“Such a welcome return of the series.”—Graphic Policy
BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at MECH CADETS #2, the next issue of a brand new chapter in the hit mecha series by co-creators Greg Pak (Ronin Island) and Takeshi Miyazawa (Ms. Marvel), with colors by Ian Herring (Deadpool), and letters by Simon Bowland (Mech Cadet Yu). Available September 2023.
The cadets don’t know what’s in store for them when they discover a Sharg prison! But solemnity strikes as the battles rage and our heroes and even their Robos have tragedy in store. And as all feels hopeless, Hero Force Two comes under attack, and an unexpected ally will make the ultimate sacrifice for the greater good…
