Dynamite Adds Second Voltron Title

On the heels of the surprising success of Voltron #1, now we can get some Sven action with Voltron: Year One.

Voltron: Year One

The ink isn't dry on Dynamite's second issue of Voltron, but they've already announced a second title mining the property after the success and surprising quality of Voltron #1.  In April, we'll be getting Voltron: Year One, also written by Brandon Thomas, but featuring art from Craig Cermak.

Here's the synopsis blurb:

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.

 

More from Thomas on Commander Sven:  "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. 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?"

Check out these covers from Voltron: Year One #1, from Jonathan Lau and Admira Wijaya, respectively.
