Detective Pikachu gets a graphic novel adaptation

What other movie-themed merchandise can we expect to see?

The official Pokémon website has revealed a new graphic novel has been created which is based on the new movie Detective Pikachu. Releasing in America on the 23rd of July, the book will give a new angle on the story shown on the silver screen. Interviews have been shared on the creation of the graphic novel as well.

Now that you’ve seen POKÉMON Detective Pikachu on the big screen, you’re probably itching to relive the adventures of Tim and his crime-solving partner as they weave their way through the underbelly of Ryme City. You can now experience the mystery in a whole new way with the POKÉMON Detective Pikachu graphic novel from Legendary Comics.

We had the opportunity to chat with some of the creators of this comic adaptation. Brian Buccellato (writer), Jann Jones (manager of brand development and publishing operations at Legendary Comics), and Nelson Dániel (artist) were kind enough to tell us more about the creation of this graphic novel and what it’s like to be a part of the world of Pokémon.
