Titan Comics and Alcon Entertainment have unveiled the first covers and further details for Blade Runner 2019 — a brand-new, in canon series set during the exact timeframe of the original Blade Runner film.

In the polluted and rain-drenched neo-noir nightmare that is Los Angeles, 2019, the veteran Blade Runner known as Ash has a new case: a billionaire’s wife and child, both apparently kidnapped by violent Replicants.

The 12-issue series is being written by acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green (Logan) and veteran collaborator Mike Johnson (Star Trek, Superman/Batman), with interior art by noted artist Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark, Captain America).

The new Blade Runner 2019 comic series is part of a line of original comics and graphic novels by Titan and Alcon, expanding the canon of this celebrated science-fiction world.

Watch for further announcements about this bold new slate of Blade Runner comics in the coming months.
