Titan Comics Reveal Robotech KARL KERSCHL Variant Covers

ROBOTECH  the iconic ‘80s Sci-Fi anime, the gateway to Anime for many of us,  returns to comics this July​ ​26 from Titan Comics​ ​with​ ​​a set of special​ ​covers by Karl Kerschl​ – ​superstar artist of Gotham Academy and Isola!

These​ ​​five stunning ROBOTECH character spotlight covers are available​ ​across all four issues​ of the series​, with an extra 1:10 incentive variant​ ​on issue #1 featuring fan-favorite​ ​​Lynn ​Minmei.







The all-new ROBOTECH comic series returns to Macross Island, the​ ​place where it all began! Writer Brian Wood, artist Marco Turini and​ ​colorist Marco Lesko have crafted 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.

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.

ROBOTECH​ ​#​1 hits stores on July 26 and is available to order now from May PREVIEWS.

    This brings back so many great memories of the 80’s. I was lucky enough to pick up a NM+ copy of Macross #1 from Comico about a year ago and it is one of my favorite books in my PC. The new series is written by Brian Wood (Dark Horse Star Wars, DMZ, Briggs Land)? I’m definitely in!

      I am looking forward to this, and with an Artgerm regular cover…. I also was a huge fan of the toys as a kid. I loved Robotech and wanted to be Rick Hunter. On a side note, some of the early 80’s transformers were Japanese Robotech toys.

    Don’t get me started! I also loved watching after school Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato). When I was a kid, i wanted to fly the Argo. The Wave Motion Gun was the coolest thing!

    I ordered the Artgerm cover, guess I need to order the #1Lynn variant. The others are all B covers, so that should be the tough one to make the set.

    Carl Macek owned a local comic book store when I first started collecting. although he sold it right around that time due to his success with Robotech… my friends knew him fairly well and when we would go to a convention that he was at he would always let us hang out with him for a little while and talk to us about all the cool things going on with comics and anime at the time…The city over at another local comic shop was where Rob Liefeld worked. Extremely nice guy and never shunned new/young collectors! Enjoyed helping them out (including me) when a question would come up…That and Stan Lee was at almost all of the local LA conventions at the time and was beyond easy to approach (no security or assistants surrounding him)… Gotta say, sometimes one truly doesn’t know how good things were until they are gone, but wow, did I get into collecting at the right time! Good memories!

    I’m sticking with Artgem regular cover. It’s just how Robotech feels to me
