Blade Runner 2049 scribe to write Blade Runner comic series for Titan

I don't know about you, but I dug the hell out of the recent BLADE RUNNER sequel BLADE RUNNER 2049. I thought it was more than a worthy addition to the series. And if you're like me, then you'll be excited to hear that the sequel's screenwriter Michael Green will partner with longtime collaborator and comic writer Mike Johnson (STAR TREK) to pen a highly-anticipated in-canon BLADE RUNNER comic series for Titan Comics and Alcon Media Group.

In addition to co-writing the screenplay for BLADE RUNNER 2049, Michael Green’s recent writing credits include ALIEN: COVENANT, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, AMERICAN GODS, and LOGAN, which earned Green an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2018.

Mike Johnson, Green’s co-writer on comics including SUPERGIRL and SUPERMAN/BATMAN will co-write the BLADE RUNNER series. A veteran writer of the STAR TREK franchise, Johnson’s other comic credits includes TRANSFORMERS and FRINGE.

Michael Green:

Every iteration of the Blade Runner world throws the window open a little wider. Mike and I can’t wait to see what we find outside.

Titan’s co-founders, Nick Landau, and Vivian Cheung:

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.

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.

The new BLADE RUNNER comic series is part of a new line of comics and graphic novels by Alcon and Titan, which will be canon to the classic science-fiction world. We'll let you know when we hear more. Until then, make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited YOU are for Michael Green and Mike Johnson's upcoming BLADE RUNNER comic book series!
