Image's Voltron Team-Up
By Brian Jacks


In May of 2003, 1980s favorite Voltron: Defender of the Universe will make its way to comic book shops nationwide courtesy of Image Comics. But while Devil’s Due Studios is moving along with the first issue, Image has announced that the unlikely candidate of Dreamwave Productions has been chosen to handle the art for a twelve-page prequel to the first issue, written by series scribe, Dan Jolley.

The alliance may come as a surprise to many who believe the two fledgling companies to be rivals, but everyone involved acknowledges that their mutual love of the franchise made this one-off collaboration an easy fit.

“As an anime fan, VOLTRON has always been one of those franchises I couldn’t help but love,” remarked Dreamwave President and Transformers: Generation One artist Pat Lee. “It’s got it all: fantasy, monsters, space drama, and of course, the kick-ass robots!"

“The deal was the perfect opportunity to play in someone else’s sandbox,” explained Dreamwave CEO Adam Fortier. “It’s the perfect fit for Dreamwave and it’ll be a lot of fun. It’s something that we’re all looking forward to.”

“It was a long shot, but I’m glad I went for it," said Blaylock. "I’ve been reading Dreamwave’s Transformers series since day one and havegotten to know the Dreamwave crew from last year's conventions. It’ll be a blast to see them tackle our ‘big robot’ property.”

Blaylock continued: “We’re compared for being holders of two of the biggest '80s properties, and I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t a little friendly rivalry between us, but when it all comes down to it, we’re in this business to have fun and I can’t think of a collaboration cooler than this.”

Dreamwave has chosen penciler Mark Brooks to handle the art on the preview, which will feature inks by Clayton Brown and, of course, the famous Dreamwave coloring.

The Voltron #0 will be available for order through the Image Comics section of the March issue of Previews and will ship in May.
