Blade Runner #2
The story of Rick Deckard continues in the second issue of the 1982 Marvel Comics adaptation. The artwork by Al Williamson and Carlos Garzon really is a thing of beauty. Plus, I love how Archie Goodwin captured the futuristic wasteland feel of the book. Making sure to have Deckard be the narrator, as he was in at least one version of the film, was the right move.
Pretty much the only thing I have left to watch before going to the movies tomorrow is the trio of short films that are supposed to bridge the original film with 2049. Looking forward to it.
Really, if you are a fan of the series, you need this two-issue miniseries. It's beautifully illustrated, masterfully told, and just the right thing to whet your Blade Runner appetite when you don't have quick access to the Ridley Scott classic.
Rating: 10 out of 10 stars.
