POKÉMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU: Legendary Comics' Official Graphic Novel Adaptation Is Now Available

Fans of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu will be thrilled to learn that the official graphic novel adaptation from Legendary Comics is now available for those who want to read about Tim's adventures. Check it out!

Pokémon is one of the most popular franchise phenomenons. The multi-generation entertainment property is one of the most succesful media franchises of all time. With games, anime, manga, and more, all of the boxes seemed to be checked, and then they tackled the big screen.

Deciding to bring Pokémon: Detective Pikachu to big screens was definitely a risky move, even with the big name of the brand. Unfortunately video games have had a terrible track record with movie adaptations so fans weren't sure of what to expect.

To many peoples' surprise, the film broke the video game movie curse and delivered what fans were hoping to see, opening the door for other adaptations such as the recent Sonic the Hedgehog. Legendary Comics has published the official graphic novel adaptation of the movie. Take a look at what the Vice President had to say about the book below.

“Brian’s writing and Nelson’s art have really captured a depth to the world in which Detective Pikachu and his fellow Pokémon live. We are so excited to expand upon this story, as well as the characters of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.” - Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics

You can tell by Napton's comments above that Legendary Comics is more than excited to be publishing Pokémon: Detective Pikachu Graphic Novel Adaptation. With a price tag of only $17.99, many fans will want to re-live the exciting big screen adventure in a new way.

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.


The Official Pokémon: Detective Pikachu Graphic Novel Adaptation is now available and can be purchased online here for $17.99.
