Sept. 24, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA:
Fresh off the blockbuster comic series team up announcement this summer from Dynamite Entertainment, New York Comic Con will host a joint panel of two of anime's greatest legends - Voltron® and Robotech - for the first time on Friday October 11th at 11:00 a.m. in Room 1A14! This historic event will be the first time representatives of both properties will be together discussing the much buzzed about Robotech / Voltron crossover from Dynamite Comics.

To give fans the latest news, sneak peeks, and insights into the creation of this historic crossover, World Events Productions (WEP,LLC) and Harmony Gold U.S.A. can confirm the following members of the creative team will be attending the New York Comic Con:

Tommy Yune is co-writing the story with Dynamite Comics who will produce and distribute the comics. The first issue of the Robotech / Voltron Crossover is expected to be released in December 2013.

“Voltron fans at New York Comic Con have always shown us tremendous amount of love and enthusiasm,” commented WEP's Jeremy Corray. “This opportunity to form up with our friends at Harmony Gold for the first ever Robotech / Voltron crossover panel has been a pop-culture event years in the making that fans of classic '80s cartoons, anime, and giant robots won't want to miss. Fans planning their panel hits should mark it down now.”

"Robotech and Voltron share many common roots as two of the best known series in anime history,” said Tommy Yune, Creative Director, Harmony Gold. “We're thrilled to be a part of this exciting project with our colleagues from World Events Productions."

“The New York Comic-Con is the perfect venue for the inaugural Robotech / Voltron teamup panel! I think fans are really going to enjoy it!,” said Kevin McKeever, Vice President of Marketing for Robotech.
