The first issue of Titan's Robotech comic book relaunch doesn't hit stores until July 26, but final order cutoff is this Mnday, June 26, so Titan is hoping to get readers, and retailers, hyped with a lettered preview, and an invitation to return to the franchise's roots:
Return to the fan-favorite Macross Saga that began the classic Robotech franchise, as hotshot Veritech pilot Roy Fokker and skilled rookie Rick Hunter are pulled into an intergalactic war when the Earth is invaded by the insidious Zentraedi!
In traditional comic book relaunch fashion, Titan promises that nothing in the Robotech universe will ever be the same again.
Robotech returns courtesy of writer Brian Wood, artist Marco Turini and colorist Marco Lesko – and nothing will ever be the same again!
See, we told you! And what's that, you ask? "Are there variant covers?" Of course there are variant covers!

Not just another retelling of the Macross saga …
In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek's original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, this new Robotech #1 casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval. Brian Wood and Marco Turini take us back to a Macross Island where *nothing* can be taken for granted.
