Between Nickelodeon's new Voltron Force
animated series and Netflix streaming
much of the original show, fans are feasting on some Robeast-slaying action of late. Dynamite Entertainment's been waiting to join the party for awhile
, but has finally debuted four pieces of promo art from December's Voltron
#1, the first issue of an ongoing series by writer Brandom Thomas and an unannounced interior artist featuring covers from artists including Alex Ross. The series will apparently play in the Voltron: Defender of the Universe
animated continuity, although specific story details aren't yet available.
From Dynamite's official press release:
"Voltron is one of the most well-known cartoons of all-time," says Dynamite President Nick Barrucci. "Classic Media and World Events Productions are working with a wide-range of licensing partners to ensure Voltron's success. With the upcoming cartoon and a feature film in the works, now is the perfect time to launch a Voltron comic book for a new era, which will feature amazing Alex Ross covers! Our acquisition of this incredible brand is another step in Dynamite's exciting growth and builds on the ongoing success of our line."
"I grew up loving the big robots from Japan," says legendary artist Alex Ross. "And Voltron is one of the coolest-looking of them!"
