"Blade Runner: Origins"

Titan Comics prequel title "Blade Runner: Origins", available February 2021, is written by Mike Johnson, K. Perkins and Mellow Brown, with illustrations by Fernando Dagnino and variant covers from Stanley "Artgerm" Lau, Peach Momoko and Robert Hack: 

" 'Blade Runner Origins', a female, senior bio-engineer for the 'Tyrell Corp' is found hanging in a sealed laboratory, the victim of an apparent suicide. 'LAPD Detective Cal Moreaux' — a battle-hardened vet of the 'Off-world' conflict 'Kalanthia', is sent to write it up, quickly, quietly and with a minimum of fuss. 

"But something doesn't sit right with the detective and it soon becomes apparent this is anything but a 'normal' suicide. Did the scientist's ground-breaking research on 'Nexus'-model 'Replicants' somehow contribute to her death? And is the apparent disappearance of a prototype Nexus unit also connected to the case? Det. Moreaux’s investigation will draw him into a dark conspiracy behind the 'Dr. Tyrell' Replicant empire..."
