I was all over Robotech back in the day (the Comico comics, from the late '80s, rather than the cartoons, which were hard to come by over here in the pre-Internet, pre-satellite and cable Dark Ages).
So I'm rather excited that Titan Comics are bringing them back, and have tapped a quality writer like Brian Wood for the series.
That said, I am to keep my pull-list reasonably trim, but this is very tempting.
The first issue of the new Robotech is scheduled to hit shelves on July 26, with the publicity blurb reading:
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.
