[Book Review] Voltron Legendary Defender Vol. 2: Pilgrimage

Book review of Voltron Legendary Defender Vol. 2: Pilgrimage

Defender Vol. 2: Pilgrimage by Tim Hedrick, Mitch Iverson, and artists Jung Gwan & Rubine is another great installment of this series. It was such a fun read and I didn't want it to end!

When I first stumbled across Voltron: Legendary Defender, Volume 1, I was ecstatic! So of course I was thrilled when I saw that Volume 2 was available.

Let's dive in!

Defender Vol. 2: Pilgrimage 
by Tim Hedrick, Mitch Iverson, and artists Jung Gwan & Rubine


Synopsis: 
The pilgrimage begins...

The DavDabHau are an alien race far from home and facing an uncertain future. For their survival they need to reach their sacred hunting grounds and establish a new life there. But the journey is dangerous, and they'll need help... from Voltron!


My thoughts:
This was another wonderful volume! We begin with a very dramatic introduction that jumps into a silly scene with the team. Shortly after, the team answers a distress call from the DavDabHau, a clan of hunters and shamans. From there it is non-stop action as the team tries to get the DavDabHau to their sacred lands.

As with the first volume, I absolutely loved the artwork! The colors in each panel were so perfect, whether it was a darker situation with lots of browns and blacks, or an intense space scene with lots of purples, pinks, and teals.

Of course the level of humor had me chuckling throughout. I just love the way that all the characters interact with one another.

This page was definitely my favorite. It was so heartfelt, but also hysterical!

My only slight complaint about this one was that a few parts just seemed rushed. There may have been a page limit or something, but I definitely would have preferred that a few scenes continued on rather than ending so abruptly. 


My favorite passage:
Get hungry, Hunk!- Lance
Copy that!- Hunk
But not too hungry!- Coran
I don't follow...- Hunk


My final thoughts: 
A must-read for any Voltron fan!


Thanks for reading!
