Alcon Media Group and Titan Publishing have announced a new partnership focused on the Blade Runner universe, with a variety of both fiction and non-fiction print media including 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.
“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,” said Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
“We are extremely excited to be publishing Blade Runner comics and illustrated books,” added Titan publishers Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung. “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.”
The Ridley Scott-directed Blade Runner was released in 1982, with Denis Villeneuve helming last year’s sequel Blade Runner 2049.
