Dabel Brothers will be releasing a comic book tie-in for the Jason Statham-starring film MEG.  Steve Alten, who wrote the novel on which the film is based, is writing the six-issue series, which comes in a regular edition at an MSRP of $4.00 and a special edition that includes variant covers, posters, bookmarks, enamel pins, and other extras (MSRP $15.00). The first issue will ship in April.

The comic, book, and film center on Jonas Taylor, who finds himself face-to-face with the largest predator in the history of the animal kingdom: Carcharodon megalodon, an immense (not so) extinct species of shark that is closely related to the great white.

Jon Turtletaub (National Treasure) is directing the film, with Statham starring as Taylor. The film also stars Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead), Masi Oka (Heroes), Ruby Rose (John Wick: Chapter 2), and Bibgbing Li (Transformers: Age of Extinction).

Dabel Brothers announced last week that it would release a comic series based on Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles, which the publisher will distribute to comic stores itself (see "Dabel Brothers to Launch 'Iron Druid Chronicles' Comic").
