If any of you movie fans are like me the trailers to The Great Wall have been a complete mystery.  From the first ever promo picture of Matt Damon to the just released final trailer each bit of information we get about this movie intrigues me more and more.  For movie fans interested in seeing The Great Wall or comic fans looking for an entertaining piece go to your comic book store today and pic this up.  The Great Wall Prequel gives an important backstory on the secret society of heroes who have been defending the world from within The Great Wall.

For those who are still aren’t sure of picking up the piece check out the preview imagaes below or tomorrow for my review of the graphic novel.


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.

An original graphic novel inspired by the major motion picture The Great Wall from Legendary, Universal Pictures, China Film Co., Ltd and Le Vision Pictures, directed by Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) and starring Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Willem Dafoe. The Great Wall: Last Survivor is written by Arvid Nelson (Rex Mundi) with art by Gian Fernando (13 Legends). The cover art is by Whilce Portacio.
