Let’s face it, Netflix’s already-forgiving standards and the required turnaround of animation already gave Voltron: Legendary Defender a strong shot at returning the five lions for Season 2, but there’s better news yet. Season 2 will air as early as later this year, so get ready to form up once again!
Voltron, everyone’s favorite anime franchise about a group of lion themed robots that get together to form an even bigger lion themed robot, is undergoing quite the renaissance this year. The animated revival Voltron: Legendary Defender has been quite the hit as a Netflix original series, and that series is being spun off into a comic by Lion Forge set to debut later this month.
The miniseries, also titled Voltron: Legendary Defender, is written by show Tim Hedrick (the animated series’ head writer) and Mitch Iverson (also a writer on the show) and illustrated by Digital Art Chefs, the show’s development studio. Ahead of its release, Lion Forge has provided us with a preview of Voltron: Legendary Defender #1, as well as an exclusive look at Jon Chad’s limited edition San Diego Comic Con variant cover.

The entire first (hopefully, of many) season is available for streaming now, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you should fix that, because it’s fantastic!
