Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa, the creators of Amadeus Cho, bring you an action-packed story about a boy and his robot.
May 16, 2016 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – BOOM! Studios is thrilled to announce MECH CADET YU, a new monthly series launching in August from longtime collaborators Greg Pak (The Incredible Hulk, War Machine) and Takeshi Miyazawa (Ms. Marvel, Runaways). The pair has worked together in the past on projects like Code Monkey Save World and ABC Disgusting, and are widely known for the creation of Amadeus Cho, who would eventually star in Marvel’s Totally Awesome Hulk.
Mech Cadet Yu is the story of Stanford Yu, a young janitor who is unexpectedly chosen to join the sacred ranks of the mech cadets at Sky Corps Academy. Once a year, giant robots from outer space come to Earth to bond with the cadets to defend the world from terrifying aliens known as the Sharg. After he unintentionally bonds with his robot, Yu is thrown into training, hoping to prove he is worthy of being there at all.
“I love giant robots. And I love quirky, personal stories about lonely kids trying to find their crew and mission in the world,” says Pak. “So many of the stories I’ve written over the years are rooted in things I loved the most when I was 10 years old—like giant robots, natch. It’s a thrill to finally be writing that kind of story from the point of view of a character who’s an actual kid. And I’m excited to be writing multi-dimensional Asian American lead characters in a genre that’s so beloved by so many Asian Americans, but seldom features them.”
“To me, working with Greg Pak is a chance to work on something special,” adds Miyazawa. “Mech Cadet Yu is one of those special projects, an underdog story about beating the odds, making friends, and kicking alien butt in giant robots. When he came to me with the idea, it was something I couldn’t turn down.”
“Tak’s got an incredible ability to bring out all the emotional nuance and humor that makes the friendships and rivalries of young characters feel utterly real and relatable,” praises Pak. “And he draws giant robots like nobody’s business. He’s delivering fun and wonder in every page and every panel.”
Mech Cadet Yu #1 features covers by Miyazawa, Marcus To (Joyride), and Juan Doe (Uncanny X-Men).
In August, print copies of Mech Cadet Yu #1 will be available for sale at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! webstore. Digital copies will be available to purchase on digital book marketplaces, including ComiXology and the BOOM! Studios app.
Mech Cadet Yu is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, WWE, Big Trouble in Little China, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Godshaper, Grass Kings, and Klaus.
