Not a good starting point, should probably avoid

by -

If you're someone like me who has no prior knowledge of Macross and its American localization Robotech it'll seem tempting to try and get into it through this comic, however I genuinely cannot recommend it. Pretty much nothing about it works
-Artwork and panel layouts are kind of awkward and lack an oomph story about space and transforming mech suits. The artstyle goes for this somewhat realistic look to the characters but doesn't capture how people emote
-Dialogue is kind of disjointed and incoherent
-Characterization is incredibly weak in favor of getting to plot points
-And it's a really short volume with only 4 issues, in contrast to other series which typically have 5
It's overall ideas and plot are ok but due to everything else they feel pretty weak, even then the setup and some of the broad ideas are coming from the material it's adapting and remixing so that's not even something the comic can claim for itself

A solid reboot overall

by

The art is kind of a letdown however that’s fixed later on. It’s a solid reboot however some things like Minmei’s personality was pushed to far in the opposite direction
