(Welcome to Comic Book Drive-In, a series where comic and movie fans Jazmine Joyner and Rosie Knight recommend brand new, ongoing, and completed comic book series that tie into classic films and new releases.)
Hello, comic and movie fans! This week, our chosen film is the outrageous monster movie The Meg, which stars Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, and Cliff Curtis, and is the end product of 20 years of development hell! National Treasure’s Jon Turteltaub directs.
Based on Steve Alten’s book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, the movie tells the tale of the legendary prehistoric shark Megalodon re-emerging and getting his feast on. Jason Statham may or may not punch it. So when it comes to picking comic books to read alongside The Meg, we had a ton of options: giant monsters, watery spectacle, fear of the unknown, and so on!
We’ve selected three fantastic comics (one brand new, one ongoing, and one finished) for your perusing pleasure that complement the wild giant shark-infested waters of The Meg! Whether you’re going to read ’em relaxing on the beach or whilst battling a massive monster, we’ve got something to sate your sequential storytelling appetite!
