‘Blade Runner: Origins #1’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by K Perkins, Melloe Brown, Mike Johnson | Art by Fernando Dagnino | Published by Titan Comics You can of course never have enough of a good thing. With Blade Runner, this is most definitely true. The ongoing Blade Runner 2019/ 2029 book has been superb, building a world that is pure living and […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #2’ Review (Titans Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Last issue saw the book jump ahead a decade, allowing for a shakeup in the status quo of both Ash and the world she inhabits. This is deliberate, as this series I’m assuming was always intended to show how the 2019 […]

‘Blade Runner 2029 #1’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics The ‘jump ahead in time’ storytelling technique is an oldie but goodie. By taking your already established characters and stories and then moving them forward you open up storyline possibilities moving both forwards and backwards. What’s the world like now? What’s […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #12’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics So, this is the wrap up of what has been essentially one over arching storyline, albeit one split between three story arcs. A beginning, middle, and end if you will. The best thing this first year has done has been to […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #11’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics If one central theme has run through the first year of this book, it is trust. Who should you trust? Who can you trust? When you are dealing with Replicants, that’s no great surprise I guess. People Blade Runner Ash should […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #10’ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Mike Johnson | Art by Andrea Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics I notice a slight change in the credits this issue, the first change we’ve seen in the ten issues published, including this one. Not a big one, but Mike Johnson is now writing the book solo, with Michael Green stepping down […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #9’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Was last issue a happy ending? I think so. It took 8 issues and several years in-story, but Cleo finally got her happy ending, a new start with her ‘mother’ Cleo on Arcadia. Ash’s story was more of a […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #8’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Incredibly, the last issue of this book that came out was back in March. Wonder what caused the delay… As pleased as I am that the book is back up and running, it was definitely not a welcome break. […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #7’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics This arc, as I mentioned last time round, took something of a left turn by taking place several years after the first story, and by transferring the action off world. On top of that, the big bad Tyrell Corporation […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #6’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Second story arcs are always tricky, maintaining that initial enthusiasm and buzz, but the new story arc Green and Johnson started last issue was a doozy. They took all the things that everyone really enjoyed from the first 4 […]

‘Blade Runner 2019 #5’ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Well this is a refreshingly quick return to everybody’s favourite dystopian near future.

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics Two issues in, this book has been as wild a ride as the one Ash finds herself in at the beginning of this issue. Her Spinner, you may recall, was crashed into in mid-air on the final page of […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Michael Green, Mike Johnson | Art by Andres Guinaldo | Published by Titan Comics For a quick ten points, any idea why Titan have chosen now to launch this book? No Google, please.
