Episode 218 - Robotech Defenders #2

Episode 218: Robotech Defenders #2

For advanced Precursor aliens, they really didn’t think this plan through.

Robotech Defenders was cut back from its planned three issues to only two, which speaks volumes about the sort of material we're dealing with here. The result manages to be even more of a mess then the first third, er, half, as more and more plot elements are introduced at a break-neck pace which stops only for more truly stumping block exposition. Somebody dies (and nobody cares) as the eldritch abominations unleash their completely pointless master plan resulting in the robots taking control of the comic and the everyone else wondering if their dead colleague was the lucky one. Plot-holes abound as the story gallops towards the inevitable and horribly rushed conclusion resulting in a mess that nobody would ever speak of or acknowledge again! It's everything you love about the eighties, only not!
