Coinciding with the North American release date of the feature film, DC Comics publishes THE TOTAL RECALL MOVIE ADAPTATION by writer Elliot S. Maggin, with art by Tom Lyle. The comics adaptation is based on the Dan O'Bannon and Ron Shusett screenplay for the film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and directed by "RoboCop"'s Paul Verhoeven. Sometimes it pays to have TOTAL RECALL...but sometimes it can get you killed.
Imagine being haunted by dreams of another life, on another planet, with a woman who's not your wife. Then imagine the life you believed you were living here on Earth was the lie...and your 'dreams' of life in the Martian colonies were the reality. That's the problem Doug Quaid faces in the year 2075 in DC's authorized adaptation of the Carolco Pictures film "Total Recall." Because when Quaid begins to explore his dreams, he also discovers that he possesses information that could change the history of two worlds...or could get him killed by the people behind the bizarre realignment of his life.
