Legendary Announces ‘Pacific Rim’ Comic, New Spy and Crime Series
Here's the good news, Pacific Rim fans: A new Legendary Comics series titled Tales from the Drift, with a story by screenwriter Travis Beacham, script by Joshua Hale Fialkov and art by Marcos Marz, is coming. The bad news? It won't be out until November.
The announcement of the new series came Wednesday, along with news of two other titles debuting this fall, including a new spy book by writer Chris Roberson and artist JB Bastos, and a crime comic by writer Steven Grant and artist Pete Woods.
Here's Legendary's very brief description of the new Pacific Rim comic:
Following the best-selling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, Legendary takes you 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 Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham.
Prepare to do battle with all-new Kaiju creatures in this thrilling continuation of the Pacific Rim universe.
"All-new kaiju" sounds promising, right?

The Roberson/Bastos spy series is titled Black Bag. Here's Legendary's description:
A suburban housewife with a criminal past and a thirst for adrenaline is about to get a top-secret side job: carrying out the government’s most dangerous missions.
Renear is tired of playing by the rules. A valedictorian and top athlete in her younger years, she’s sacrificed a promising career to tie the knot and play house… isn’t there more to life than this? Of course there is - if you’re willing to take the shot.
It’s time the world found out what she is truly capable of.
And here's the description of the Grant/Woods crime series, titled Cops for Criminals:
When a federal agent becomes a victim of the system he has sworn to uphold, he finds true justice in the criminal underworld.
Agent Woods was one of the best – but everything changed when he was wrongfully convicted and labeled a traitor. After serving his time, this ex-convict is cut loose onto the lawless streets to fight corruption on both sides of the law. Even criminals need a code – and every code needs an enforcer.
