This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

In 2013, Legendary Entertainment and Warner Brother’s Pacific Rim impacted into theaters bringing to life giant robots and giant monsters as they had never been seen before. Legendary Comics expanded on the mythology of this universe with Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, a prequel graphic novel presented by Guillermo Del Toro and written by Pac Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham and a stellar art team consisting of Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, Pericles Junior, Chris Batista, and Geoff Shaw.
The rich universe and mythology that had been devised by the filmmakers and Legendary left a universe of stories that could be told. Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift arrived in 2015 once again from screenwriter Beacham and television writer/comic creator Joshua Fialkov and the art team of Marcos Marz and Marcello Miaolo. This tale of a pilot couple linked by marriage and the drift brought a new level of drama to the action.
In 2018, a second movie, Pacific Rim Uprising, descended and with a new set of characters, Jaegers and Kaiju. Cavan Scott (Star Wars High Republic) took the reigns and crafted a tale that featured the return of fan favorite Hannibal Chau and showed what happened between the two films in Pacific Rim Aftermath.
At the same time Cavan and writer Zhang Ran and artist BigN teamed for Pacific Rim Amara, which depicted the backstory of one of the new characters from Uprising in an anime style.
And most recently, Cavan Scott once again returned to the Pacific Rim universe and teamed with artist Nelson Daniel to create Pacific Rim Blackout, the official prequel to the Netflix series, Pacific Rim The Black.
Now for the first time ever, we are proud to bring together all of the Pacific Rim graphic novels in one oversized 568 page hardcover collection that showcases the vast array of the Pacific Rim universe. The collection features incentives and other collectible items only possible on Kickstarter and is available to backers for delivery this year before it releases into retail in 2022, so we felt this was the perfect venue to launch this definitive tome.
We look forward to sharing the Omnibus with you… time to cancel the apocalypse!
