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 Toroโ€™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.

I am happy to announce the release of my latest nonfiction title Before Mako Came Yoko: Comparative Study of Pacific Rim and Yoko Tsuno. If you enjoy either franchise or are curious about media representation of female characters, I especially recommend it. Happy reading!
