Titan Comics has released a fateful first look at BLADE RUNNER 2029 #1.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Following the announcement in September that Titan Comics and Alcon Media Group will be launching a brand-new series, BLADE RUNNER 2029 on December 16, 2020, the continuation of the critically acclaimed series Blade Runner 2019, the award-winning creative team reveal what fans can expect from this new era.
Blade Runner 2029 sees an emotionally changed Ash back with the LAPD’s Blade Runner division. She finds her loyalties and humanity challenged by two Replicants, one offering her salvation, the other deadly damnation.
Prolific comic book creator Mike Johnson, a veteran writer of the Star Trek franchise, whose credits also include Supergirl and Batman/Superman, returns as series writer. Following on from Blade Runner 2019’s hugely successful win in the Scribe Award category for best graphic novel, we asked how Titan’s new series will build upon the success of the first.
States Johnson “Ten years after the events of the first Blade Runner movie and our initial story arc in Blade Runner 2019, Los Angeles has become an idyllic utopia free from crime and despair, full of happy people who – – sorry, what I meant to say is that in Blade Runner 2029 everything is worse. New villains, new victims, new noir. But Ash is still on the case.”
Titan and Alcon are also excited to be releasing some never-before-seen artwork from the upcoming series by returning artist Andres Guinaldo. Speaking ahead of the new series, Andres detailed his excitement for what’s to come…
“Starting to work on twelve new issues of this saga, Blade Runner 2029, has given me so much satisfaction recently. We make a time jump to see how our protagonist, Ash, has evolved. The Blade Runner world keeps expanding and it’s a pleasure to be a part of it.”
This hotly anticipated issue #1 is set to debut in comic stores and digital devices on December 16, 2020 with a range of amazing variant covers to collect, including artwork by superstar artist Peach Momoko, John Wick artist Giovanni Valletta plus much more!
