Robotech Returns in Crossover with Voltron

We can expect some serious clashing between the two.

This is one of those announcements you never thought you'd hear even though it makes perfect sense. Dynamite Entertainment has acquired the rights to publish comics based on Robotech in a sub-licensing arrangement with DC Entertainment and Harmony Gold USA. To start things off, they will be publishing a Robotech/Voltron crossover, marking the first time the two properties have collided.

"Robotech and Voltron are two of the most recognizable anime series that defined '80s pop culture," says Tommy Yune, creative director at Harmony Gold and mastermind behind the upcoming crossover. "Both franchises have endured in their popularity today and fans have long speculated of an epic crossover between the universes. The opportunity to do so is an honor, and it's a welcome challenge to construct a storyline that works well with key characters on both sides. Most important of all, it's going to be a lot of fun with plenty of surprises."

Voltron has been at Dynamite since 2011 and Voltron's 30th Anniversary is coming up. Dynamite also plans to launch a new Robotech series in the wake of the crossover.
