Pacific Rim: Ultimate Omnibus is Out Now

In 2013, Legendary Entertainment and Warner Brother’s Pacific Rim impacted into theaters bringing to life giant robots and giant monsters as they had never been seen before. Legendary Comics expanded on the mythology of this universe with Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, a prequel graphic novel presented by Guillermo Del Toro and written by Pac Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham and a stellar art team consisting of Sean ChenYvel Guichet, Pericles JuniorChris Batista, and Geoff Shaw. The rich universe and mythology that had been devised by the filmmakers and Legendary left a universe of stories that could be told. 

Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift arrived in 2015 once again from screenwriter Beacham and television writer/comic creator Joshua Fialkov and the art team of Marcos Marz and Marcello Miaolo. This tale of a pilot couple linked by marriage and the drift brought a new level of drama to the action.

In 2018, a second movie, Pacific Rim Uprising, descended and with a new set of characters, Jaegers and Kaiju. Cavan Scott took the reigns and crafted a tale that featured the return of fan favorite Hannibal Chau and showed what happened between the two films in Pacific Rim Aftermath

At the same time Cavan and writer Zhang Ran and artist BigN teamed for Pacific Rim: Amara, which depicted the backstory of one of the new characters from Uprising in an anime style. 

Last month, Pacific Rim: Blackout allowed readers to revisit the world of Netflix’s Original Anime Series Pacific Rim: The Black in an all-new prequel adventure by Cavan Scott and  artist Nelson Dániel and featuring fan-favorite character Herc Hansen. The PPDC Ranger returns as a world-weary jaeger pilot dragged into battle as an influx of kaiju threatens to destroy the Australian continent and all its inhabitants. Along with his niece Olivia, his copilot Cooper, and Marshal Rask, Herc faces brand-new kaiju of epic proportions while battling his own inner demons.

And, now for the first time ever, Legendary Comics brings together all the Pacific Rim graphic novels in one oversized 568-page hardcover collection that showcases the vast array of the Pacific Rim universe.

Pacific Rim: Ultimate Omnibus is now available at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, and comic shops.

Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2 Universe Expands!

If you missed Hitler in March, don’t worry! He’s coming back in May!

Space Goat‘s Evil Dead 2 titles have successfully struck a horror nerve, according to Space Goat CEO Shon Bury. The company’s first “Revenge Of” one-shot, Evil Dead 2: Revenge Of Hitler by Ian Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers is sold out from the publisher and going back for a second printing.

Spurred by the strong initial orders and reorder activity on their initial title, Space Goat is expanding their “Revenge Of” titles pitting Ash against other classic horrors. The company has signed critically-acclaimed writers Scott Peterson, Ian Edginton, Georgia Ball, and Ty Templeton to handle the new Evil Dead 2 one-shots.

And they’re bringing with them tales of Martians, Vampires, Jack the Ripper, and Krampus for their 2016 titles.

The titles are meant to have a little fun with a property that’s already meant to be fun.

Veteran DC writer and editor Scott Peterson will tackle Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula this July. In the announcement release, Peterson said:

Ash and Dracula have to team-up to fight an even greater evil. But should you really bring a vampire to a demon fight?”

The one-shot will be illustrated by Yvel Guichet and Horacio Domingues. A variant cover by legendary Batman artist Kelley Jones will be offered as well.

Georgia Ball, who’s currently writing two graphic novels for Scholastic, will script Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Jack The Ripper. Ball said:

Ripper is the quintessential bad guy. He’s one of the original unsolved mysteries. That makes him a natural to go up against Ash and the Deadites with the Kandarian dagger as his weapon of choice.

Ty Templeton will revive H.G. Wells’ classic Martians from The War of the Worlds. Templeton said in the release:

Deadites are reanimating the preserved bodies of the original Martians. The Earth is looking at a second War of the Worlds, unless Ash can stop them, and it won’t be with the old cold-and-flu virus this time.

Templeton has previously worked on a round of EC-style variant covers for Space Goat’s Evil Dead 2: Cradle of the Damned series earlier this year.

Rounding out the first quintet of Revenge titles is Ian Edginton’s ode to holiday joy, Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Krampus.

The second printing of Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Hitler by Edginton, Larry Watts, and Chris Summers will ship in May. Evil Dead 2: Revenge of Dracula will ship in July. Shipping dates and artists for the other Revenge Of titles will be announced shortly.

Be on the lookout for these titles this Summer and Fall!

May – Revenge of Hitler REPRINT

July – Revenge of Dracula by Scott Person

 September – Revenge of the Martians by Ty Templeton

October – Revenge of Jack the Ripper by Georgia Ball

November – Revenge of Krampus by Ian Edginton
