BOOM! Studios has unveiled their final Road to San Diego announcement, and it’s all about the Power Rangers. Specifically, the Shattered Grid super-mega-crossover event that will have shook the Power Rangers Universe to its core (we assume), leaving nothing ever the same again (probably). Even more specifically, it’s about the ways in which this epic mega-event will be collected next year, starting with four trade paperback volumes:
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Vol.7 Softcover (On-Sale March 2019) – collecting Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25-28
- Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers Vol.3 Softcover (On-Sale April 2019) – collecting Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers #9-12
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Vol.8 Softcover (On-Sale May 2019) – collecting Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #29-30, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid #1
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Lost Chronicles Vol.2 Softcover (On-Sale June 2019) – collecting Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Annual #1, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: 25th Anniversary Special #1
But as if that weren’t enough, it’ll also be collected again, twice, in the following months:
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid Softcover (On-Sale August 2019) – collecting Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25-30, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Free Comic Book Day Special, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid #1
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid Deluxe Edition Hardcover (On-Sale November 2019) – collecting Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #24-30, Go Go Power Rangers #9-12, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Annual #1, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Free Comic Book Day Special, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid #1. This collection will also include an exclusive original never-before-seen story set in the Shattered Grid event, and more extras including a full cover gallery.
Just to prove they aren’t screwing around, as if it weren’t already obvious, BOOM! Studios broke out a Vice President, Bryce Carlson, to deliver the obligatory press release quote:
This is one of the biggest stories in BOOM! Studios history and we want to ensure every reader can experience POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID in their preferred format. We want readers and retailers to know exactly what we have planned for the collections of this epic event. Like any perennial story, fans should have the opportunity to choose the format that suits them and their shelf best, whether it’s the standard collection or our crazy deluxe hardcover collection with all the bells and whistles.
The first one hits stores in March!
In the first comic book event in the Power Rangers brand’s 25 year history, Lord Drakkon—a twisted alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver (AKA the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger)—and his newly reformed deadly army cross dimensions in order to execute on a plan that threatens the very existence of every Power Ranger ever. For the first time in comic book history, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers join forces with some of the most popular Power Rangers teams in the franchise to face the threat.
