DYNAMIC FORCES
(W) Tommy Yune (A) Elmer Damaso (CA) Tommy Yune
Part 1 of 5. Two of the greatest anime legends of all time are about to collide in one epic saga! The Lion Force team face the return of a mysterious ancient adversary that could jeopardize the very existence of Voltron itself. The repercussions threaten to reach across the fabric of time and space, all the way to Earth. How will Roy Fokker and the Skull Squadron cope with such a new menace, especially with the Zentraedi looming over Macross Island? What opportunities will King Lotor pursue in a crisis like this?
