Captain's Library BLADE RUNNER Conclusion

...actually, we'll be seeing what causes what we see in this Brent Anderson cover art shortly.
But, to recap...
Blade Runner Rick Deckard is closing in on replicant leader Roy Batty and his followers...
Adapted by writer Archie Goodwin, pencilers Al Williamson & Carlos Garzon, and inkers Williamson, Dan Green & Ralph Reese.
Considering the comic creators were working off a script, some stills, and a few film clips, it's an amazing job that conveys a lot of the "feel" of the movie without the creatives having seen the movie itself!
There's no comics adaptation of the new movie, Blade Runner 2049.
There are several "prequel" anime shorts that take place between the first film and this one.

Captain's Library BLADE RUNNER Part 3

...ok, that covers it!
On with the story...
Note: The first page in this post is from the second issue of the two-part regular-comic reprint of Marvel Super Special #22.
The page (which isn't in Marvel Super Special #22) was done to synopsize the story when it was split for the two-issue reprint.
The reprint was on standard, cheaper, newsprint rather than the slick paper the Special was printed on, so the reproduction isn't as clean and sharp as the rest of the tale.
Adapted by writer Archie Goodwin, pencilers Al Williamson & Carlos Garzon, and inkers Williamson, Dan Green & Ralph Reese.

Captain's Library BLADE RUNNER Part 2

Ex-"blade runner" Rick Deckard is brought out of retirement to hunt down dangerous "replicants" (super-powerful androids created to work and fight wars off-world) who have come to Earth, but they're a step or two ahead of him!
Adapted by writer Archie Goodwin, pencilers Al Williamson & Carlos Garzon, and inkers Williamson, Dan Green & Ralph Reese, Marvel Super Special #22 (1982) is a mixture of storytelling elements that mostly work in print and occasionally don't.

Captain's Library BLADE RUNNER Part 1

With the new flick Blade Runner 2049 debuting this week...
...we're re-presenting the long-lost comics adaptation that's almost as much of a masterpiece as the movie itself!
So this is how we saw 2019 in 1982!
From our current perspective in 2017, the movie got some things sort of right, like a low-tech version of the Internet...and some things wrong, like interstellar travel!
