Christopher Webster [General News 10.04.18] cyberpunk scifi thriller dystopic comic

Alcon Media Group and Titan Publishing are partnering on a new line of comics and even novels based on Ridley Scott's Blade Runner (itself an adaptation of Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep").

The partnership covers both fiction and some non-fiction books, with the fictional material being set in the world of last year’s Blade Runner 2049 which is going to be considered cannon to the overall story.

Now, before you go crazy, word is that Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green is on board to partner with longtime collaborator and comic writer Mike Johnson (STAR TREK) to pen the in-canon comic series. So he should know what makes sense.

In a statement, Titan founders Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung said, "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 honor 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."

Added Alcon co-founders Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove: "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."

Recommended Release: Blade Runner 2049
