VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER Returns to Comics This Fall (Exclusive)

Earlier this month, the extremely shortened third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender premiered on Netflix, along with word that the fourth season is coming on October 13th. But that’s not the only good news for fans of the revived series. We here at Nerdist are thrilled to exclusively announce that Lion Forge Press has a new Voltron: Legendary Defender comic book series launching this fall from two of the series’ writers.

Tim Hedrick and Mitch Iverson will co-write the new Voltron: Legendary Defender comic, which will be drawn by Jung Gwan Yoo and Rubine. It’s not currently clear when the comic will take place within the timeline of the show, but the new series will be released bi-weekly to comic stores. And that means the opening two-part tale, “The Pilgrimage,” will have both installments out in the month of October.

Lion Forge has also passed along a brief description of the first issue, which throws the spotlight on Hunk:

“Voltron responds to a distress call, and discovers a group of alien settlers on a mining planet under attack by Galra. While Voltron escorts the convoy of rescued settlers to their new home, Hunk finds himself the center of attention and our team encounters the first challenge: a horrifying monster that requires an unusual solution.”

Additionally, we are exclusively debuting several covers from the first five issues of the series, which you can see in our gallery below.
