From the Press Release:
Legendary Comics and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro gave WonderCon attendees a surprise treat today as they revealed the cover art for the graphic novel PACIFIC RIM: TALES FROM YEAR ZERO. The fully-painted cover was created by Alex Ross.
Hitting stores June 5th, PACIFIC RIM: TALES FROM YEAR ZERO serves as a prequel to the highly anticipated motion picture Pacific Rim from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. 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 book features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers.
Written by Pacific Rim screenwriter 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.
