Comic-Con News: Dynamite Entertainment has announced that it has acquired from Harmony Gold and DC Comics the rights to publish a Robotech comic book series, though Dynamite plans to publish the first ever Robotech/Voltron crossover series first.  Dynamite has been publishing Voltron comics since 2011 (see "Dynamite's 'Voltron' Launches in December"), and the publisher expects that the teaming of the popular Robotech cast of pilots with the five lions of Voltron will generate lots of fan excitement.  Dynamite’s new standalone Robotech series will debut after the Voltron/Robotech crossover ends.
Both Robotech and Voltron were popular cartoon series in the U.S. in the 1980s, and both Robotech and Voltron were cobbled together for the American market by combining several similarly-themed anime series.  Not only were these series popular in their own right, they also helped pave the way for the anime and manga boom that took off in the U.S. in the 1990s.
Look for more information about the Robotech/Voltron crossover and Dynamite’s new Robotech series to be released in the coming weeks.
