Thirty years since it debuted on weekday afternoon television, the Harmony Gold produced animated series Robotech continues to hold a special place in the history of anime in North America. Robotech was a combination of three distinct anime series from Japan — Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber: Mospeada — combined to tell one epic multi-generational story of Earth defending itself from various alien invasions. For an entire generation, the 85 episodes of Robotech, which originally aired in 1985, were their gateway to the world of Japanese anime and manga. Now the Robotech story returns in a big way, via British publisher Titan Comics. Announced at C2E2, The all-new Robotech comic series returns to Macross Island, the place where the entire saga began. Series writer Brian Wood, artist Marco Turini and colorist 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 longtime fans who have been following the saga for over three decades.
