Titan Comics will launch a new Robotech comic in July, bringing the popular 1980s anime back to comics in a story by Brian Wood and Marco Turini. To promote the launch, they’ve released a trailer and preview pages from the book, which you can find below.
Launched on American TV as Robotech: The Macross Saga back in 1985, Robotech found its way into comics thanks to Comico, which published it for several years. The property moved from publisher to publisher in the 1990s and 2000s, including Eternity Comics, Antarctic Press and WildStorm. More recently, Dynamite Comics published a Voltron/Robotech crossover comic.
Here’s how Titan is describing the new series:
Writer: Brian Wood
Artist: Marco Turini
Publisher: Titan Comics

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.
