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 regaular 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
