With the success of Voltron #1 (see our story HERE), Dynamite Entertainment is bringing back the iconic Defender of the Universe in an all-new adventure. Written by Brandon Thomas, illustrated by Craig Cermak, with covers by Admira Wijaya and Jonathan Lau, Voltron: Year One will be released wherever comic books are sold beginning April 2012.
"Finally, one of the greatest (though misunderstood) characters in the entire Voltron mythos gets a chance in the spotlight, as we dig into his time leading Space Explorer Squadron #686, soon to be known as the legendary Voltron Force," says writer Brandon Thomas. "In the fateful missions leading up to the rediscovery of Voltron, any and all burning questions will be answered - what's the real reason Sven's tenure piloting the Blue Lion was always destined to be a short one? What event ensured that Keith and Lance would forever be rivals? Why has Pidge always been the most dangerous member of the team? And the biggest burning question of all - did the Galaxy Alliance send this particular squad of space explorers after Voltron because they thought they would succeed or because they knew they would fail?"Before they were known as the legendary Voltron Force, they were Space Explorer Squadron #686 of the Galaxy Alliance -- four young men, led by Commander Sven, tasked with keeping the Earth safe and the skies clear in an increasingly dangerous universe. It was no surprise that central command came to them first with an impossible rescue mission and asked them to face an enemy even they didn't truly understand - one that threatens the fragile coalition of planets they've risked their lives to maintain.
