When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Back in September, Pacific Rim fans learned the disappointing news that Pacific Rim 2 has been delayed, pushed out of its planned August 4, 2017 release to an undetermined time frame, to give director Guillermo del Toro and writer Travis Beacham more time to perfect the story. Thankfully, fans can get a new glimpse inside this fascinating universe right now. Long before this delay happened, those filmmakers teamed up with writer Joshua Fialkov for a new comic book series entitled Pacific Rim: Tales From the Drift, which is available now from Legendary Comics.
The comic follows the best-selling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, taking fans back to the frontlines of a larger-than-life battleground, featuring all-new Kaiju creatures in this thrilling continuation of the Pacific Rim universe. The story is set in 2016, following a husband-and-wife Jaeger team, Duc and Kaori, weaving between their battle with a Kaiju, and how they first met. The first issue was released this week, the first in a four-part series with subsequent issues released each month.Read More
