February 13, 2018 sees the hotly anticipated release of Robotech Volume 1: Countdown – the graphic novel collection of Titan’s critically acclaimed new comic adventure based on the iconic \’80s Sci-Fi TV Anime!
Written by Brian Wood (Star Wars, Briggs Land, X-Men), with art from Marco Turini (Assassin’s Creed) and colorist Marco Lesko, Robotech returns with a thrilling new tale that’s perfectly accessible to new fans, as well as providing a deeper layer of twists for old-school protoculture addicts! With a shift in the Robotech timeline, nothing will play out as you expect in this new critically acclaimed comic book adventure from Titan Comics.
\”Robotech has received direct adaptations in comics before, but it’s not been modernized like we’re doing it now. If you think of the new JJ Abrams’ Star Trek as an example of a way to honor something and also update it, that’s the approach we’re talking.” – Brian Wood
Robotech Volume 1: Countdown hits stores on February 13, and comes with a stunning cover by fan-favorite artist Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau and a special introduction by Greg Finley who voiced Gloval in the original animated TV series.
\”This newer, more mature take on Robotech by Titan Comics will most certainly be as universally embraced and loved as the original series, and for good reason. The same themes – shared humanity, beautifully human characters, emotionally charged human travails and relationships – will once again thrill lovers of Robotech and certainly bring many new Robotech fans into the fold!\” – Greg Finley
