“Wait, where were we going again?”

Robotech II: The Sentinels book 3 #16

Academy Comics, Ltd (April, 1995)

“Where Humans Dare!’

WRITER/ARTIST: Jason Waltrip

LETTERER: Mike DeLepine/Alphabet Soup studios

The group makes it past the guards they stumbled on, and Jack gets the idea of having the bear-like Lron and Crysta wear the guards armor. This actually partially works since it does eventually get them to the rescue their human allies, but learn that Kami is outside where the rebellion is going on and Rem has been sent to Haydon on the ship Wolfe missed when he was drunkenly making out with Praxia. Meanwhile, the rebels rescue Kami and others headed to the slave work pits.

What they got right: Lron took my joke. “This isn’t going to work.” “Be positive.” “Okay, I’m positive this isn’t going to work.” That made me happy. Also seeing Jack’s trick work a bit. There’s a lot of good action in this one too.

What they got wrong: Once again some of the sound effects are in boxes. And no, I’m not buying that the black-and-white artwork is to blame because I’ve seen plenty of black and white comics that didn’t do that.

Recommendation: Yep, still recommending the series.

    Another awesome cover! It really makes me wish these Sentinels comics had been in color. Tronix, would you consider coloring a page or two of a Sentinels comic with your digital art program, so we can see what a colorized Sentinels comic book would have looked like?
