This week, Boom! Studios has finally released the first issue of Mech Cadet Yu, the most recent collaboration between comic book stalwarts Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa. To celebrate the book’s release, Greg returns to Hard NOC Life to explain the book’s creation, including its origins in the Secret Identities follow-up anthology, Shattered.
Greg and Keith also discuss everything from the lack of Asian American representation in lead roles, the evolution of the story from Shattered to now, depicting different kinds of Asian American characters, and why Greg should cosplay as John Wick for New York Comic-Con.
All this and more on Hard NOC Life! Watch it on your screen, hit “play,” and check this.
