Quality movie tie-ins are rare, and I’m extremely pleased to say that this is one of the best I’ve read. A lot of tie-ins skimp on the artwork — Expanse: Origins, I’m looking at you — but this series, thankfully, understands just how pivotal and elemental the visuals of Blade Runner have been to every story told in this universe. The original 1982 film set the scene, the brilliant point-and-click 1997 video game produced by Westwood Studios showed the darker corners, Villenueve’s striking sequel ...more

With Ridley Scott we got some classic movies one of the them being "Blade Runner" which gave us Rutger Hauer as a Replicant being hunted by the Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) and he stole the sun from Ford in his immortal performance that showed the inhumanity through the eyes of creature created by mankind to do the heavy lifting and war, basically slaves without any rights. With Blade Runner 2049 we got a further look into the universe of the Replicant who are by far more ...more

Really enjoyed this volume of this new Blade Runner series! This comic really captures the cyberpunk atmosphere of the films. The main character Ash is a cool character and it made me want to see her live through to the end. The artwork could be better, but otherwise, this was a good first volume!

The artwork is stunning - true to the Blade Runner universe.

The story is captivating and Vol. 1 ends at a very interesting point. Gives us a quick peek into the next issue but does not reveal anything.

'Ash' is only getting better with every issue, from a regular blade runner in #Issue 1 to a complete badass in #Issue 4.

In 2019 Los Angeles detective Aahna "Ash" Ashina is looking for a missing mother & her daughter in a new graphic novel from the Blade Runner franchise.
Michael Green (the screenwriter of Blade Runner 2049) comes up with a story that thankfully avoids excessive references to the original Blade Runner. However, Green's writing is overshadowed by the superb artwork of Andres Guinaldo which is excellent throughout. A sequel will follow next year. Until then, have a better one.

A Blade Runner in the year 2019 accepts a commission to find a missing woman and her daughter. Of course, it's never quite that simple.

All that you would expect from the franchise, hard boiled noir, cyberpunk styling, crises of conscience. A worthy addition to the canon.

Read through Hoopla.

Read as single issues monthly and didn't really connect with the material. Read again in its entirety after the final issue was released and it was phenomenal.

I'd highly recommend this to Blade Runner fans.

Good story, interesting artworks (but not as stunning as I expected) I'll keep on reading

I have always been a sucker for blade runner - right from the first time I saw the original film on its first ever UK TV airing - I was enthralled.

And so years later I always eager to read and watch stories which add to the whole universe - from the next film to the novelisations and now to the graphic novels. I think I am fascinated as much by the world the characters inhabit as much as the characters themselves (who cannot recognise the Syd Mead spinners which to this day are still as iconic

This was a pleasant surprise. This volume manages to nail the tone and themes of Blade Runner, in a manner that is in keeping with the original movie and also manages to frame the themes in a very timely manner. We have another Blade Runner with a secret sent to investigate a case that is supposedly a missing persons situation but ends up related to her focus. Tyrell shows up prominently, and themes of Corporates standing above the law, class issues between the workers and the upper-crust, and ...more

Fantastic. Great story and art. Remains true to the Blade Runner universe without feeling like retread. The new Blade Runner Ash is compelling with a backstory that invests her in the current storyline believably. Plus, no Dekkard means the story can push without being hemmed in too much by the movies. Always liked the gritty imperfection and moral ambiguity of this future world: heroes that actually get hurt and make mistakes ; replicants being labeled bad, but were they made that way by ...more

Awesome book. My only complaint was that this only has the first four issues and it was just enough to hold me by for new Blade Runner content. If you’re a fan of the movie both the original and it’s sequel there will be something special for you in this. I know I can’t get enough of Blade Runner. The main character in this (Ash) is interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing her grow.

Had too high of expectations cause its, well, Blade Runner. The art didn't really convey the fantastic atmosphere of BR. But I'll def read the next one.
