Titan Comics alongside Alcon Media Group announced a brand new Blade Runner series with Blade Runner 2029.
This new series continues Titan Comics’ Blade Runner story that began with Blade Runner 2019 and is an official sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic film.
Blade Runner 2029 will be written by Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green alongside co-writer Mike Johnson. They are joined by artist Andres Guinaldo and colorist Marco Lesko.
The series follows the LAPD’s most lethal Blade Runner, Detective Aahna “Ash” Ashina as she return to the streets hunting down renegade Replicants. While hunting down Replicants she is challenged by two of them with one offering her salvation and the other deadly damnation.
Series editor David Leach teased the series saying, “In this era of the Blade Runner comic, we see Ash becoming more human, which, I think is fascinating. The initial idea of this killing machine learning humility and humanity from a bioengineered individual is amazing.”
Blade Runner 2029 #1 will feature a number of different covers from artists Peach Momoko, John Wick artist Giovanni Valletta, a Syd Mead concept cover, and more.
The first issue of the series is expected to arrive on comic book shelves on December 16, 2020.
