There is some good news for Voltron fans everywhere! Like a global pandemic, re-launch fever is sweeping the land and Voltron has not escaped its reach. Some remakes will be good, and others will take your childhood memories and poop all over them like a Vietnamese pungi-stick. We just learned that everyone’s favorite transforming-robot-lions will have their very own San Diego Comic Con panel hosted by none other than Carrie Keagan.
I remember writing a multi-part story in second grade about my magical robot wristwatch. The story was so strange and filled with raw imagination that my mother kept it for ages. Heck, it may still be in an envelope someplace in the bottom of a dresser. Kids have an amazing way of telling stories, and their unfiltered imaginations are the fuel that makes Geek and Sundry’s Written by a Kid so incredible. Actual stories written by actual kids are brought to life visually for our enjoyment. The first episode, entitled “Scary Smash”, stars none other than Mr. Joss Whedon, and contains a cyclops monster, Dave Foley, a S.Q.U.A.T. team leader named Gerald, and a lot of creativity. I honestly cannot wait to see what comes next.
