Defender of the Universe: The Best Voltron Fan Art Ever!


The galaxy is in peril from the forces of the evil Zarkon, and there’s only one thing to do: form Voltron. And it looks like the galaxy is in luck, because Netflix and Dreamworks Animation have resurrected the big ‘bot in a new series Voltron: Legendary Defender. 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!

In celebration of Voltron’s triumphant return, we’ve compiled a gallery of some of the best fan artwork featuring the big guy and Team Voltron. We even snuck a few Vehicle Voltron pics in there (because there’s no way Vehicle Voltron is ever going to get its own gallery).

Lion Forge Announces Two ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Comics, Promising Stories ‘Too Outlandish’ For Netflix

Voltron: Legendary Defender, Lion Forge

There are a lot of reasons to be excited about the upcoming Voltron: Legendary Defender show that DreamWorks is producing for Netflix. There's the nostalgia factor, of course, but there's also the fact that the showrunners, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, are two of the people who brought us The Legend of Korra. But more than that, though, there's the very basic idea in play here. After all, Voltron is still the story of five robot lions that become a giant robot that has robot lions for hands and feet.

That, friends and neighbors, is a pretty weird premise, so if someone tells you that they're about to show you a story that was "too outlandish" for a series where that is the starting point, they're setting the bar pretty high. And that's exactly what Lion Forge is doing with the announcement of a five-issue series in continuity with the show, set to make its debut in July.
