MECH CADETS #1 cover by Takeshi Miyazawa and Ian Herring. Featuring the heroes of the MECH CADET YU series posed before the Hero Force 2 robo against a starry sky.

I’m thrilled to report that MECH CADETS #1 hits comic book shops this Wednesday, August 9! The series is the sequel to the original MECH CADET YU series and is drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa with colors by Ian Herring, letters by Simon Bowland, and script by yours truly.

Check out this excerpt from the first advance review from Comic Book Revolution:

Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa once again team-up to deliver a can’t miss comic book in Mech Cadets #1. The characters continue to progress as they deal with what it means to be heroes in a world where they have rules they’re told to follow. The depth in the story along with a strong artistic presentation taps into everything that makes Gundam and other mech genre franchises great.

And check out a lettered preview at Graphic Policy!

I’m hugely proud of this book and I love that we’ve shifted our emphasis to focus on Olivia Park, the antagonist of the last series, as she grapples with her relationship with her father and her new status quo as the most powerful person on the planet. Big action, big heart. Please do feel free to ask your local comics shop to hold a copy for you today!
