    Rhymes With Geek - Josh Reifler Dec 21, 2013

    This is a series made for fans of Robotech and Voltron and isn't trying to do much more than give these properties something to throw giant robots against. But hey, that's why we loved these characters in the first place! If you are a newcomer for either of these properties, there's hours of material you can peruse before picking up this book. Seriously just go online and type 'watch Robotech for free' and try not to get any viruses on your computer as the 1980"s comes flooding back in all it's glory. As far as delivering an enjoyable comic, Robotech/Voltron admirably lives up to the task. The story moves forward efficiently and performs it's main duties of 1) Setting up a reason for Voltron and Robotech's worlds to collide and 2) Putting giant robots on the page. Hopefully issue two will ramp up the action even further and give us more giant robot action. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Dec 24, 2013

    Tommy Yune offers up a simplistic script that knows exactly what it means to do. He doesn't ruin either property or attempt to update them, instead he embraces what they were with dialogue that speaks to their corny but classic heritage. It's through that window that I gained a tremendous amount of respect for the scribe, but some of the beginning interactions with the Voltron Force could have been a bit tighter. With that said, rest assured there's certainly enough here to catch your gaze. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Dec 24, 2013

    This is a mini-series that is truly for its fans and its fans only. It's a book that gets its characters and art style directly from the source material, and it doesn't really do much for new readers who may be interested this mini-series. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. There's a couple really cool moment in this issue, but overall, it was a bit of a letdown. I am a Voltron fan but don't know much about Robotech, so I really felt out in the cold here. Read Full Review
