MECH CADET YU #1 from Pak, Miyazawa, Farrell, and Bowland hits stores in August!


Hey, friends! I’m thrilled to announce that I’m writing MECH CADET YU, a comic book series drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa, colored by Triona Farrell, lettered by Simon Bowland, and published by BOOM!

The series follows Stanford Yu, a janitor’s kid who bonds with a giant robot and joins the elite Sky Corps Academy. Here’s a little something I said about the book last month:

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.

For more about the book, check out the article. The first issue hits comic shops on August 2 — call your local retailer and ask ’em to preorder a copy for you today!
