Titan Reveals New ‘Robotech’ Art For Upcoming Series [SDCC 2016]
I think it's pretty clear at this point that I am super into both giant transforming robots and epic battles in outer space. But despite the fact that I'm squarely in the Venn diagram for the appeal, I've never really gotten into Robotech. It always seemed like something that I missed my chance to really dive into when I was younger.
But now, it looks like I'm getting another chance. Thursday night at San Diego Comic Con, Titan Comics showcased art for its planned Robotech comics series in partnership with Harmony Gold USA, with pieces from Caspar Wijngaard, Luis Guerrero, Mariano Laclaustra, and Antonio Fuso. We don't know anything else at this point, but while we try to untangle the mysteries of the new Robotech series, we at least have some pretty art to look at.
For those of you who are as unfamiliar with the series as I am, Robotech was originally adapted for American audiences from three different anime series, Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada. Despite drawing from three otherwise unrelated sources --- a choice made by production company Harmony Gold in order to fill the 65-episode syndication quota that we have for daily cartoons here --- the show was marked by its complexity and drama, leading to a die-hard fandom that still exists today.
As for the content, release schedule, creative teams, and approach of the new series, Titan is leaving all of that for future announcements, and providing just these exclusive teasers for our readers at ComicsAlliance. Let the speculation begin!
