An animated series and graphic novel are also in production. The comic series is written by Joshua Fialkov (Doctor Who, The Bunker) and illustrated by Marcos Marz (Batman Confidential) and takes place before Mako Mori and Raleigh Becket. Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham told EW : “I knew from the beginning that there were more stories in the world and that they’d be fun to tell. I think a lot of movies like this, they try to cram the whole thing from beginning to end — and with this, I really wanted to come in kind of in the middle of everything, or even towards the end. So I knew there were a lot of opportunities to explore in other mediums.”
