If you loved Pacific Rim: Amara, the digital prequel to Pacific Rim: Uprising from Legendary Comics and Webtoon, you now have another way to enjoy the book. The publisher has released a print edition featuring expanded artwork. Written by Cavan Scott and Zhang Ran and illustrated by BigN, the comic is set in between the two Pacific Rim films, telling the origin story of Amara in a post-Kaiju Santa Monica. She tries to rebuild her life in the wake of tragedy and loss.

As the Kaiju Wars rage on, Pacific Rim: Amara follows the young heroine whose life shattered when she is orphaned during a devastating monster attack. Fighting to survive as her city is destroyed, she finds shelter with a grumpy mech-inventor named Kai and his closest companion, Hannah. The trio forms an unlikely family in the aftermath of the invasion, looking out for one another and scavenging old mech parts to build their very own Jaeger, a pilotable giant robot with the power to protect Amara from the monsters that took everything from her. On a wild adventure through the destroyed landscape of Los Angeles to find the parts she needs to complete her Jaeger Scrapper, Amara becomes caught up in a dangerous and explosive mech-racing league and finds herself in a race against time to be ready for the day the monsters return. This epic prequel to the blockbuster movie Pacific Rim Uprising exclusively reveals the origins of Pacific Rim heroes Amara and Scrapper, as well as reveals the courage that rises when the world falls.

“We were thrilled to create a truly international entry into the Pacific Rim saga with a graphic novel co-written by a British and Chinese writer with a Chinese artist,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics. “This print edition of the comic expands upon the artwork seen in the digital version, so we like to think of it as a director’s cut.”


Pacific Rim: Amara is currently available at your local comic shop, book store, and Amazon.
