The first issue of the new Robotech comic is coming August 2nd, and the reviews are in!
COMIC BASTARDS: 5/5
"Brian Wood is an excellent storyteller and does a fantastic job of being faithful to the original without shamelessly copying it. Whatever changes he makes are warranted and only serve to bolster the plot, and whatever he keeps needed to stay"
SNAP POW: 9/10
"Robotech #1 is exactly what I wanted it to be and so much more. With a high caliber creative team and a clear love for the original series, this is one title from Titan that more than earns a spot on your pull-list. So when you shop on Wednesday do the right thing and give into your 80s nostalgia because this is one issue you’ll be happy to add to your collection."
COMIC CRUSADERS: 5/5
"This is a fresh introduction to the story which the mid 80’s television series was based upon. It does not come across as a tribute, but simply uses the original source material to lay the groundwork for the new series. Taking this approach is a masterful way to make sure fans, new and old alike can be on the same page with discussing the material."
"Courtesy of Titan Comics, ROBOTECH #1 does so many things right. The story feels fast paced in the best way, never halting while still providing the necessary information to understand the plot. Marco Turini’s art is beautifully descriptive, and Wood’s script leaves room for silence, allowing the art to speak for itself. "
CRITICAL BLAST: 5/5
"If you are a fan of ROBOTECH, or a fan of science-fiction, this comic book is a fantastic read. With promises of a "deeper layer of twists for old-school protoculture addicts" it's sure to bring back memories, while making new ones."
THE HULKING REVIEWER: 8.2/10
"Robotech #1 is a solid start for the series balancing action, character development and an entertaining story. The story fast forwards to the right point so even though the Robotech Project has been in place for years there’s still a lot more to learn about it and the characters. "
OUTRIGHT GEEKERY: 4/5
"For new readers not familiar with Robotech, maybe you’ve heard of this legendary series but never sat down to watch it, I say start with this version. Wood and Turini have crafted a striking new take here without all the baggage and it seems geared towards a more sophisticated audience than what the original series intended. For old fans of the show, if you can come at this with an open mind and give this a chance I think we might be in store for something wonderful."
