    Another decent volume from this series! I love how this series captures the grit and dirtiness of the original film so well! The artwork is also warming up to me as I feel it fits with the Blade Runner aesthetic. As for story, this one was okay, not as interesting as the first volume, but it still made me want to keep reading this series!

    I really have to stop getting distracted by the latest deliveries and dropping everything to read them! However I have to admit that this was worth it. Now Blade Runner the original film was a film that made a huge impact on me - from the fact I caught glimpses of it while visiting family so I had to wait (and I am terrible at waiting) to see the film. The fact that the immensely talented Syd Mead had so much influence on the appearance of the film (my brothers all time hero illustrator and desi I really have to stop getting distracted by the latest deliveries and dropping everything to read them! However I have to admit that this was worth it. Now Blade Runner the original film was a film that made a huge impact on me - from the fact I caught glimpses of it while visiting family so I had to wait (and I am terrible at waiting) to see the film. The fact that the immensely talented Syd Mead had so much influence on the appearance of the film (my brothers all time hero illustrator and designer) and the fact that at the time it was still a smouldering classic yet to reach its full potential. So to see that a new graphic novel was coming out - well be still my beating heart. And here we are the second issue of the graphic novel editions in and I just as impressed. For a media potentially a million miles away from the original film this book has all the feel and emotion as the original film (not a surprise considering Mr Mead had a hand in it). The story is still fast paced if a little predictable but you know what, rather than being a problem I suspect that is part of a larger storyline - I suspect there is a lot more to go with this story and we are only just getting started. Now I am sure I could find out how long this series is planned for but you know what no I will ride this one out. And the fun does not stop there either - as is usual with these books they give a hint of where they will go next - well in this one you have a Syd Mead original and the title - Home again, home again...

    The second story in this graphic novel series from the Blade Runner universe takes place in 2026, seven years after the opening story. The artwork is as good as ever, & although the story has moved away somewhat from the films that inspired it I still found it very entertaining. An addad bonus at the end of the story was an obituary of the Blade Runner films legendary designer Syd Mead. I'm pleased to see that Blade Runner 2019 is not over yet.

    Really enjoyed this volume. My only complaint it felt a bit short but it was the same 4 issues, maybe the complaint is I just wanted more. The art work is more anime styled. 7 years have passed since the last book. The world has changed but has it just become more dangerous. There is now a war on, and wars never are about collateral damage of those hiding. Ash must face a reckoning 7 years in the making. Great story, like the artwork, enough action can't wait for the next volume. Finishes with a c Really enjoyed this volume.

    Fantastic continuation of the first story. Move over Deckard and K, everyone’s favourite Blade Runner should be Ashina from here on.

    I bet they kind of wished they had left 2019 off title when they got here; considering the main story takes place 7 years later, it's a weird inconsistency.

There's a lot of action here, and a fair bit of plot that moves quickly but is understandable. There's one plot hole revolving around a returned character that seems hand-waved away, but other than that, the book works well, giving motivations, goals, and stakes to both the humans and replicants. The art doesn't feel quite as 'Blade Runner'-esque for most of the book, but it has more to do with location than the artist's style - later issues recapture some of the feel in their setting. I also appreciated the obituary for Sid Mead as his designs are so central to the look and feel of the series.

    Entertaining enough, but not nearly as good as volume one. The narrative awkwardly jumps back and forth in time, and the artwork is much more drab and less finished than the previous collection.

За нейно съжаление, пореден бунт на репликанти разделя нея и Клео. А бащата на момичето – бизнес магната Александър Сълуин, все още не се е отказал от това да я открие и изпраща втори Блейд Рънър – безскрупулната Хайт, да открие Ашина и да я принуди да ѝ помогне да върне детето на Земята.

    Man, this moved fast. I am a slow reader: I like to reflect as I read and savor the art. I did a double take when even I covered over 60 pages in 15 minutes. Made me have to go back and check if I missed something, which I hate. I didn’t. Everything is more skeletal this time, art/story. Sad. The tribute to one of the effects designers for Blade Runner who passed felt more fleshed out. Will still continue the series, but I hope it finishes strong.

    Pretty good, but didn't quite connect with me like the first volume. Story takes a time and venue jump. On the plus side it lets you explore more of Blade Runner's extended world, but I felt like "the off world colonies" just looked and felt like an extension of the Blade Runner LA we've already seen. I think they missed a chance to develop something that felt like it was part of the universe, but decidedly off-Earth and unique.

    И смея да твърдя, че Блейд Рънър е една от най-интересните вселени във фантастиката. А всяка една история добавя още фрагменти към цялостната картина.

    Reasonably brisk. I assume it’ll wrap up at 12 and then be published as another trade and a collected hardcover. The catalogue of alternate covers in the back makes me actively angry.

    I’m a sucker for this world. Short, closed narrative. I hear there’s a few spin-offs coming (2009, 2029)

    I'll always appreciate more time in this world. I enjoyed the look at "Off-World" in the Blade Runner universe, however brief.

    That was a tight little classic Cyberpunk story. All the problems with the story in volume one gone. The story was clear even with flashbacks. The art was solid. Good stuff!
