The creators of Amadeus Cho bring you an action-packed story about a boy and his robot


From Boom! Studios

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.

This will be 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.

“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).
