I was hoping Harmony Gold would allow IDW to develop new Robotech comics. That company has already succeeded with various other franchises, so why not Robotech?

E.T.A.?

Ordered a copy at the comic shop, so I guess I'll be informed when it ariives.

Anyone any idea what it will be about? The released cover suggests it will take place during Macross Saga.

Not an irrational choice. The only one of the three series edited into Robotech that was a succes in Japan.
It was the series with the largest number of episodes.
Besides, compare Robotech with other series of two or three anime edited into one. Robotech, Voltron, Macron 1; fans identified with the characters of the first subseries and lost interest once they got replaced by new ones within the same series.

On the other hand, 'Macross' has already been told. I would be more interested in how things continue after # 37. Does not necessarily have to be 'Sentinels', but I'd rather see how the characters developed further. There is more to both Max and Miriya than we saw in Macross and it would be interesting to actually see Rick and Lisa as commanders. Same with Minmei as independant adult, instead of first being lived by her fans and later dominated by Kyle. And what abou Dr. Lang? At the end of 'Macross'he was no way near the position of high commander as he was at the beginning of 'Sentinels'. Why the sudden rise? Chief scientist is one thing, but how did he became commander?

Does Robotech really have to be about war? A lot of series - live action, animated, comic - about the military do not actually involve war. You could deal with smaller problems: criminals, humans who reject the global government, Zentraedi having difficulties adjusting to civilian life (not necessarily Malcontents, terrorists. Or helping out in case of calamity or natural disaster.

It would not necessarily have to fill the gap between Macross and Sentinels. There are simply lots of stories that could be told between the first and the second Robotech Wars. Those would appear more to me than simply new stories taking place during the first war.

Robotech: Battlecry was amazing. It told a Reconstruction-Era centric story revolving around totally original characters set in the Macross Saga timeline. It was a completely original story which captured the essence of what made Robotech great.

There have been attempts at telling other stories also. Jack McKinney, for example, wrote some "filler" novels, such as The Masters Gambit, which attempt to explain the period between Macross and Southern Cross, how Dana left Earth to join the REF onboard the SDF-3, and other things.

The problem with the Sentinels is that, the premise isn't bad. Fans want to see more of Rick, Lisa, Max and Miriya, Minmay, but their absence must be explained. So they got command of the REF, and went off in search of the Masters. Little did they know the Masters were on their way to Earth, and they got caught up fighting a war against the Invid Regent, who contrary to his Regis counterpart, was exploring DE-evolution as a path to power, and was the equivalent of a drunk abusive wife beater husband. This was GENIUS. But the actual telling of those stories was rather lacking, and some of it was just total nonsense. We won't even talk about End of the Circle here.

Same thing with Shadow Chronicles. There are quite a few New Gen fans, who would want to see more Scott and Ariel. Combining that with more Rick sounds, on paper, to be a win-win. But it failed to deliver Rick, and arguably, it failed to deliver Scott as well. (He has the right voice actor but his behaviour is totally off). Adding insult to injury, the story was laughable, and if the leak I read about Shadow Rising was legit (and I have no reason to believe that it wasn't), it's probably a good thing that it is in production limbo for all eternity.

Palladium RPGs are probably your best bet for more Robotech. Those have been going strong for decades now. Come to think of it, aren't you a fan of those already? It's telling when their kickstarter raises literally 100 times more funding than HG's Robotech Academy.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

"Not just another retelling of the Macross saga ... In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek's original vision full circle."


I assume this to mean that End of the Circle/Robotech 3: Odyssey will finally become canon.

Dark Days are Coming.

So instead of doing what fans WANT - working out the premisses they always liked - they decide to do the opposite and work out what fans never liked anyway.

Is it too late to cancel my comic order?
