Comments for Voltron Force Volume 2: Tournament of Lions

Voltron Force Volume 2: Tournament of Lions: 04/10/14

cover artVoltron Force Volume 2: Tournament of Lions by Brian Smith is the second of the new graphic novels series based on Voltron. The version I watched as a kid was imported, dubbed and mangled from the anime series Go Lion! But in this form it took on a life of its own and has spawned a 3D series and more recently a new animated one (which I have yet to see).

In the craziness that is sanctioned fan fic, a lot has happened. The original crew are still around but they have younger replacements in training. Meanwhile Zarkon and Haggar-of-the-annoying voice are gone and Lotor the perpetually obsessed is king. He's also now ripped.

In this episode (excuse me, volume) the trainees are looking to show off their stuff. To do this, they go to a competition off planet. Of course they are so busy showing off that working as a team slips their minds.

What I love about this graphic novel series is now it expands on what was a very limited world (or galaxy, per the opening narration). There was Arus, Doom, Earth (sort of) and sometimes a planet of the week. Usually, though, there was just Arus and Doom.

Five stars
