While you are waiting for Ryan Reynolds to lead a gang of Pokemon in solving mysteries, Legendary Comics is all ready to release the official movie graphic novel adaptation of Pokemon Detective Pikachu.
The graphic novel draws inspiration from the upcoming film that is based on the beloved Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and one of the most successful media franchises of all time. Readers are invited to follow along as lead character Tim Goodman, played in the movie by Justice Smith, journeys through Ryme City searching for his missing father. With twists and turns around every corner, nothing is more twist-y than Tim’s unexpected partner: a Pikachu with a penchant for coffee and danger, and the amazing ability to speak human language. In a city where humans and Pokémon live together in harmony, unexpected dangers surround them as they try to solve a mystery.
While Pokemon Detective Pikachu is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 10, 2019, you’ll have to wait until this summer to pick up the comic book adaptation.
