A young boy gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he bonds with a giant sentient robot and joins the ranks of the illustrious Sky Corps Academy to protect the world from alien threats. The second Sharg war has begun. As the alien invasion grows to a worldwide threat, the Mech Cadets answer the call alongside their robos to defend the planet.
First year students, however, are grounded and forbidden from fighting on the front lines.
But while training in secret, Stanford, Park, Olivetti, and Sanchez will discover that their enemy takes more shapes than they could have ever known. Bestselling author Greg Pak (The Hulk, Superman) and fan-favorite artist Takeshi Miyazawa (Runaways, Ms. Marvel) continue Stanford Yu's journey alongside his friends and robo mech as he begins to question what makes a hero in a time of war.
