Voltron: From the Ashes does its character building material here and it's all well and good if not for the fact that I'm hard pressed to care about any of these characters. They're not presented badly or poorly, it's just that it still feels weird to do this leap forward and expand here when there's such a rich wealth of material to work with in the previous incarnation. At this stage the book still feels mostly about Jayce with the rest being his unwilling entourage that are trying to achieve their goals. We know bad stuff is coming, but there's a kind of laziness about the group because of the realities of the time that just makes it hard to really find them compelling or interesting.

Voltron: From the Ashes #2 is a disappointing second entry. Bunn attempts to build some team unity while introducing us to some of the characters, but it falls flat and doesn't flow very well at all. Blacky Shepherd's artwork doesn't improve the story with overlapping panels that make it difficult to follow the action. I recommend skipping this issue. Read Full Review
