'Pacific Rim Aftermath' Comic Will Act As A Prequel To Film's  Sequel

The Pacific Rim Uprising  movie will be getting a prequel -- no, not the original Pacific Rim  movie -- in the form of a comic. Pacific Rim Aftermath will be a six-issue comic set in 2034, a year before the sequel (9 years after the original). It appears that the comic will follow Jake Pentecost (John Boyega in the movie) and show some of the backstory of Jake's world in ravaged Santa Monica. Jake will also be looking into the death of his father 9 years ago, Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba in the original movie).

The comic will also introduce some previously unknown characters. Griffin (who we guess is the person on the cover to the first issue of the comic) is a Jaegar pilot who went from defending the world to manning an illegal mech for a mob boss. We'll also meet the Mech Czar, a "techno-criminal overlord who rules the underworld with a steel fist".

Pacific Rim Aftermath #1 will be written by Cavan Scott, with art by Rich Elson. It is being published by Legendary who also produced the Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero graphic novel, and the Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift  comic series. Aftermath #1 will breach The Rift and crash store shelves January 17, 2018 just in time for the Uprising's March 23 debut.
