Blade Runner 2019 #6 is the sixth issue of Blade Runner 2019.


"In 2019, the Blade Runner AAHNA "ASH" ASHINA rescued CLEO SELWYN, daughter of agribusiness tycoon ALEXANDER SELWYN, from a plot to give the girl to the Tyrell Corporation for genetic experimentation.

Ash and Cleo travelled OFF-WORLD, taking on new identities to hide from Cleo's father. Ash found work in lunar mining operations, far from prying eyes, but alongside the REPLICANTS she used to hunt.

In 2022, Replicant production was banned altogether. Remaining NEXUS 8 units were permitted to live out their lifespans in service to their owners in the colonies. Following the BLACKOUT, the Tyrell Corporation went bankrupt.

In 2026, Ash's mining colony is attacked by [
sic] group of rogue Nexus 8 models, who free their Replicant comrades and destroy the ship Ash and Cleo are stationed on. Cleo survives thanks to PADRAIC, a sympathetic Replicant, and together they flee into space with the renegades..."

Ash is recovered from the carnage left by a Nexus-8 uprising as Cleo is taken to Pellam – the leader of the Nexus-8 group – by Padraic. Pellam wants her to retrieve transit ciphers and she tells them the nearest location is at Ramanuja.

Ash is subjected to the Voight-Kampff test by Blade Runner Hythe, who knows her true identity and that she is wanted for the murder of Isobel Selwyn. However, Ash completely denies her true identity, insisting that she is Darja Kady.

The replicant group reaches Ramanuja as Ash decides that she is done running.
