This works as a great comic book adaption of the movie for younger readers. For adults, it's a little like reading the Cliffs Notes for a book you already understand, but it's still a fun summary for fans of Blade Runner. The short length prevents this from capturing the beauty of the movie script, and the art is cool, but is in b&w newsprint rather than glossy photo common these days, so that fails to capture the beauty of film's cinematography

Some things get better with age, while others just don't seem to stand the test of time. Thankfully, Marvel Comics' adaptation of the 1982 cult classic film, Blade Runner, leans pretty heavily in the direction of the former. Granted, when judged by the standards of comics produced in the past decade or so, the full color inking doesn't quite measure up to today's computer generated standards. But make no mistake; this is still a beautifully crafted piece of vintage comic art. And the writing is ...more

Quick and fun!

In many ways, I prefer this paperback version to the comic book, because it's in black and white only. Some of the images had to be trimmed, of course, and one misses the large-format, comic book layouts. But the comic book colors dulled the sharpness of the inks, which can be seen in their full glory in this version.

Although I have not seen the film recently, this adaptation seemed to capture the plot and images quite well. It was almost like watching the movie in fast-forward mo

It's amazing how Marvel was able to take brilliant source material like Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Blade Runner and produce such a remarkably lame illustrated "novel". The art, the writing...just astonishingly bad. Do yourself a favor and go to the originals, not this churned-out piece of garbage.

Curiosa adaptación de Archie Goodwin al cómic. Tiene multitud de apuntes que amplían la historia original como el por qué Deckard dejó de ser un Blade Runner o decenas de detalles como la enfermedad del hígado de Bryant que hace que Deckard beba por él cada vez que se reúnen. Una rareza para amantes de la película y para mí fue un regalazo tener este ejemplar en grapa con fecha de un año anterior a que yo naciese.

I get that they had a limited number of pages to do this.
The art is nice even though it's printed ion newsprint instead of the fancy new glossy paper we see nowadays.
Goodwin does a fine adaptation within the low amount of pages given.
Overall, I would have liked to see what we could have gotten if they had been given a limitless number of pages to work with.
