    This is a comic book to look out for. The character development is top notch and the world-building is exciting. Beautiful art, wonderful characters, and giant robots, there's not much more you can ask for in a comic. Read Full Review

    Mech Cadet Yu is the essence of what makes comics so great an underdog overcoming odds to achieve what no one dreamed of. I'm sure all readers can imagine being in Yu's shoes in this lighthearted read. Read Full Review

    Mech Cadet Yu is a comic I enjoy and appreciate now but would have adored as a kid, and it achieves the rare feat of truly appealing to an "All Ages" audience. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Sep 13, 2017

    Mech Cadet Yu is a fun series with a lot of heart. The second issue continues to showcase the world the creator has in mind and the potential it has in the future. If you havent taken the time to check out this comic series, you are missing out on something good. Also, by the end of this issue it becomes apparent the drama and intensity is going to be kicked into high gear with issue three so this is the perfect time to read the first two issues and wait in anticipation for more Mech Cadet Yu.

    Comic Bastards - Daniel Vlasaty Sep 13, 2017

    Mech Cadet Yu employs all the workings of a "feel-good" book. It's an underdog story. And I'm a fan of this type of story. The characters are strong and great and I feel a connection with them. Which is how it is supposed to be with characters. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's an enjoyable issue and maintains the series' momentum. It delivers familiar themes in a well-executed package. The final pages of the issue also do a great job of building excitement for the rest of the series. I give this issue 4 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    Not counting the final page the issue is structured well. A lot happens and while a big chunk of it is very typical for "boy gets to pilot a robot" stories, the tone is very different from many mech series, so "Mech Cadet Yu" #2 is worth checking out even for those who don't get particularly excited about robot stories.
