Voltron: Defender Of The Universe: Revelations
Mike Norton, Mark Brooks, Clint Hilinski
Devil’s Due
$11.95 US (Paperback)
*** ½ (out of five)

There’s a temptation to write of Voltron as just another 80s product licensed out and made into a comic, but this book is really quite solid.
Devil’s Due’s re-interpretation of the origin of the Voltron force, the four men and one woman who team up to pilot the five giant robotic lions which become the robot warrior, is well told. It’s familiar, yet fresh and gives the reader an entertaining ride that leaves you wondering what’s to come.
The pseudo-manga style of artists Mike Norton, Mark Brooks and Clint Hilinski suits the material perfectly and doesn’t come off as too childish or cartoony as some anime-interpreted books can be.
For those who remember weekday afternoons on the couch watching Voltron kick some robeast butt and new readers alike, this book is a sweet little blast from the past.
