We’re still waiting on a trailer for this August’s The Meg, an adaptation of the same-named Steve Alten novel from 1997. The story centers on a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon, and it’s also getting a comic series this year!
As we recently told you, Dabel Brothers Publishing will be releasing Issue #1 of Meg in April, the beginning of a series that will be an adaptation of the novel, rather than a tie-in with director Jon Turteltaub’s film. The six-issue series just went up for pre-order, with monthly subscriptions for either the regular editions ($4) or special editions ($15).
- Standard: Comic book issues 1 – 6, with issue #1 shipping out this April.
- Special Edition: This edition of the comics will ship with special covers, posters, enamel pins, mini coloring books, stickers and much more.
“The comic will feature Navy deep sea submersible pilot, Jonas Taylor as he finds himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he’s sure he saw but still can’t prove exists – Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark.”
