Voltron Force Volume 3: Twin Trouble: 07/02/14
If I worried about guilty pleasure reading, which I thankfully don't, these Voltron Force comics would be on the list. Though I was introduced to the series via a previous year's CYBILs, I have continued reading them out of sheer nostalgic glee. The series wraps up with volume 6, but I would eagerly read further ones if they were ever published.
Voltron Force Volume 3: Twin Trouble by Brian Smith introduces Lotor's twin nieces. They request entry into the academy, claiming to be there with peaceful intentions. Their appearance opens up a can worms with characters taking sides: those for and against letting them in.
Ultimately Allura says yes, giving them the benefit of the doubt. Now given her own awkward personal history with Lotor, the cross species stalker, it was surprising to see her set aside years of experience with the hope that they were in fact telling the truth.
Now this being Voltron, there's always a moment of betrayal. It was predictable and inevitable. BUT in Volume 6 that apparent betrayal is called into question. As the series stops there, there's no real chance to revisit the twins and see where their loyalties really lie.
