Blade Runner #1 Preview
I haven’t even read the review copy sent by Titan Comics, and I’m excited about Blade Runner 2019 #1. Blade Runner is one of the best science fiction films of all time. Now, there’s an ongoing series set in the neo-noir city of Los Angeles. It’s got a great writing team in Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green and Mike Johnson, whose known for Earth 2: World’s End, Superman/Batman, and Supergirl.
The artwork by Andres Guinaldo is fantastic. It’s reminiscent of European comics and classic Heavy Metal. Without doing a full review, I urge you to check out the preview pages. If you like what you see, then pick it up when it shows up in comic shops on July 17th.
