One of them is intending to leave the unit permanently for a much different life. One of them is receiving the opportunity of a lifetime, even though they might not be ready. One of them is committed to saving everything there is. And one, well one of them is carrying a secret that ensures they’ll never again be welcome amongst their ranks. One door closes and three more open in “31 Days,” as the Galaxy Alliance decides just how many more Voltrons are truly necessary to defend the universe...

the first few issues of the shadow were really good, but then it gotten kind of boring, so i dropped it.

Those Shadow covers are beautiful as usual. There will come the day when I will actually pick it up and start reading... one day!

The bionic man is looking pretty awesome right here. Even if he has a terminator thing going on with his face. Also like the artwork for Voltron. I might have to check it out.

I honestly that thought was The Ghost I saw on the cover of that issue of Shadow. Nice that Roberson is writing, but I'm still partial to the first arc myself.

Anyone who complained about Power Girl's costume just needs to look at what Peter Cannon;s friend Aida wears.

In regards to Voltron & Sven. It looks like they are taking the Go-Lion version were he is killed. I always felt that Voltron should not only kept him alive, but use him as a reserve member to take the place of the other pilots when one is captured or just unavailable. I mean really, why would there not be a back-up pilot for every mech or Zord? That make just aas much sense as "why do they only send one monster a week"? Or "why dont they just blow up their hose while they sleep?" Or "Why do the monsters just stand there while the heros do this long role-call & combo sequence?"

Also, gotta ask. Are those the Vehicle-tron & Gladiator-tron?

@Cobramorph: For one, I sincerely hope that you were referring to Power Rangers when you said Zord & not calling one of the lions a Zord. :) Seriously though, I always enjoyed Sven best out of all of the characters. He just seemed the most competent and talented pilot that they had.

As to why didn't the monsters attack during the Voltron-Forming sequence? Actually they handled that one towards the end of the original series (I don't remember the specific episode number). When the Robeast-of-the-Week attempted to attack Voltron mid-formation, it got electricuted big time. Basically showing that all the lightning around it wasn't just for show.
