Your family can spend generations strapping into mechs and saving the world from giant monsters, but that can’t save them all from the problems waiting for them at home. That’s the setup behind Vault Comics’ epic new miniseries We Ride Titans, a story that blends the sci-fi spectacle of Pacific Rimwith the messy family dynamics of Shameless — and we’ve got an exclusive first look right here.
Written by Tres Dean (All Time Low: Young Renegades, For Your Consideration: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and work right here at SYFY WIRE) and drawn by Sebastián Piriz (Disaster Inc., Black Beacon), We Ride Titans is set in a world where kaiju are a constant threat. To combat this, humanity has developed giant mechs known as Titans, and created crews to pilot them into battle to face the monster menace. Riding a Titan makes you a celebrity not unlike a Formula One race car driver, but it comes with a price. Kit Hobbs is a member of a Titan-piloting family that’s been protecting New Hyperion for generations, but despite the prestige of the job, the Hobbs family is falling apart. With her father and her brother both facing their own internal crises, Kit’s got plenty to deal with at home, to say nothing of the 20-story creatures she faces at work.
