Last summer, Guillermo del Toro announced that not only was a sequel to the 2013 film Pacific Rim on the way but that an animated series and new comic books would fill in the gaps that the films couldn’t get to. Now, Legendary Comics has revealed the first details on the upcoming comic series, which will be titled Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift.
Written by Elk’s Run and The Bunker scribe Joshua Fialkov, the series will feature art by Batman Confidential‘s Marcos Marz from a story by series creator Travis Beacham. It’s described as follows:
“Following the best-selling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Legendary takes you back to the frontlines of a larger-than-life battleground with Pacific Rim: Tales From the Drift, the official new comic series presented by director Guillermo del Toro and Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham. Prepare to do battle with all-new Kaiju creatures in this thrilling continuation of the Pacific Rim universe.”
The four issue series will debut in November of this year. Pacific Rim 2 is currently set for release on April 7, 2017.
