Robotech, the classic 80s anime TV series — currently airing on Crunchyroll — expands into a new comic series this summer from Transformers and Kamen Rider Zero-One writer, Brandon Easton, and Power Rangers artist, Simone Ragazzoni. Robotech: Rick Hunter is a four-part mini-series published by Titan Comics, launching August 2.
The Robotech anime series first aired in the USA in 1985. Produced by Harmony Gold USA, the 85-episode series hooked viewers’ imagination with its epic storylines involving war, romance, and the transforming Veritech fighters that defend the Earth against extra-terrestrial attacks.
Set after the devastating events of the Macross saga, Robotech: Rick Hunter will see Rick Hunter face an all new threat, along with the ghosts of his past — when a Zentraedi splinter group attacks Yokohama, Rick is called to investigate. Piloting the new prototype YF-4 Veritech, Rick encounters old friends and new enemies, all while recounting the moments of his life that shaped most epic moments in the Robotech universe.
