After the revelations from last month’s release, does the series quality continue to rise? Read on to find out.
The official description from Dynamite:
After last issue’s shocking conclusion, everything has changed. Planet Doom is no more and one of the galaxy’s most wanted terrorists has returned with an offer to disarm his forces and make peace at long last. But can Earth and the Galaxy Alliance put their trust in this man—and given the economic and societal turmoil raging across the galaxy, can they even afford not to? Keith and the Voltron Force must survive a terrifying new adversary, whose only mission is to pervert and distort everything Voltron stands for, to learn the truth before it’s too late. “Ten Lions” are here, and nothing will ever be the same…
A solid script with some uneven art manages to reveal another excellent entry for the latest iteration of Voltron. Gone is the cornball nature of the old cartoon and in its place is a mature science fiction story that revels in its subtle narrative shifts while still maintaining what worked from the original show.
Brandon Thomas does a really good job following up last month’s provocative issue with another solid entry in the series. Whether it’s a member of the Lion Force or a supposedly reformed Lotor, the script does a really good job informing readers of their diverging interests while still making time to move the plot forward. From beginning to end, the dire situation our team is in, is full of surprises as alliances and motivations are tested in a bitter battle on the moon.
N. Steven Harris handles the art in this issue, and for the most part it’s an uneven result. The battle on the moon looks great with panel designs that are top-notch, but the human characters themselves seem a bit misshapen. Overall the work done here is serviceable but there are moments where some badly handled panels distract from the overall quality of the story.
Voltron #7 has a good script that’s plagued by some art issues, but if you can look beyond those hiccups then this comic book still earns a solid recommendation.
