The Galra have long held a number of slave planets in their grasp, and the Paladins have devised a plan to free them. Cutting off the resources of closely guarded planets that are mined for many of the Galra’s construction materials is the first step toward bringing down the Galra. But the key to successfully finding a way in is to break the bond of the mysterious force that holds these planets together.

(Issue/Cost:) Vol. 3 No. 1 – $15.00

Lion Forge is known for their diversity. With assembling an array of talent for signings to a panel on representation, the publisher has that in full display during NYCC.
