Preview THE GREAT WALL Graphic Novel Prequel

While movie fans in China have already seen The Great Wall, fans in the U.S. are gonna have to wait until February 2017 to see Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, and Andy Lau take on the unthinkable monster horde in American movie theaters. But before that happens, Legendary Comics is releasing a graphic novel prequel to The Great Wall, which will take place six decades before the event of the movie.

Writer Arvid Nelson and artist Gian Fernando are the creative team on The Great Wall: Last Survivor, which focuses on a young man named Bao, as he joins the Nameless Order to defend the Great Wall against the monsters that attack it every 60 years. Image Comics co-founder Whilce Portacio is providing the cover, which you can see below.

Here’s the description from Legendary Comics:

“What if an army was created to defend our world from an enemy so dangerous, its very existence must be kept a secret? Built to keep out the ferocious Tao Tei, The Great Wall is the most powerful defensive structure ever built; but it is the heroes within that make the wall great: The Nameless Order. Set sixty years prior to the film, in the mysterious lands of ancient China, tragedy forces young Bao into joining The Nameless Order and upholding the corps’ four principles: Discipline, Loyalty, Secrecy, and Sacrifice. Challenged by rivals, haunted by his past, and tested by desires, Bao spends his life preparing for one singular moment: when he will have to defend the world from ferocious monsters that have come to devour us all.”

 The Great Wall: Last Survivor will be released on January 24, 2017 – preview the first issue in our gallery below.
