There is a new Blade Runner series coming our way in February, and Titan Comics has released character sketches and cover art for Blade Runner Origins #1.

LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux – a war-scarred veteran of the bloody Off-world conflict, called in to investigate the apparent suicide of a Tyrell Corporation scientist

Ilora Stahl – an executive at the Tyrell Corporation. She’s the head of the research division into Replicant behaviour and the transference of memories.

A senior bioengineer for the Tyrell Corp is found hanging in her sealed laboratory, the victim of an apparent suicide. LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux—a war-scarred veteran of the bloody Off-world conflict known as Kalanthia, as depicted in the “Blackout 2022” Blade Runner anime—is sent to write it up, quickly, quietly and with the minimum of fuss. But something doesn’t sit right with the detective, and it soon becomes apparent that this is anything but a “normal” suicide. Did the scientist’s ground-breaking research on Nexus-model Replicants somehow contribute to her death? And is the apparent disappearance of a prototype Nexus unit also connected to the case? Det. Moreaux’s investigation will draw him into a dark conspiracy behind Dr. Tyrell’s Replicant empire.

BLADE RUNNER ORIGINS #1 will debut with a selection of amazing variant covers, including artwork by artists Peach Momoko, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, a set of retro pulp-style covers by Robert Hack (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) as well as covers by Piotr Kowalski (Bloodborne) and series artist Fernando Dagnino.

Blade Runner Origins #1 arrives on February 24, 2021.
