The dust has barely settled from the Power Rangers Shattered Grid super-mega-crossover event, but Mighty Morphin Power Rangers continues to shatter sales expectations. According to a press release from explosive publisher BOOM! Studios, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #31, kicking off a post-Shattered-Grid storyline called Beyond the Grid, as well as a new era under the creative team of Marguerite Bennett and Simone di Meo, has sold out and will go back for a second printing.
Even more impressive, BOOM! managed to get better-than-expected sales on a comic without rebooting it with a new number one issue, defying industry wisdom.
The second printing will hit stores on November 21st with a new cover by Jamal Campbell featuring the Solar Ranger, a Power Ranger whose powers are enhanced by tax credits from the government.
BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc., announced today that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #31, kicking off the highly-anticipated Power Rangers: Beyond The Grid epic from the new series creative team of award-winning writer Marguerite Bennett (Animosity) and artist Simone di Meo (Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor), has sold out at the distributor level.

After the stunning conclusion to the hit comic book event Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, an all-star team of Power Rangers are drawn together from across time and space to combat a never-before-seen evil. As they fight to prove to themselves and each other that they have what it takes to survive in a dangerous new environment, these iconic Power Rangers must defeat the onslaught of an unfamiliar, terrifying new villain.
This new team of Rangers includes The Ranger Slayer, an alternate universe version of Kimberly Hart, the original Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger (who recently debuted in the pages of Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers); Cameron Watanabe, the Green Ranger from Power Rangers Ninja Storm; Tanya Sloan, the Yellow Ranger from Power Rangers Zeo; Andros, the Red Ranger from Power Rangers in Space; Mike Corbett, Magna Defender from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy; and the mysterious Dark Ranger, who is revealed to be Heckyl, from Power Rangers Dino Charge.
