Question here for all of you fellow fans:  I have been wondering for many years -- what is the very first printed appearance of Macross?  I'm a long time comic book collector and have always wanted to find out the answer to this.  So far, the earliest print I own is a manga that appears to be from 1982 (see attached image.)

Any help is appreciated!  Thank you!

In any printed media?  Or the first officially licensed all Macross publication?

If in any printed media...it may have been one of the many anime magazines of the era...or perhaps the promo poster advertising the TV series?

Thank you for the reply! 

Yes, I'm trying to figure out what is the very first instance of print...I like your thoughts about a poster or a magazine (those both sound like very legit possibilities.)

I wonder how we can go about figuring out what it might actually be...

As for the picture I posted -- is that manga the earliest printed manga of Macross at least?

I think the earlist mention of macross in print would have been from one of the anime magazines....there were several.....for example...here is a kids TV magazine from October 1982.....the month the show started....I have some anime mags from before that month that promote the show...if I can find them I will post....

Being SDFM was the first Macross show, technically, that would be the "first" manga.....however, I usually think of manga as a B/W comic....but that's just me

That's fantastic!  I'd love to see the others if you find them.

Thank you.

For now you can browse the Macross magazine section....

It will be a while before I can pull out any of my old magazines....

But from here, you can see that the magazine issue of "The Anime" is from September 1982...a month before Macross went on the air....

Take a look, there are others from September 1982...but that month seems to be the earliest mentions of Macross in a printed format....
