Macross Chronicle Magazine, Issue 30

If you like Macross artwork, tech specs, and character sheets, then check out the Macross Chronicle Magazine!  It’s a bi-weekly magazine published by Shogakukan Shueisha Production Company.  Now you can have a Macross experience every other week!

Here’s Issue #30, which features the VB-6 Koenig Monster on the cover.

This issue has a nice drawing of a couple of veritech fighters.

And here’s a character sheet on Lynn Minmay.

What surprised me was how thin Issue 30 is.  It’s 34 pages, excluding the cover!  You’ll also note the 3 puncholes in each page.  You can buy a binder and put all the pages in it.  Compared to the Variable Fighter Master File:  VF-1 Valkyrie, the Macross Chronicle magazine is really small!
