After I saw Pacific Rim, I went ahead and bought the prequel comic. I was hoping to learn more about the world and see more of the earlier jaeger pilots. Unfortunately, that’s not what I got. The comic is a series of flash backs by the characters of the film as prompted by a bland journalist who I think we’re supposed to like, but who is actually incredibly uninteresting. The creator of the jaegers turns out to be extremely off putting (and the young lab assistant he takes advantage of is shown naked on multiple occasions for no reason). The Becket brothers's grand flashback is a fight over a girl. And Mako barely makes an appearance. In the end, the worst thing I can say about it is that it was boring. For a comic about how we came to fight giant monsters via giant robot, there is a stunning lack of action. Whatever your mind can come up with about the creation of the jaegers is probably more interesting than this.
It gives many more information about what happened between the first monster attack and the beginning of the movie. Good material for people who liked the movie and wants more of that universe.
the prequel comic gives insight into the characters motivations in the movie. A great companion to the most under rated movie of the summer.
I didn't see the film, and since this was a prequel I thought it would be interesting. It was quite boring, and reminded me of the Power Rangers. Hey I grew up with them LOL. Also,the reporter is the cause of a breakup between two friends who run the mech. She just says "Oh I was a teen teehee." No remorse at all, the slut.
