Preview of Titan Comics’ Robotech
With all of the 80s nostalgia taking place, you might have forgotten about the 80s animated series Robotech. Combining three unrelated anime series (The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA), Robotech was a cross-media sensation, emerging not only as an animated series, but a 1986 feature film, a toy line, role-playing game, novelizations, and of course comic books. Previous publishers of Robotech comics are DC, Comico, Eternity, Academy, Antarctic, Wildstorm and Dynamite. This summer, Titan gets added to that list.
Here are some preview pages Titan sent out, along with the YouTube trailer, and the various variant covers for the first issue.

Not just another retelling of the Macross saga …
In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek’s original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, this new Robotech #1 casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval. Brian Wood and Marco Turini take us back to a Macross Island where *nothing* can be taken for granted.
