    The classic science fiction film Blade Runner has spawned quite few graphic novel spin offs recently. I enjoyed all three volumes of Blade Runner 2019 & the first volume of Blade Runner 2029 was very promising. Now we have a new story with Blade Runner: Origins. So, what went wrong ? This prequel sees the birth of the Blade Runner department & presents us with a collection of new characters. Sadly I couldn't engage with any of the characters or the plot.

I enjoyed all three volumes of Blade Runner 2019 & the first volume of Blade Runner 2029 was very promising. Now we have a new story with Blade Runner: Origins. So, what went wrong ? This prequel sees the birth of the Blade Runner department & presents us with a collection of new characters. Sadly I couldn't engage with any of the characters or the plot. The two star rating I have given is for the artwork alone, as the story & characterisations are pretty lacklustre. Hopefully other people will enjoy this graphic novel, but it had little to keep my attention. Perhaps there are now too many Blade Runner stories in print. It's a little like releasing too many Star Wars films in a short space of time & you end up with the hugely disappointing Solo. Too many Blade Runner spin offs seem to have evoked the law of diminishing returns.

    Unlike BladeRunner 2019 this story arc does not have that feeling of completeness. Starting years before Ash we follow our detective Cal Moreau as he tries to solve the mysterious case of suicide of one of Tyrell Corp highest ranking scientists working on Nexus 5 Replicant product line. What starts as a suicide slowly (and I mean slowly) evolves into something more sinister and soon we find Cal trying to stay alive and evade Tyrell Corp security people.

Starting years before Ash we follow our detective Cal Moreau as he tries to solve the mysterious case of suicide of one of Tyrell Corp highest ranking scientists working on Nexus 5 Replicant product line. What starts as a suicide slowly (and I mean slowly) evolves into something more sinister and soon we find Cal trying to stay alive and evade Tyrell Corp security people. Problem with this book is that it is not ..... relaxed would be a word. I haven't read a book so tense, teeth grinding and constantly on the verge of scream and agony - and for no reason whatsoever. At least reason cannot be discerned from the book itself. There are flashbacks for Cal's past and some twist and turns but they all seem half-baked, no conclusion in them - what do they mean, what is their importance? Hopefully story will get better defined in volume #2. All in all interesting read, but in need of some story-wise polishing. Art is good, giving same look and feel as 2019 story line. You definitely feel you are reading about same futuristic world in these two books. Recommended to fans of noir and SF. Only beware, this book is more like a warm-up for what is to come.

    Hmmm ­čĄö - not really sure what to make of this take on the Blade Runner universe. It doesnÔÇÖt feel as strong or as compelling as the 2019/2029 books.

    Surprisingly, this series has been less popular with reviewers than the other BLADE RUNNER offerings from Titan Comics. For me, this is the series that grabs my interest, from the characters, the storyline, and the atmospheric art. This takes place ten years before the events of the BLADE RUNNER film, and relates the early days of the Tyrell Corporation into the Nexus phase of robot/android development.

For me, this is the series that grabs my interest, from the characters, the storyline, and the atmospheric art. This takes place ten years before the events of the BLADE RUNNER film, and relates the early days of the Tyrell Corporation into the Nexus phase of robot/android development. The alleged suicide of a Tyrell bioengineer brings detective Cal Moreaux into the investigation. His work reveals a cover-up and a murder committed by a Nexus 5 prototype. This first story arc is a well-written introduction to the continuing story, and holds a lot of promise for great things to come.

    Good stuff. After the 2019 - 2029 series we now have 2009. Loving it. The artwork is lush and the colours neon and apt. The story is very good and all adding to a worthy canon.

    Titan makes it very easy to enter the world of blade runner again and this story has great atmosphere and characterization. One of my favorite series right now.

    Not as strong as other Titan BR comics, but still worth a look for those that dig the universe.
