Revue de presse
'Boasting larger-than-life predicaments, colorful characters, operatic stories and brimming with apocalypse-sized tragedy, Pacific Rim:Tales from Year Zero is a treat for anyone with a penchant for this genre. The images work to fire the imagination even as the story, by nature of what it is designed to do, leaves you wanting more.' - IGN (18 July)
'A fantastic compliment to the movie and a touching story in its own right. The art teams all turn in great work, Beacham has an instinctive eye for page design and dialogue and all three stories have some real emotional punch to them.' - SFX (15 July)
'You can watch the movie and totally see it as a complete work, Travis Beacham told CraveOnline, [but] the comic sets up the world of the movie in a really organic way.' - Featured in a list of film prequel comics worth reading in Empire
'This slight but stunningly fun hardback companion compilation, set simultaneously before and during the events of the silver screen saga, features a triptych of short tales drawn from the unused backstory material... Furious fun for monster-lovers of all ages.' -Comics Review
'Original script writer Travis Beacham has fleshed-out the years between the first monster attack and the start of the movie, and with Guillermo Del Toro listed as a supervising editor, there's an authority to the production of this book that lifts it beyond the simple tie-in.' --Grovel
