Big comics news, friends! I’m thrilled to report that we’re launching a new MECH CADETS comic book series, a sequel to MECH CADET YU! MECH CADETS #1 hits comic shops on August 9, the day before the MECH CADETS animated show debuts on Netflix!
MECH CADET YU is one of my favorite of all the comics I’ve ever worked on, and I’m thrilled to be coming back for new stories about these characters with artist and co-creator Tak Miyazawa, colorist Ian Herring, and letterer Simon Bowland.
For more info about the series and a preview of the first four pages of the first issue, check out the ScreenRant article. Here’s my quote from the article:
Tak’s bringing all his magic to every page and every panel, with that special combination of incredible genre thrills, amazing humor, and fantastic emotional subtlety. And all of our characters are a bit older and the world has gotten a bit more complex, with some shocking twists and challenges. I’m biased, of course, but it feels vital and real and just as fun as ever, and I can’t wait for y’all to see it!
Please do ask your local comics shop to pre-order MECH CADETS #1 for you! And check out the glorious Sonny Liew variant cover for issue #1, featuring Olivia Park and her father, General Park, whose contentious relationship will play a huge role in the series!
