Titan and Alcon Entertainment are set to launch the latest chapter of their in-canon Blade Runner comic books this month as they take a trip back in time to the world of 2009 – ten years prior to the events of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece – for Blade Runner Origins.
Chekc out the official trailer for the series, which is written by Mike Johnson (Blade Runner 2019), K. Perkins (Supergirl) and Mellow Brown (American Gods) with art from Fernando Dagnino (Suicide Squad)…
A senior bioengineer for the Tyrell Corp is found hanging in her sealed laboratory, the victim of an apparent suicide. LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux—a war-scarred veteran of the bloody Off-world conflict known as Kalanthia, as depicted in the “Blackout 2022” Blade Runner anime—is sent to write it up, quickly, quietly and with the minimum of fuss. But something doesn’t sit right with the detective, and it soon becomes apparent that this is anything but a “normal” suicide. Did the scientist’s ground-breaking research on Nexus-model Replicants somehow contribute to her death? And is the apparent disappearance of a prototype Nexus unit also connected to the case? Det. Moreaux’s investigation will draw him into a dark conspiracy behind Dr. Tyrell’s Replicant empire.
Blade Runner Origins #1 will go on sale on February 24th 2021.
