Legendary Comics showed off Alex Ross's fully-painted cover to the publisher's Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero graphic novel Saturday at WonderCon.

According to Legendary, the June graphic novel, serves as a prequel to one of this summer's most highly-anticipated film's - Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim by director Guillermo del Toro.


"Chronicling the very first time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinguish all mankind!" say Legendary in a press release. "Witness the race to develop massive robot fighting machines called Jaegers, each one controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. This action-packed book features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Written by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro's hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna."

While Legendary is the publisher, and Warner Bros. is the Pacific Rim studio, curiously Marvel Comics will actually be releasing the graphic novel.
