In 1984, Voltron: Defender of the Universe hit the television airwaves, and the world of giant robots has never been the same. Here, collected for the first time ever, is a rare look at the history of the show and the pop culture phenomenon that followed, plus an in-depth look at the lore and legend of Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
Thirty years ago, Voltron: Defender of the Universe hit the airwaves, and the world of pop culture hasn't been the same. Now, VOLTRON: FROM DAYS OF LONG AGO chronicles the story of VOLTRON and its cultural relevance, taking a detailed look at the story behind the show and the many related toy releases, the mythology of both Lion Force and Vehicle Voltron (with a nod to Albegas), and concludes the exciting Voltron Force saga. This new book is truly for fans, by fans: authored by Brian Smith, writer on Perfect Square's VOLTRON FORCE series of original graphic novels, Marc Morrell, co-host of the popular "Let's Voltron!" podcast, and Joshua Bernard, founder of CollectionDX; with a comic written by Smith and illustrated by Jacob Chabot, illustrator of the VOLTRON FORCE series; and a foreward by Jeremy Corray.
“To celebrate VOLTRON's 30th, we wanted to do something really special,” says Traci Todd, Senior Editor. “There are so many fans out there, and we wanted to both honor their devotion and invite them to be part of this project. The book starts almost like a yearbook of fan memories and then dives right in with archival images, celebrity interviews, and an examination of the Voltron mythology that will blow your mind. Everyone who worked on this book is a huge Voltron fan. And we all hope you love Voltron: From Days of Long Ago as much as we love bringing it to you!”
