Titan Comics announced in July that it would be working with the Alcon Media Group to bring in continuity Blade Runner comics to readers, and today the publisher has announced Blade Runner 2049 writer Michael Green will team with Mike Johnson on the first Blade Runner comic book series.
In the press release from Titan Comics, there is the expected level of back-slapping and praise to be shared.
“We’re very excited to have both Michael Green and Mike Johnson writing Titan Comics’ new Blade Runner comic book series. We can’t wait for fans to see their vision,” said Titan’s co-founders, Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung.
Kosove and Johnson add, “Michael Green and Mike Johnson’s clear grasp of the tone and nuance that defines the Blade Runner universe makes them ideal partners on this exciting new comic book venture with Titan Comics. We are eager to continue to expand and explore this fascinating world with such a qualified and talented team.”
Now that we know who the writers are, we expect to hear about artists very soon.
