Voltron Force Volume 5: Dragon Dawn: 07/12/15
Dragon Dawn by Brian Smith is the fifth of this six part graphic novel series. The new team is nearly trained and the original team is getting ready to settle into their mentorship roles. Meanwhile Lotor has found a new way to invade — by disrupting communications through the use of space dragon eggs!
This plot reminds me most of the Hero's Duty bug infestation in Sugar Rush that ends up being the climax of Wreck It Ralph. Here, though, the new Force members are on top of things — though accidentally.
For me though, the most interesting part was seeing the old Force taking responsibly for their charges. Apparently Lance is quite the task master, being very strict. He was the prankster and now he's making sure the new team doesn't fall for the same temptations that he did.
The other interesting thing of note is that Lotor isn't as in control of things as he thinks he is. He is in more danger than he's ever put the Voltron Force. In fact it's the unrest among the Drules that makes me wish there was a second series. I know the series that spawned the graphic novels is ended but there's so much potential for story telling here!
