Titan Comics has revealed a first glimpse of some interior art (below) and some story details for its new Robotech comic based on the influential ’80s anime classic. Issue one is published on 26 July.
The all-new Robotech comic series returns to Macross Island, the place where it all began. Writer Brian Wood, artist Marco Turini and colourist Marco Lesko have crafted a thrilling new tale that’s perfectly accessible to new fans, as well as providing a deeper layer of twists for old-school protoculture addicts!
First airing in the USA in 1985, Robotech was the gateway to anime for many fans – capturing their imagination with its epic generational storyline involving war, romance, and, of course, the transforming Veritech fighters that defend the Earth against extra-terrestrial attacks.
Produced by Harmony Gold USA, the original 85-episode series delved into humanity’s struggle against a series of alien invasions, from the gigantic Zentraedi to the mysterious Invid, battling for control of advanced alien technology that crash-landed on Earth.
The debut issue comes with stunning covers to collect by amazing talents such as Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy), Michael Dialynas (The Woods), Blair Shedd (Doctor Who), The Waltrip Bros and more!
