The world of the sci-fi mech series ‘Robotech’ is returning to the pages of comic books with Titan Comics launching a brand new series titled ‘Robotech: Rick Hunter.’ The new series will hit comic book stores and digital outlets on August 2, 2023.
Den of Geek reports, “After relaunching the line in 2017, Titan paused on new Robotech comics in 2020 thanks in part to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Brandon Easton (Marvel Action: Spider-Man, Judge Dredd: False Witness) has been tapped to write the series while artist Simone Ragazzoni (Power Rangers Universe, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II) is taking on the illustrations.
“Now the comics are back and they’ll be focusing on a fan-favorite lead character in the Robotech universe. Rick Hunter, from the first generation Macross Saga. Below we’ve got an exclusive synopsis and images from the new series,” they continued.
DoG also released an exclusive synopsis for the series, “THE WAIT IS OVER…ROBOTECH LAUNCHES INTO AN EPIC NEW SERIES! After the devastating events of the Macross saga, RICK HUNTER must face an all new threat, along with the ghosts of his past — when a Zentraedi splinter group attacks Yokohama, Rick is called to investigate! Piloting the new prototype YF-4 Veritech, Rick encounters old friends and new enemies, all while recounting the moments of his life that shaped most epic moments in the ROBOTECH universe!”
Titan Comics also revealed “Cover A” designed by illustrator Inhyuk Lee (Darkhawk: Heart Of The Hawk):
No word yet on the continuation of the ‘Robotech Remix’ comic book series that was put on hiatus during pandemic lockdowns.
Robotech has had several prolific comic book titles from DC Comics, Revell, Comico, Eternity, Academy, Antarctic Press, Wildstorm, and Dynamite before heading to Titan Comics.
North American license holder Harmony Gold USA has reached a deal with the Japanese entertainment studio Big West to adapt Macross titles for possible Robotech continuations.
‘Hawkeye’ executive producer and director Rhys Thomas has been tapped to direct a live action Robotech film.
