Brian Wood will be joining Titan Comics to helm their brand-new Robotech series that will launch in 2017 based off the legendary 1980s animation by Harmony Gold.

Robotech first aired in 1985 and originally ran 85 episodes long detailing humanity’s struggle against a series of alien invasions from the gigantic Zentraedi to the mysterious Invid. It showcased the Veritech fighters that were able to transform to defend Earth against extra-terrestrial attacks.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Brian to expand the Robotech universe.” said Robotech’s Tommy Yune, “His bold approach to storytelling is thoughtful and will be full of surprises for fans.”

This foray into comics is the latest media initiative for the Robotech franchise which also has a live-action movie in development at Sony with director James Wan at the helm.

There is no release date as of yet and it is unclear who Wood will be working with on the art and coloring side.
