Mech Cadet Yu 1 (August 2017)

Mech Cadet Yu #1So giant robots come from outer space and befriend kids, who then pilot them in battle against… whatever. Maybe kaiju. Only this time a robot–a Mech–picks a teen janitor instead of an specially trained teen, because of course the U.S. military has gotten involved and corrupted the whole process. They’ve even built their own Mech; I wonder if the evil cadet who bullies teen janitor Yu will be a problem? Excellent art from Takeshi Miyazawa but utterly hohum script from Greg Pak. Mech Cadet Yu is off a rocky start.
