Legendary Announces Pacific Rim Comic Book Series



With Pacific Rim 2 in development from Guillermo del Toro and due out April 2017, Legendary Entertainment has announced a new Pacific Rim comic book series for this Fall.

Pacific Rim: Tales From The Drift will be written by comics veteran Joshua Fialkov with art by Marcos Marz and the story by Travis Beacham.

The series is a continuation of the bestselling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero and will feature Jaegers never before seen in combat squaring off against all-new Kaiju creatures.

In addition to the new Pacific Rim comic series, Legendary also announces two new titles with Black Bag and Cops For Criminals.

Black Bag is described as a riveting espionage thriller starring Legendary's first female action hero. The gripping series is about a suburban wife-turned-covert government assassin from writer Chris Roberson, creator of the breakout comic iZombie (recently adapted into a network TV series), and features art from fast-rising talent JB Bastos, known for his standout work on Night Trap.

Cops For Criminals is from Steven Grant and is described as a daring new crime-thriller series about a federal agent forced to find true justice in the criminal underworld. Pete Woods, whose long and storied career includes iconic franchises such as Deadpool, Catwoman and Robin, returns to pencil, ink and color the title.

To celebrate these launches, Legendary is also giving fans the chance to win an exclusive page of original artwork from the upcoming Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift. Participants are invited to enter at to win this one-of-a-kind prize.

Update: Legendary is also launching graphic novels for Trick or Treat and Krampus, which are due later this year.
