Entertainment Weekly have exclusively revealed that Titan Comics will be the home of Blade Runner comic book and graphic novel tie-ins exploring the shady film-noir world of Alcon Media Group’s popular cult film universe. The plans seem to be to publish titles set in the Blade Runner continuity while also offering non-fiction reading too. Y’know, manuals and such that delve deeper into the world, cultures and technologies of this future dystopia.
Titan publishers Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung had this to say about this new joint venture:
The Blade Runneruniverse has barely been explored; there is so much more there. It’s an honour 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.
I imagine there’s enough hardcore fans out there who’d buy into this and, who knows, there may be new fans as a result of the comics and books to come. Will you be tempted, I wonder?
