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.

The debut issue comes with stunning covers to collect by amazing talents like​ ​Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy), Michael Dialynas (The Woods), Blair Shedd (Doctor Who), The Waltrip Bros.(Robotech) and more.
