Indie comic publisher Titan is about to turn Robotech on its head (kind of). With Robotech Remix from writer Brenden Fletcher.
I have to admit, I don’t know what about this new Robotech series would be radically different from the classic cartoon. At first glance, it doesn’t seem like too much honestly.
A new Robotech saga starts now! Robotech is reborn from the ashes of Event Horizon! New writer Brenden Fletcher (Motorcrush, Isola) and artist Elmer Damaso(Robotech/Voltron, Marvel Mangaverse) boot up Robotech: Remix, an all-new series that will take beloved characters and iconic mecha to places fans have never seen beforeTitan press release
That’s the description of what the series will be, but the press release follows it by talking about the classic that every fan knows.
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.Titan press release
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.
There’s no mention of what the big changes are for this “remix” of a comic book series. In any event, there’s no denying that Damaso’s art is fantastic, as you’ll see in the gallery below.
I guess we’ll just have to wait till October 9th, when Robotech: Remix #1 hits the standard to see how much things have changed in the famed property.
