On May 20th, I am releasing a new nonfiction eBook (is e-booklet a word?) focusing on a movie I love (Pacific Rim) and my all time favorite comic book series (Yoko Tsuno). I wrote the original version of this paper a while ago but decided to move forward with publishing it as a short Kindle Read. This eBook is available for pre-order on all Amazon sites! I hope you will enjoy it.
Title: Before Mako Came Yoko: Comparative Study of Pacific Rim and Yoko Tsuno
Genre: nonfiction, media studies, gender studies
Synopsis: In 2013, Mako Mori, from Guillermo Del Toro’s Science Fiction movie Pacific Rim, provoked extensive fan engagement. Much praise was given to the character because of her personality and her unique narrative. Yet, a character very similar to Mako emerged decades prior to her: Yoko Tsuno, the main character from the eponymous comic book series created by Belgian author Roger Leloup.
