Blade Runner 2019 is the first comic to tell original, in-canon stories set in the Blade Runner universe, which was established way back in 1982 in Ridley Scott’s original, Harrison Ford-starring film. The comic comes from Academy Award nominated screenwriter Michael Green (Blade Runner 2049, Logan, American Gods), with longtime co-writer Mike Johnson (Batman/Superman, Supergirl, Star Trek). Blade Runner 2019 is illustrated by Andres Guinaldo (Justice League Dark, Captain America).

Blade Runner 2019 issue #1 will be released on July 17. The debut issue comes with five covers to collect, including one which features original Blade Runner concept art by Syd Mead.
