In Blade Runner 2019: Off World, the graphic novel sequel to Ridley Scott’s acclaimed 1982 dystopian sci-fi film, Ash Ashina, a blade runner or bounty hunter charged with tracking down and destroying bioengineered humanoids known as replicants, has separated from Cleo, the daughter of business tycoon Alexander Selwyn, whom she rescued and transported to the Off World colonies.

In this excerpt, it’s seven years later and Ash has been tracked by Hythe, a new and typically ruthless Blade Runner hired in the wake of a violent replicant uprising.

Blade Runner 2019 by Michael Green and Mike Johnson, with art by Andres Guinaldo, will be published this month by Titan Comics.
