Don't miss this exciting sci-fi prequel graphic novel of the highly anticipated Warner Bros. & Legendary motion picture, Pacific Rim directed by Guillermo del Toro! Chronicling the very first time Earth is menaced by incredible monsters known as Kaiju, these inhuman beasts rise from the ocean depths and threaten to extinguish 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 tale features many of the key characters from the film as we follow them in their early careers. Witten by Pacific Rim screenwriter himself, Travis Beacham, and with del Toro's hands-on supervision, this volume is beautifully illustrated by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, and Pericles Junior; inks by Steve Bird and Mark McKenna; and fully painted cover by superstar artist Alex Ross.

Adds a lot of depth and backstory to an already fantastic movie

An excellent companion piece to what is, to my mind, an under-appreciated movie. Warning: there's a lot less giant monster battling, and a lot more quality character development, than you might have been expecting!

The two pilots/ one mind concept raises some interesting psychological, philosophical and theological questions. Would need several years of an animated series to just begin to explore. Of course the movie, not yest seen, will totally ignore.

@droctogonopus123 Transformers are NOT piloted by humans. Never have been. Kaiju are from the Godzilla franchise anyway.

Cool idea, but disappointing. It's a comic book about a monster movie, but it didn't have that much monster-fighting. More monster-fighting would have been nice.
