A new Voltron Force is chosen... and just in time! A threat from ages past has returned, and only Voltron can stand against it. But the new crew of the mighty robot may be doomed before they even get started!
Voltron: From the Ashes #3 is a good release that for fans of the old show will no doubt bring a smile to their face. A potent finish and a promising future leaves this heading in the right direction as the next part of the arcstands ready for action. Read Full Review
In some ways this series is reminding me very much of my frustrations with the actual anime series, which in turn causes me to not be quite so critical of it. Voltron was never high end, deep or weighty with what it did. This book is trying to move it forward while keeping one foot too firmly placed in the past and there's a disconnect there. That we're three issues in, halfway through the book, and we haven't gotten the Voltron moving in present day is problematic. Particularly as the flashback side just isn't engaging. I'm certainly not trying to rewrite the book, but it's taking some really decompressed approaches to getting to where it needs to be, which in turn will make it a bit anticlimactic as it has an almost theatrical structure to it. Which it really shouldn't do. Read Full Review
Voltron: From the Ashes #3 is a very rough transitional issue where the conflict that has been building up has finally arrived even though no action has been taken against this foe yet. There are a number of plot holes and some poor dialogue. Bunn's characterization of Jayce and his team is decent, but not enough to make this book worth purchasing. Blacky Shepherd's panels are improved from the previous issue with easily discernible battle sequences and some strong emotional scenes with Jayce and his team. Read Full Review
