In the far future, with the galaxy divided between interstellar superpowers on the brink of war, a desperate officer of the Earth-based Galactic Union sends five maverick pilots on a bizarre mission: bring back the legendary war machine called Voltron. Journeying to the distant planet Arus, Keith, Lance, Sven, Hunk and Pidge discover the first clue in the centuries old mystery - a clue in the shape of a huge mechanical lion.

  • The name of the crypt that was accidentally opened, Altarus, was partially taken from the GoLion series. The "Alt" part of Altarus was taken from the name "Altea", which was the name of Planet Arus in GoLion.

  • I own the original pencils of Pages 2, 6 and 16. Page 6 I received by accident -- I had initially ordered Page 16 from Devil's Due but they sent Page 6 by accident instead. They eventually sent me the correct page and allowed me to keep Page 6 as a way of apology for their mistake.

  • Alternate, unpublished versions of Pages 1 to 5 exist. The art is the same as the published versions but the colouring, lighting and shading is noticeably different, and some text boxes are positioned differently:
