The Uprising begins here.
Pacific Rim Aftermath #1 hits comics stores today, featuring two strips that continue the story of the original hit movie.
Aftermath introduces former Jaeger pilot Joshua Griffin, struggling to make a life for himself in a world without monsters to fight. The incredible art is by Richard Elson, best known for his stellar work in 2000AD, with colours by Guy Major.
Meanwhile, I Am Pentecost focuses on John Boyega’s character from Pacific Rim Uprising. Art is by Beni Lobel, with colours by Christopher Sotomayor.

I’ve had a blast working on this series, working with editor Robert Napton and Legendary’s master of Kaiju mythology, Barnaby Legg. And issue one already seems to be going down well.
Over on Twitter, Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, TMNT) says: “a fun comic that fans of the film should dig — especially when they get to that last page“, Paul Cornell (Saucer County, Vampirella) says: “great stuff, good art, redolent of the movies.” Meanwhile, Rob Williams, (Suicide Squad, Judge Dredd) calls it: “a really fun Jaeger-bomb (someone else must have used that, right?) primer for the upcoming movie,” while Jason Inman (DC All Access, Jupiter Jet) says Aftermath: “has Kaiju’s a plenty and is a nice buildup to the new movie.”
