Tomorrow, A Major Character Dies In Robotech #4 – And It's Not Roy Fokker (SPOILERS)

Ten years ago, a mysterious ship crashed on Macross Island in the South Pacific. In the intervening years, the people of Earth have used the 'Robotechnology' from the ship to significantly advance their own technology.On the launch day of the Super-Dimension Fortress (the SDF-1), Earth is attacked by mysterious aliens. The SDF-1 is eventually forced to 'space-fold' into space – but takes a chunk of Macross City with them (the city and its citizens have been moved inside the massive SDF-1). The SDF-1 is now lost in space, while the aliens prepare to attack again…

And things are changing. At MCM London Comic Con, Titan Comics talked about a death coming to Robotech #4, out tomorrow. And old-time fans knew what was coming. Or did they? Because in the original anime the major death was Roy Fokker.

However, in Titan Comics' reboot of the series, it's not Roy. It's actually Henry Gloval or Minmei who bites the bullet at the end of Issue #4, both heroically fighting off the alien attack.
