    This story line has been refreshing. I literally cannot wait to drink in each issue as I was a fan of the Harrison Ford original. But Ash…Ash fits like a glove in this Blade Runner environment. This is cutting edge science fiction pulp noir. Read Full Review

    BLADE RUNNER 2029 #2, available from Titan Comics on January 13th, 2021, exemplifies the best in hard-boiled detective crime noir, fitting perfectly in the Blade Runner universe. The art is sharp and emotive, and the writing keeps the reader invested through every page. Read Full Review

    A gripping second chapter that expands upon this story's own mystery, as well as the lore of the Blade Runner universe in stellar fashion. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 17, 2021

    Blade Runner 2029 #2 slams the brakes on its main plot, which leads to a rather uneventful issue with glacial pacing but impressive visuals. Hopefully next issue will provide a change of pace. Read Full Review

    Ash is back on the beat, but not quite as orthodox as before. She'll let a replicant slide here and there. And that gets her access that she wouldn't otherwise have. Now, she's tracking down a death at the under-construction seawall, and it doesn't look like the death is a replicant. This issue represents a ton of gumshoe sleuthing, and that means world building as we see even more of the Blade Runner world.

    Andres Guinaldo's art is really strong in this issue; in fact, I'd suggest the Peach Momoko cover is the least impressive art in the book. Guinaldo's coming into his own, and that's exciting on a book that can be as visually wild as this.

    Not my favorite issue ever, but one that I can appreciate as a means more

    The replicant speakeasy is reminiscent of the underground bars that the LGBTQI community used to frequent to have fun under the radar.
