BOOM! Studios has released a preview of Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers: Back to School #1, an oversized oneshot written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Jim Towe, Derek Charm, Jordan Gibson, Xiao Tong Kong, and Ilaria Catalani. In the comic, the Power Rangers get a “Spring Break,” but rather than imbibing large amounts of alcohol and getting arrested in Mexico, instead, each Power Ranger will take a separate vacation and “these teenagers with attitude discover that being a hero doesn’t alway mean having to morph.”And perhaps, on the journey, they’ll find answers to the most important question of all: why is a spring break themed comic hitting stores in September?
That’s a topic BOOM! Senior Editor Dafna Pleban didn’t address in the press release:
This is your first chance to see the heart, joy and surprises that Marguerite Bennett will bring to the world of Power Rangers in September before she takes the reins of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Along with an incredible team of artists, we’re going to get to see the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers dealing with one of their greatest challenges yet – taking a break from saving the world.
Hitting stores on September 19th, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers: Back to School #1 will feature covers by Dan Mora, Gurihiru, and Jonboy Meyers. Check out the preview below.
