Legendary Comics Announces Pacific Rim Comic Series Plus Black Bag and Cops for Criminals

Comic fans, this one’s for you! Legendary Comics has announced three new series this morning, all of which are heading our way in the fall.  First up is a Pacific Rim spinoff, Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift, and after that are two original titles: Black Bag and Cops for Criminals. Get all the details plus some artwork below!

Guillermo del Toro promised more adventures from the world of Pacific Rim – and he has delivered. Legendary is taking fans 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 featuring a story from Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham. A continuation of the bestselling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, the new comic series will feature Jaegers never before seen in combat, squaring off against all-new Kaiju creatures.

Legendary is also launching two original titles. First is the riveting espionage thriller Black Bag, starring Legendary Comics’ first female action hero. This gripping series about a suburban wife-turned-covert government assassin comes from writer Chris Roberson, creator of the breakout comic iZombie (recently adapted into a network TV series on The CW), and features art from fast-rising talent JB Bastos, known for his standout work on Night Trap.

Finally, Legendary is partnering with acclaimed writer Steven Grant on Cops for Criminals, a daring new crime-thriller series about a federal agent forced to find true justice in the criminal underworld. Pete Woods, whose long and storied career includes iconic franchises such as Deadpool, Catwoman, and Robin, returns to pencil, ink, and color the title.

To celebrate these launches, Legendary is also giving fans the chance to win an exclusive page of original artwork from the upcoming Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift. Participants are invited to enter at PacificRimComicArt.com to win this one-of-a-kind prize.
