Legendary Comics has announced “Pacific Rim: Aftermath,” a six-part comic book prologue to next year’s film sequel “Pacific Rim: Uprising”.
The comic offers a closer look at Jake Pentecost, John Boyega’s character from the movie and the son of the character Idris Elba played in the first.
Set nine years after the original movie, and one year before ‘Uprising,’ this follows Jake as he searches for the truth behind the death of his father Stacker Pentecost.
It also introduces Griffin, a former Jaeger pilot who now works as an enforcer for a corrupt mob boss, as well as a mysterious criminal figure called the Mech Czar who rules the underworld with a steel fist.
The comic launches January 17th 2018 in comic stores and digitally, while the film hits in March.
