Legendary Pictures has tweeted out the first couple of pages of the Pacific Rim prequel comic book Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero. There’s also a couple of photos of new Jaegers Horizon Brave and Romeo Blue!
The story for the comic is described:
“the very first time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinguish all mankind! Witness the race to develop massive robot fighting machines called Jaegers, each one controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. This action-packed book features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers.”
The comic is written by Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham, along with Guillermo del Toro in a supervisory role. It is illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; with inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna.
The comic will be released on June 5th, with the movie to follow a month later on July 12th!
