Legendary Pictures tweeted out the first couple of pages from the Pacific Rim prequel comic book Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero. I've also included a couple of new photos, which feature new Jaegers that I haven't seen before called Horizon Brave and Romeo Blu!
The story for the comic chronicles "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 was written by Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham, along with Guillermo del Toro's hands-on supervision. It was 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, and the movie on July 12th!
