    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Aug 31, 2017

    Right now, I am looking for two things in this new Robotech comic book. One, I want it to be a well-produced comic book with good writing, good art, and overall engaging storytelling. Two, I want it to recall classic Robotech while also exploring new possibilities for the series and also going places the original might have, but did not. So far, I'm getting both of those things from this very entertaining comic book. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Sep 11, 2017

    Those flaws aside, the story does progress smoothly and it's still an entertaining read. It may not quite live up to the hype and the expectations of fans, but it's an exciting instalment in the Robotech saga regardless and should please many readers. Read Full Review

    Revisiting Robotech in this streamlined and modernized way is going to be a challenge for me, though there are areas I'm curious to see how they'll be handled. Brian Wood is bringing a familiar approach to doing such a project but I'm convinced they needed to offer something new for long time fans to get into as well, either really expanding the tale here rather than streamlining or putting a companion side series to explore other areas alongside it. Turini's designs are solid enough with what they do but it's hard to get past the designs that I've been intimately familiar with for decades to something new like this, removing much of what made them who they are for more real world looking designs. This series is definitely going to be something of a struggle. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Aug 30, 2017

    Turini on art continues from last issue in giving the reader some crisp linework - his Veritech fighters look really good, and I do enjoy that they are distinctive enough from other mecha out there to make them easily recognizable. Read Full Review

    Robotech #2 works better than the first issue, and as a modernized and streamlined retelling of the original show, it does a good job. However, if you've been a fan of the show for years, like myself, it doesn't have enough new elements to make this worth your while. Dr. J gives this a" Read Full Review
