First airing in the USA in 1985, Robotech captured audience’s imaginations with its epic generational storylines involving war, romance, and, of course, the transforming Veritech fighters which defend the Earth against extra-terrestrial attacks.

Produced by Harmony Gold USA, the original 85-episode series delved into humanity’s struggle against a series of alien invasions, from the gigantic Zentraedi to the mysterious Invid, battling for control of advanced alien technology that crash-landed on Earth. Now, return to the Robotech Saga for all-new adventures!

“At Titan we’re thrilled to be publishing brand new Robotech comic books,” said Direct Sales & Marketing Manager Ricky Claydon. “It’s a privilege to contribute to the rich galactic tapestry of such a beloved franchise. Titan Comics promises to delight original fans and newcomers alike.”

Tommy Yune, President of Animation at Harmony Gold USA added, “Inspired storytelling is a cornerstone of the Robotech universe and we’re absolutely thrilled to have a partner with a respected editorial pedigree as Titan.”

With annual global meet-ups and conventions, a fast-growing social media following, as well an avid collector market for toys and merchandise, Robotech fans are passionate supporters of this amazing cult franchise.

Titan Comics’ Robotech series is set to debut early 2017. Look for announcements of the creative team very shortly.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
