Titan Publishing and Alcon Media are to collaborate on new fiction and non-fiction print media that will exist within Blade Runner canon.
Asserting that we’ve only explored the very tip of the iceberg when it comes to the world in which Blade Runner is set, Alcon Media’s founders, Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, issued a joint statement with Titan founders, Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung, that should prove very interesting for fans of the franchise.
Alcon are the production company behind ‘Blade Runner 2049’, a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 original. By teaming up with London based Titan Publishing fans can expect new print media based on the popular science fiction franchise.
The statement reads: “The program will feature new, in canon comics and graphic novels that dive deeper into the Blade Runner world as well as a variety of publications focused on the visual and technical sides of the production process.”
“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.”
A comics adaptation of the original 1982 film was printed by Marvel Comics in the 1980s, but Titan’s involvement now promises new stories that build on the movie universe through serialised comics and graphic novels.
