I’m thrilled to announce that our MECH CADET YU comic book series won the Mike Wieringo Spirit Award at the Ringo Awards at the Baltimore Comic Con last night!
The award is given to the book the judges believe most lives up to the spirit of fun and joy that Mike Wieringo’s work epitomized. It’s a huge honor and I’m overwhelmed, proud, and very, very grateful.
Massive thanks to the creative team, Takeshi Miyazawa, Triona Farrell, Jessica Kholinne, Simon Bowland, and Raul Angulo. Massive thanks to our amazing editors Cameron Chittock and Eric Harburn. Massive thanks to everyone at BOOM! who have supported the book so much, including Arune, Mel, Filip, Ross, and Stephanie. And massive thanks to Jeff, Parry, Keith and Jerry, the editors of the SHATTERED Asian American comics anthology where the earliest version of the story first appeared.
And of course, thanks so much to all the readers and reviewers and retailers who have given the book so much love. Without you, this never, ever could have happened.
