Brenden Fletcher and Elmer Damaso are rebooting, remixing and relaunching Robotech as Robotech Remix from Titan Comics, beginning in October.

'Robotech' #20 Sets the Stage for All New Storyline

‘Robotech’ #20 Sets the Stage for All New Storyline

Issue 20 of Robotech opens with a pretty impressive space battle between the defenders of the SDF-1 and Supreme Commander Dolza’s Zentraedi invasion fleet. It’s a harried affair, with Rick Hunter leading a fresh offensive aboard the Skull-One, the veritech fighter formerly piloted by his “big brother”, Roy Fokker. Captain Lisa Hayes is summoned to […]

Robotech #19: Dolza Destroys Los Angeles, plus Cannon Measuring Contest (REVIEW)

Robotech #19: Dolza Destroys Los Angeles! (REVIEW)

The old joke’s punchline is something along the lines of “I think I can see my house from up here”. On the opening page of Robotech #19, I can clearly see the crater where the house I grew up in was. The Zentraedi fleet, under orders from Supreme Commander Dolza, has wiped Los Angeles off […]

Strange Machine Games Adds Gender Neutral Language to ‘Robotech’ RPG

In a move certain to be controversial to people that this effects in no way whatsoever, Strange Machine Games has announced that they will be using gender-neutral pronouns in their upcoming Robotech role-playing game. I’m really excited about this: we’ve made the decision to use gender-neutral language for the Robotech RPG rulebook. It may not […]

‘Robotech’ #18 Hints that there’s Something Else to Minmei (REVIEW)

I am still pretty thrilled with Titan Comics‘ re-imagining of Robotech, that stalwart nostalgic defender of early ’80s anime adaptations. The team behind Robotech has taken some daring chances in their storytelling, and so far have made a very well-traveled path seem new and unpredictable without losing track of what makes the journey worth taking […]

Roy Faces off Against Rick in Robotech #17 (REVIEW)

Claudia Grant has confronted the clone of Roy Fokker about the murder of Captain Henry Gloval, and barely survives the encounter in the opening pages of Robotech #17, Titan Comic’s excellent re-telling of the classic anime series. Simon Furman‘s script continues to take the well-established Robotech narrative and turn it coyly on its ear; Karl […]

The SDF-1 Makes a Blazing Return to Earth in Robotech #16

Reading Titan Comics’ Robotech series can be an interesting exercise for old-school protoculture addicts. Simon Furman isn’t slavishly retelling the original Macross era storyline, and fans of the existing canon might find themselves gnashing their teeth at that. Instead, they would be well served to give the series a chance; there are plenty of surprises […]

Robotech #15 Review: Acceptance in the New Age of Protoculture

The biggest challenge facing me while reviewing Robotech #15 was the 12 year old inside me, clinging desperately to this sacred, animated alter of my childhood. In reflecting on my resistance to Titan Comics‘ adaptation of the franchise, I realized that the creative team behind the book must have faced the same barriers while bringing […]

Titan To Kill Off Major Character Four Issues Into Robotech Series

And the Robotech universe will never be the same… as it was for the previous three issues! Titan Comics is nothing like the big two! They’re not about to sit around and wait until series attrition brings a comic book close to cancellation before killing off a major character to spike sales. Instead, despite Robotech […]

Simon Furman Announced To Write Robotech For Titan Comics

It was announced just now at the London Film and Comic Con, which I have somehow found myself attending as a guest. In a panel featuring Harmony Gold’s president of animation Tommy Yune and Titan Comics editor Chris Thompson, they were joined by famed Transformers writer and Death’s Head co-creator Simon Furman. And, as well as showing […]

Robotech #1 Review: Once Ahead Of The Curve, Now Behind The Times

Let’s get this part out of the way: I’m not familiar with Robotech. It’s before my time, and I’m not super big into anime or manga. There’s good stuff there, Akira is an amazing movie, and I have nothing against it. I watched Dragonball Z and Naruto growing up. I dabbled in Attack on Titan, […]
