Titan Comics has revealed interior art and covers for Robotech #1, the upcoming series from Titan Comics that takes the classic Robotech series from the 1980’s and retells it in comic book form, creating a new comic that will be accessible to new fans and old. Those who have watched and enjoyed the anime Robotech should be able to enjoy getting reacquainted with characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval, while, Titan Comics promises, new readers will be able to follow the story.
If you are curious, impatient, and/or nostalgic, now might be a good time to head over to Netflix to watch the one season currently available. Your local library may well have DVD or Blu Ray versions available, and, of course, there is always Amazon. Amazon Prime members can watch the for free; anyone who wishes may buy it online or in DVD or Blu-Ray form.
