Legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman joins writer Brian Wood (DMZ) to chronicle the ongoing adventures of the SDF-!!

Note – Brian Wood has had issues in the past with sexually harassing an artist – http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2013/11/15/tess-fowler-brian-wood-and-harassment-in-the-comic-industry/

That may not affect some readers, but some wish to be informed and consume their entertainment in greater context.

Robotech #1

Not just another retelling of the Macross saga … In July, the story continues as we bring Carl Macek’s original vision full circle. Taking into account every iteration of the series, this new Robotech #1 casts a fresh eye over classic characters like Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Lynn Minmei, Roy Fokker, Claudia Grant, and Henry Gloval.
