99 // A Future Past: Interviewing Senior Creative Editor at Titan Comics - David Leach

May 4, 2021

It’s been two years since David Leach, Senior Creative Editor at Titan Comics, has been on Shoulder of Orion. Since then, he’s shepherded not only the complete run of Blade Runner 2019, but launched two other titles as well (Blade Runner 2029 and Blade Runner Origins). 

Along the way, he and his collaborators have garnered industry awards, won over fans around the world, and added several memorable new characters to the imaginations of Blade Runner aficionados everywhere. 

Join Jaime, Patrick, and Dan as they chat with David about all this and more on this rollicking interview.

98 // Minisode: Gaff in Blade Runner 2049 (You’ve Never Seen a Miracle: The Journey to 2049 Part 11)

April 20, 2021

In the weeks leading up to Blade Runner 2049's release, word spread that Edward James Olmos had been on set. For Blade Runner fans around the globe, this was huge news: Gaff is one of the most enduringly popular characters in the first film, and has become a central character of fan theories, artwork, and more over the past three and a half decades.

The Gaff we see in 2049 is one many of us didn't expect. But his appearance, totaling just over one minute of screen time, is unforgettable. 

In this minisode, Jaime and Patrick take some time off from feverish Alien Day preparations (April 26—follow Perfect Organism for details!) to discuss Gaff's appearance in 2049. This is just the tip of a deeper Gaff iceberg to come, as we plan on dedicating a full episode to his character in the near future.

What is empathy? Why does the character of Ana Stelline feel so different tonally from the rest of the players in Blade Runner 2049? What makes her feel different? Join Jaime, Patrick, and Dan as we dive head first into a conversation about memory and dreams, birth and death, captured so beautifully in the character of Dr. Stelline.

January 26, 2021

For years, we have been fascinated by the spiritual and philosophical ramifications of Blade Runner. What we haven’t explored, however, are the details of Replicant production.

How are Replicants made? Are they assembled, or grown? How are they different from us?

Join us in this first in a series of episodes where we explore the nuances of Replicant design, development, and creation.
