I am a former comic book artist, currently working in the automotive industry at a new car dealership. I discovered Macross in November of 1983 when I purchased the Macross 4 Part II vinyl figure set at a Spencer's Gifts store. That created a monster, as they say! I received my first Macross book, which was one of the small photo books on the series, on the day my first son was born! What a great day!!!
