Titan Comics Reveals the Covers and More Details for Blade Runner 2019

Yesterday (April 10, 2019) is a special date for Blade Runner fans — it’s the exact date of rogue Replicant Leon “Let Me Tell You About My Mother” Kowalski’s inception. (Even casual fans remember Leon as the Nexus-6 synthetic human who shoots the Blade Runner giving him a Voight-Kompff empathy test during the film’s opening sequence inside the imposing Tyrell Corporation double pyramid).

To mark the occasion, Titan Comics and Alcon Entertainment unveiled the first covers and further details for Blade Runner 2019 — a brand-new, in canon series set during the exact timeframe of the original Blade Runner film.

In the polluted and rain-drenched neo-noir nightmare that is Los Angeles, 2019, the veteran Blade Runner known as Ash has a new case: a billionaire’s wife and child, both apparently kidnapped by violent Replicants.

The 12-issue series is being written by acclaimed Blade Runner 2049 screenwriter Michael Green and veteran collaborator Mike Johnson, with interior art by noted artist Andres Guinaldo.

Blade Runner 2019 will debut July 17, 2019.  The first issue—featuring variant covers by Artgerm, Syd Mead, Andres Guinaldo, and John Royle, among others—is available to pre-order through the upcoming May edition (for July shipping) of Diamond PREVIEWS.

Blade Runner 2019 #1 Gets a Cover from Stanley “Artgerm” Lau

Catwoman Gets an Ongoing Series by Joëlle Jones

Announced at C2E2, Joëlle Jones will be taking on Catwoman in her own solo ongoing series. The series will spin out of the “Bat wedding” taking place in Batman #50.

Catwoman’s back on the streets dealing with a mysterious copycat and taking on a brand new, as-yet-unrevealed villain.

The revealed solicitation:

The wedding night’s barely over, but Catwoman’s back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she’s attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham’s most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD. And as if the Bat-Bride didn’t have enough problems, there’s an all-new villain determined to make trouble for all nine of Selina’s lives.

The series will be written by and feature art by Jones with color by Laura Allred and variant covers by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau.

Catwoman #1 will debut in July.

Review: The Mighty Thor #705

The epic showdown years in the making finally explodes across the heavens. Thor battles the unstoppable Mangog, with the fate of all Asgardia hanging in the balance. Is Thor willing to pay the ultimate price in order to save the gods? The tragic and heroic story of Jane Foster finally reaches its heart-rending zenith. You knew it was coming. The Death of Thor is here at last.

The Death of Mighty Thor” comes to this with its sixth part featuring something we all knew was coming but the “how” was still up in the air. Writer Jason Aaron continues his epic story of Thor(s) as the showdown between Mangog and Thor continues to its firey conclusion.

As a piece of the greater story, The Mighty Thor #705 is satisfying in some ways but on its own there’s a lack of emotional punch or takeaway. Without a deep connection to the characters it all feels a little anticlimactic and muted. Whether that’s on purpose or not, it’s an interesting choice and instead of delivering a battle that feels like it could be one for the ages just in this issue alone, instead we get some smarts thrown in to wrap it all up.

The comic though feels like we’ve seen it before with moments and lines that feel repeated. Like Wonder Woman charging across the “No Mans Land,” here we get a similar line and moment of “I am no God.” While it works, much like the comic itself, it’s familiar and in some ways feels a little safe. The entire issue has that in some way.

The art by Russell Dauterman looks beautiful at times but at others it’s difficult to tell exactly what’s going on. I was left staring at pages trying to decipher all of the action though each little bit looks great. That’s partially due to Matthew Wilson‘s coloring which makes the heat feel like it’s coming off of the page.

I can’t say exactly what was expected of the issue but it definitely wasn’t this. While it’s a satisfying conclusion in some ways it also feels like it’s one that’s playing it safe so that Odinson can return to hold the mantle of Thor. Aaron has weaved an epic Thor run and will continue to do so, so in some ways there was an expectation that despite the build up, some different ending might have surprised us. While not a bad issue overall, The Mighty Thor #705 lacks an expected punch.
