We’re big fans of Legendary’s comic lineup here at Geek Legacy. Combining unique titles with top-name talents, Legendary is rapidly becoming a major force in the independent comic scene. Hot on the heels of their last announcement, Legendary has revealed several new books, including a brand new Pacific Rim title! Check out the details below. Believe me, comic fans, if you’ve been sleeping on Legendary, it’s time to wake up!

Legendary Comics announces Pacific Rim Comic Book Series and two other exciting new titles to arrive in the Fall

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 Pacific Rim 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), 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.
