it was originally published. In the future, the top 1% has cyborg servants - Electric Warriors - keeping the 99% down in the dregs. A lone Warrior breaks his conditioning and grows a conscience, something in short supply across humanity of any class. DC's 1980s forays into science fiction are all to be rediscovered, I think.
