Issue #4 of the Robotech comic, which goes on sale 25 October 2017, promises to bring Titan’s smash-hit first series to an explosive close with the death of a major character!
“This shocking finale will change the landscape of the Macross saga forever!” a Titan Comics suit claims. But will it be Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant or Henry Gloval who pays the ultimate price?
Fans can also read the full collected story in the Robotech Vol. 1 graphic novel, which goes on sale 13 February 2018.
The finale will pave the way for a new arc penned by fan-favourite writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Briggs Land) and legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman, as they chronicle the ongoing adventures of the SDF-1.
That second arc kicks-off on 13 December 2017 with issue #5 and finds the inhabitants of Macross City reeling from recent events and mourning the loss of a beloved friend (obvs). However, it’s not long before they are forced to head to Mars in an attempt to escape the advancing forces of the mysterious Zentraedi!
Robotech issue #5 will feature a cover by Jen Bartel (The Wicked + the Divine, Doctor Aphra, Jem and the Holograms), alongside variant covers by Blair Shedd (Ghostbusters, Doctor Who), an Action Figure variant, a stunning wraparound cosplay variant, a Stanley Artgerm Lau variant and a shocking ‘Funeral For A Friend’ variant!
