The BLADE RUNNER Universe Will Be Explored in a New Series of Comic Books
If you're a fan of the Blade Runner franchise I've got some great news for you! While I highly doubt we'll ever see another Blade Runner movie again, we will be getting a series of comic books that will explore the Blade Runner universe!
Alcon Media Group and London-based Titan Publishing are partnering up to make this happen and they will develop and publish a variety of both fiction and non-fiction print media. According to the press release:
The program will feature new, in canon comics and graphic novels that dive deeper into the Blade Runner world as well as a variety of publications focused on the visual and technical sides of the production process.
Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove had this to say in a joint statement:
"In partnering with the exceptional Titan Comics and Titan Books, we’re confident that the world of Blade Runner will continue to organically grow in a way that refuses to sacrifice the quality, tone and high standards of this beloved property."
Titan publishers Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung added:
"We are extremely excited to be publishing Blade Runner comics and illustrated books. The Blade Runner universe has barely been explored; there is so much more there. It’s an honour to be bringing this world to life in new ways for a new audience – and to reveal tales from that universe that you’ve never seen before.”
It's going to be pretty awesome to see these comic book dive deep into the world of Blade Runner. I can't wait to see what stories they will tell and what characters they will introduce.
