Remember that time we told you Legendary was bringing us even more Pacific Rim-related comic goodness? They’ve sweetened the deal even more, promising variant covers for each issue from some of the biggest artists in comics, the first of which comes from Whilce Portacio. Take a look below, as well as the official press release, and join me in being even more excited for these books than I already was!

For each issue, Legendary will release an alternate cover featuring limited edition artwork. The variant cover for issue #1 was illustrated by notable comics artist Whilce Portacio (Uncanny X-Men, Iron Man, Spawn).
