Fans of mecha anime, particularly Western fans who were introduced to it in the 80s via localizations should get ready for December, as World Events Productions and Harmony Gold have partnered with Dynamite Entertainment in order to produce a comic series that will feature Voltron (Beast King GoLion and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV) and Robotech (Macross,Genesis Climber Mospeada, and Super Dimension Century Southern Cross).

The project will be discussed at NYCC Friday October 11th at 11:00 a.m. in Room 1A14 with representatives:

Jeremy Corray – Voltron Creative Director
Tommy Yune – Creative Director
Bob Koplar – Vice President, World Events Productions
Kevin McKeever – Vice President of Marketing for Robotech
Joseph Rybandt – Senior Editor, Dynamite Comics

“Voltron fans at New York Comic Con have always shown us tremendous amount of love and enthusiasm,” commented WEP’s Jeremy Corray. “This opportunity to form up with our friends at Harmony Gold for the first ever Robotech / Voltron crossover panel has been a pop-culture event years in the making that fans of classic ’80s cartoons, anime, and giant robots won’t want to miss. Fans planning their panel hits should mark it down now.”

“Robotech and Voltron share many common roots as two of the best known series in anime history,” said Tommy Yune, Creative Director, Harmony Gold. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this exciting project with our colleagues from World Events Productions.”
