Titan Comics has announced that New York Times best-selling writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Briggs Land, Northlanders) will helm the brand-new Robotech comic series from Titan Comics, set to launch in 2017 – based on the legendary 80s animation by Harmony Gold.
First airing in the USA in 1985, Robotech was the gateway to anime for many fans – capturing their imagination with its epic generational storyline involving war, romance, and, of course, the transforming Veritech fighters that 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.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Brian to expand the Robotech universe.” said Robotech’s Tommy Yune, “His bold approach to storytelling is thoughtful and will be full of surprises for fans.”
It’s a big time to be a Robotech fan with this new project coming out at Titan Comics as well a live-action movie adaption in the works from James Wan (Aquaman, Furious 7) at Sony Pictures.
