This past weekend at Wondercon, Guillermo Del Toro and Legendary Pictures revealed the cover to the graphic novel prequel of their highly anticipated summer epic, PACIFIC RIM. Called TALES FROM THE YEAR ZERO, the book was written by PACIFIC RIM screenwriter Travis Beacham with a cover design by the great Alex Ross. Now you can check it out below!
Chronicling 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 tale features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Written by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro's hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna; and fully painted cover by superstar artist Alex Ross.
Meanwhile, PACIFIC RIM hits theaters courtesy of Warner Bros. on July 12th.
