Now, with the help of three new recruits, Voltron rises again, to defend the universe once more!

Meet the Creators!
Writer Brian Smith and artist Jacob Chabot give us the inside scoop about working on Voltron Force: Shelter from the Storm
Tell us about your relationship with Voltron. What does it mean to be part of such a classic franchise?
I'm a lifelong fan. It was the cartoon I'd wake up early to watch before school! The opportunity to contribute to Voltron's legacy is nothing short of a dream come true.
Jacob Chabot: Voltron
was the hurry-home-after-school-to-watch-it-show for me when I was in second or third grade, and during that time, it was my jam. I put a lot of miles on my old die-cast Voltron
and even had a set of Voltron sheets. Once, the local station that aired Voltron
had an art contest and they would show the winners after the credits. I spent a long time laboring over a drawing of Pidge that I sent in. Unfortunately, I don't think it ever made it on the air. So, getting the opportunity to draw Pidge for real after all these years is a childhood dream come true.
