Titan Comics’ Robotech Gets Its Writer

Titan Comics has announced that New York Times best-selling writer Brian Wood will helm the brand-new Robotech comic series from Titan Comics, set to launch in 2017 – based on the legendary 80s animation by Harmony Gold.

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.

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.

A live-action movie adaption by director James Wan is currently in development at Sony.

Titan has promised further details on the creative team very shortly.
