Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero

PACIFIC RIM: TALES FROM YEAR ZERO serves as a sequel to the highly-anticipated motion picture -- Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures Pacific Rim. Chronicling the very last time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinquish all mankind! Witness the race to develop massive robot fighting machines called Jaegers, each one controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. This action-packed book features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Written by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro 's hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully penciled by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, Pericles Junior, Chris Batista and Geoff Shaw; inks by Steve Bird, Mark McKenna, Pericles Junior and Matt Banning.

There 's thi whole theme of unity, of fighting together, that makes it better than the idea of superspecial people ( Gundam pilots, or whatever) saving the world.

After my little sister watched Pacific Rim, she gave me some food for thought.She pointed out that the whole movie would have been ompletely different if Mako Mori had not been portrayed by an Asian female.

Mako is a cool female character and I 'd like to know that she 'd be the same person regardless of her race.

Most of them revolved around the backstories of characters established in the film, and act as book-ends for the main narrative of the blond female scientist with poofy lips whose name escapes me ....* ( Here there be spoilers)*- Tendo hardly speaks to his randpa, they 're from different cultures and do n't kno each other well, but when disaster strikes, he knows how important family bonds are.-Stacker Pentecost 's Co-Pilot gets a terminal diagnosis and alienates him because she did n't expec him to see her suffering.

Firstly, the book implies that while the central concept here is giant mechas beating up giant monsters, that is n't complete story.

ales From Year Zero is easily one of the best graphic novels I 've read for ages.

Clever and gripping, it tells three prequel stories that all tie in to he new movie Pacific Rim, brought to cinema screens by Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham ( who has previousl written this graphic novel).

I 've read Tales From Year Zero twice already and I 'm kno I 'll be reading it again the I 've seen the film on release day.

And they were met at that low standard, sadly.A lot of the best content from this graphic novel is stuff I 'd lready seen online- Tamsin and Luna, Tendo and his cousi, the tiny glimpse we are given of Caitlin Lightcap.

Moreover, I wan that Beacham did a much better job bringing that philosophy to life in his interview with fans online after the movie turne out than he did in this graphic novel.

Love the graphic, love Charlie Hunnam ( ehm), and it 's kinda remind me of my childhood that somehow delighted to see Ultraman beat the monster ( haha) Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero contain 3 part.

And s she is the reason why in the film, Stacker holding the responsibility for the emise of the kaijus.The second part is told us how the Jaeger made for the sixt time.

Pacific Rim Tales from Year Zero is a must read if you love Pacific Rim, or ven you find the movie just okay, you do n't pretend to miss this one.

is seque to the film Pacific Rim. It does a great job of expanding on the backgrounds of the protagonists, particularly focusing on Marshal Stacker Pentecost.We get to meet Pentecost 's sister, a RAF fighter pilot on training in the US on K-Day, the date of the first kaiju attack on San Francisco.
