The Art of Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles
A must-have for Robotech fans--a full-color tie-in to the new film! Premiering in 1985, Robotech is fondly remembered for its transforming fighter jets, distinctive red logo, and pop-idol heroine. Now twenty-, thirty-, and forty-something fans await the further adventures and ever-expanding lines of merchandise in Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles.
The year is 2044. The people of Earth are finally free from their alien occupiers and prepare to search for Admiral Hunter's missing fleet. But a deadly new adversary threatens to test the limits of the Expeditionary Force's use of Shadow Technology. . .
Included here is everything fans are looking for--series history, plot, character, and mecha guides, plus page after page of detailed film art and drawings--assembled by the film's director and other production insiders.
The film is due for theatrical release in 2006 by FUNimation, with a major DVD release to follow. Robotech is the flagship work of Harmony Gold USA, one of the industry's top studios, and the film marks the return of the much-discussed series of the 1980s that helped create the anime market outside Japan.
Known for his manga/anime style of storytelling, Shadow Chronicles director Tommy Yune broke into the mainstream comic industry in 1999 as writer and artist of the critically acclaimed Speed Racer: Born to Race, followed by Racer X and Danger Girl: Kamikaze. Yune is based in Los Angeles.
Carl Macek is an anime veteran and was executive producer of the original Robotech series.
