Imagine the Balrog giving the business to the 2000 US version of Godzilla. Now imagine whatever monster that romantic pairing would pop out and have it fight the Iron Giant’s meaner big brother… There you have it: Alex Ross’s cover for the Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero graphic novel, which provides a prequel to the film and illustrates some of mankind’s early interactions with the kaiju beasts. It’s a one-two punch of comic book crossover news around here!

You can grab the comic (from us!) on June 5th and see the film on July 11th.
