BOOM! Studios have just announced details of a brand new POWER RANGERS series from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Francesco Mortarino. The series, which will be launched in conjunction with a brand new Mighty Morphin series, will help to usher in the era of UNLIMITED POWER, where only Lord Drakkon himself can save the ‘Rangers.
Here’s the official blurb:
POWER RANGERS #1 reveals a new cosmic threat that only the original Power Rangers, now known as the Omega Rangers – Jason, Trini and Zack – can hope to defeat! But their secret weapon is… the villainous Lord Drakkon?! Zordon forbids the Omega Rangers from contacting Drakkon, so if they want to save the universe then they’ll have to go rogue – and go up against their Mighty Morphin allies.
Speaking about the series, Parrott said “We’ve spent several years building out the Power Rangers comic book universe and continuing the adventures of the Omega Rangers gives us a chance to fully explore it beyond the confines of the show.”
He continued, adding “Not only can we add more heroes and villains but we can also bring in elements from future seasons viewed through the lens of familiar characters. It’s very exciting to explore new corners of the Power Rangers universe that fans have always imagined – and also never expected!”
Mortatino added his own thoughts, saing “A year and a half ago, I helped illustrate Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #33, and now I’m drawing the first issue of the new POWER RANGERS series! I’m very proud to be a part of this new era with Ryan and BOOM! Studios. I know that many readers are waiting to see where the new team’s adventures will take them. As a fan myself, I can’t wait to show everyone exactly what I’ve been working on. It’ll blow your minds!”
Print copies of POWER RANGERS #1 are scheduled to be available in November 2020 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the one nearest to you).
