Bereits im Juli wurde verkündet, dass britische Comic Publisher Titan Publishing in Zusammenarbeit mit der Alcon Media Group künftig Comics aus dem „Blade Runner“ Universum publizieren werde.
Im Zuge der New York Comic Con wurden nun mehr Details zum anstehenden Titel verraten. So wird kein Gerinnerer als Michael Green den ersten Comic schreiben, welcher sich u.a. als Drehbuchautor zu Denis Villeneuves Sequel „Blade Runner 2049“ verdiente.
Superhelden-Fans dürfte Green jedoch auch für sein Drehbuch zum fantastischen Wolverine Finale „Logan“ bekannt sein. Der Mann kann also schreiben. Wann der Comic erscheinen werde und mit wem Green dafür zusammenarbeiten wird, ist bisher nicht bekannt.

Titans Publishing veröffentlichte ein vollständige Presse-Statement zur Ankündigung:

NEW YORK, NY, OCTOBER 4, 2018 – Acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green (Logan) will partner with long-term collaborator and comic writer Mike Johnson (Star Trek) to pen the highly-anticipated in-canon Blade Runner comic series for Titan Comics and Alcon Media Group.
In addition to co-writing the screenplay for Blade Runner 2049, the critically-acclaimed sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 celebrated classic Blade Runner, Michael Green’s recent writing credits include Alien: Covenant, Murder on the Orient Express, the hit Starz series American Gods, and Logan, which earned Green an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2018.
Mike Johnson, Green’s co-writer on comics including Supergirl and Superman/ Batman, will co-write the Blade Runner series. A veteran writer of the Star Trek franchise, Johnson’s other comic credits include Transformers and Fringe.

States Green, “Every iteration of the Blade Runner world throws the window open a little wider. Mike and I can’t wait to see what we find outside.”

We’re very excited to have both Michael Green and Mike Johnson writing Titan Comics’ new Blade Runner comic book series. We can’t wait for fans to see their vision,” said Titan’s co-founders, Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung.
Kosove and Johnson add, “Michael Green and Mike Johnson’s clear grasp of the tone and nuance that defines the Blade Runner universe makes them ideal partners on this exciting new comic book venture with Titan Comics. We are eager to continue to expand and explore this fascinating world with such a qualified and talented team.”
The new Blade Runner comic series is part of a new line of comics and graphic novels by Alcon and Titan, which will be canon to the classic science-fiction world.
