Titan Comics Robotech #1 Goes To Third Printing

Robotech #1 Third Printing Cover - Michael Dialynas

Titan Comics has announced that due to incredible fan and retailer demand, the second print of Robotech #1 Cover A by Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau has sold out again at distributor level and is now going to an amazing third print. This new printing of Issue #1 features a variation on the original Issue #1 cover by Michael Dialynas (The Woods), and hits stores on Wednesday 4th October 2017.

Last month, Titan brought Carl Macek‘s original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, Titan’s new Robotech comic series casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval.

Titan’s all-new Robotech series returns to Macross Island, where it all began! Brian Wood, Marco Turini and Marco Lesko have crafted a thrilling new tale that’s perfectly accessible to new fans, as well as providing a deeper layer of twists forold-school protoculture addicts!

First airing in the United States 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.

Michael Dialynas will be signing copies of this cover at Titan Comics Booth #2142 during this year’s New York Comic-Con celebrations.

Robotech #1 third printing hits stores on 4th October 2017. Retailers can order this Michael Dialynas cover by using order code JUL178626
