Death of Major Robotech Character in Robotech #4!

A major character will be killed off in Titan Comics’ new Robotech series! This will pave the way for a stunning new arc penned by fan favorite writer Brian Wood and legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman.

The comic series takes into account every iteration of the Robotech series, and casts a fresh eye over classic characters from the iconic ‘80s sci-fi anime.

Now, the series (written by Brian Wood with art by Marco Turini) is set to scale new heights with a dramatic first season climax that will change the face of Robotech forever… including the death of a major member of the team! But will it be Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant or Henry Gloval who pays the ultimate price?

All will be revealed in Robotech #4 (on sale October 25, 2017) or read the story in full in Robotech Vol. 1 (on sale February 13, 2018) – a must-have collection for Robotech fans!

Following this hotly-anticipated finale, the next chapter in Titan’s Robotech comic saga will see Simon Furman join writer Brian Wood to chronicle the ongoing adventures of the SDF-1!

The new second arc kicks-off on December 13 with issue #5 and finds the inhabitants of Macross City reeling from recent events and mourning the loss of a beloved friend. However, it’s not long before they are forced to head to Mars in an attempt to escape the advancing forces of the mysterious Zentraedi!

The issue debuts with a fantastic cover by Jem and the Holograms artist Jen Bartel, plus, variant covers by Blair Shedd, an Action Figure variant, a stunning wraparound cosplay variant, and a shocking ‘Funeral For A Friend’ variant!
