MECH CADETS Softcover Collection Announcement

MECH CADETS Gets a Softcover Collection from BOOM! Studios’ KaBOOM! Imprint Ahead of Netflix Debut

The hit all-ages Mecha series is a soon-to-be animated series on Netflix!

Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa’s beloved series, Mech Cadet Yu, is being collected in full in the soft cover MECH CADETS BOOK ONE this Summer from BOOM! Studios’ imprint, KaBOOM! With colors by Triona Farrell, Jessica Kholinne, and Raúl Angulo, MECH CADETS BOOK ONE collects all twelve issues of the soon-to-be animated series on Netflix!

Every four years, giant sentient robots from outer space come to Earth and bond forever with a brand new crop of Sky Corps Academy cadets. But this time, instead of a cadet, one mech bonds with Stanford Yu, a young boy working with his mom as a janitor at Sky Corps.

For Stanford, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. But first, he’ll have to earn the trust of his classmates and survive contact with an uncompromising enemy…the Sharg!
