    Mech Cadet Yu is an absolute blast to read. Fun, adventure and excitement, this series has it all. I cannot imagine anybody young or old not enjoying this series. Pak just knocks the storyout of the park, while Takeshi Miyazawa andTriona Farrell make for an exceptional art team. The cadets are grounded in Mech Cadet Yu #5, but that does not mean they are out of the fight! Read Full Review

    The series is one of my favorite out there and if you haven't checked it out, the trade is out this week as well. Mech Cadet Yu has an amazing amount of depth for an all-ages series and whether you want to take it on one level as giants robots versus aliens and on another it's about class. No matter how you take it, it's entertaining and a must get. Read Full Review

    Potentially the only feel-good mech story there is, this issue is welcoming and insightful. Issue #5 seems to be framing an arc about working together despite differences in ideals and backgrounds, and what could be more relevant? Read Full Review
