If you’re not currently reading any of the Power Rangers comics as produced by Boom! Studios, then you are doing yourself a tremendous disservice. With writer Kyle Higgins taking the stage front and center in bringing the world of the Mighty Moprhin Power Rangers to the comic book page, a new world has been revealed. There is something for fans new and old and frankly, the writing is just darn impressive.
With everything from alternate timelines to evil future versions of themselves, Mighty Mophin Power Rangers is a book you ought to be reading. Boom! is also bringing the new Go Go Power Rangers comic the scene too, enabling you to get a greater Ranger fix!
While the San Diego Comic Con Power Rangers comic book panel might not have revealed much in the way of spoilers, it was still a lot of fun. As the panel began, Walter Jones, the original Black Ranger on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers suddenly appeared, jumping on stage and receiving tremendous applause; it was the highlight of the whole affair.
There were a fair number of people on the panel, but chief among them, aside from Walter Jones, were Kyle Higgins, artist Dan Mora, and Ryan Parrot, the writer for the new Go Go Power Rangers.
As Kyle Higgins recounted what he’d been working on for the last couple years of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, he mentioned the upcoming story arc, taking place on the moon in the 1960s, and teased the Psycho Rangers.
With relation to Go Go Power Rangers, Ryan Parrot explained how the comic starts off one day after Day of the Dumpster, the first MMPR episode. His book will explore how the teens balanced their high school life with their superhero career. Additionally, while the classic five Rangers was made up of Jason, Trini, Kimberly, Billy, and Zack, Parrot revealed there was a sixth member to the group of friends, one we’ll be seeing; essentially someone who was left behind.
The panel ended on a touching note, as the panelists explored the theme of friendship and teamwork in Power Rangers, going on to say how we’re better together as a team and that just because we all lead our individual lives, it doesn’t mean you have to live your life alone. The power of friendship!
