ROBOTECH's Minmei movie by AdamWarren ROBOTECH's Minmei movie by AdamWarren
Behold, another old-ish piece (circa 2003) I dug up recently. This is the line art for the variant cover of Robotech: Love and War #2, a miniseries that Wildstorm put out during the brief but colorful period when they held the Robotech license.

IIRC, this is supposed to be a movie-poster image from one of the kung fu flicks Minmei did with her cousin(?*), presumably featuring the two facing off against an evil monk of some sort. Note her cousin's highly suspicious resemblance to "Dead Prettyboy"** from my Titans: Scissors, Paper, Stone DC one-shot, and the fact that Minmei appears rather more racktastic than I recall... (Well, it's entirely possible that her chest was Photoshopped for the movie poster.)

Why, here's another Robotech illo that :iconjoewight: and yours truly likewise did for Wildstorm:


*Alas, my recollection of Macross TV-era continuity is hazy (if not wholly nonexistent, given that I never saw the TV version) at best...

**Note also that, arguably, I should've called him "Pretty Deadboy" instead.

Just ran across this. I am a big fan Mr. Warren. I wished both wildstorm and AP could have made their shots at Robotech a success.

If any one is interested the movie staring Lynn Minmei and Lynn Kyle is called "Small White Dragon." A combonation Kung Fu/Action/Morale/Propaganda movie shot on the SDF-1. A army of giant foreign invaders takes over a peaceful Chinese farming village. A young couple is flung into the search for a power to drive off the giants. Lets just say that the movie was not big on subtleties. Oh and Kyle kissed Minmei at least once during the movie sending Rick out of the theater. Ah, love triangles.

A better version of Shao Pai Lon (the movie's title and the theme song of the same name sung by Minmay) than the one in Macross. When ADV came out with the remastered, dual-language thinpak version of Macross, I pounced on that puppy promptly. Kai Fun is the name of Minmay's cousin who is a total d-bag to his cousin and to the members of the military (check out his boundless gratitude after Hikaru rescues him and Minmay from the Zentraedi--yes, that was sarcasm!). Kai Fun is also creepily in love with her and tries to run her personal as well as her professional life. I wouldn't have been averse to Hikaru failing to rescue him that time. Awesome series and striking illo from Warren.
