Titan Comics and Alcon Media Group have announced the next chapter in their critically acclaimed Blade Runner comic book series, Blade Runner 2029, is set to launch this December, continuing the saga of the LAPD’s most lethal Blade Runner, Detective Aahna “Ash” Ashina. Here’s the cover artwork to the first issue from artist Peach Momoko…
Following the dramatic events of the first arc, BLADE RUNNER 2029 sees an emotionally changed Ash back with the LAPD’s Blade Runner division and once again on the streets hunting renegade Replicants. She finds her loyalties and humanity challenged by two Replicants, one offering her salvation, the other deadly damnation.
“In this era of the Blade Runner comic, we see Ash becoming more human, which, I think is fascinating,” states editor David Leach. “The initial idea of this killing machine learning humility and humanity from a bioengineered individual is amazing.”
Blade Runner 2029 features the return of Blade Runner 2019 creative team of Michael Green (Blade Runner 2049) and Mike Johnson (Star Trek), artist Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark) and colorist Marco Lesko (Doctor Who).
