publications focused on the visual and technical sides of the production process.

States Kosove and Johnson, “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.”
“We are extremely excited to be publishing Blade Runner comics and illustrated
books,” said Titan publishers Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung. “The Blade Runner
universe 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.”
