Preview: Vol. 1 of Voltron Force
The blurb for vol. 1 of Voltron Force, the graphic novel series from Viz, tells you all you need to know:
The mighty robot Voltron is back! And three young cadets—Daniel, Larmina and Vince—are training to become defenders of the universe.
Seriously, teenagers and a giant robot—it’s gotta be good. Oh, there are villains too. The Voltron Force graphic novels are published by Viz as part of a new children’s graphic novel initiative; I talked to the editors about it for Publishers Weekly last week. (And don’t miss the book trailer!)
Enjoy the preview!
