Writer Paul Allor, artist Giuseppe Cafaro, and colorist Marcelo Costa will create Saban’s Power Rangers: The Psycho Path for October release. The press release provides more details:
BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), announced today an original graphic novel starring fan favorite characters, Karone, Andros, and the iconic Psycho Rangers in SABAN’S POWER RANGERS: THE PSYCHO PATH from writer Paul Allor (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Clue), fan-favorite artist of Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon Giuseppe Cafaro, and colorist Marcelo Costa, available in stores October 2019.
In SABAN’S POWER RANGERS: THE PSYCHO PATH, the struggle between good and evil goes galactic as secret origins are revealed and lives are changed forever in this epic original graphic novel story that delves deep into the origins and motivations of the ultimate adversaries of the Power Rangers, the Psycho Rangers! They’re are faster, stronger, and smarter…but evil. Created by Karone when she was still the evil Astronema, the Psycho Rangers were programmed with overwhelming hate for all things Power Rangers. They were defeated at great personal cost by the Power Rangers, but now someone has brought them back and they are more murderous than ever before.
Who brought these monstrous, twisted Rangers back, and why? And can Karone, the former Lost Galaxy Pink Ranger, and her brother Andros, the Red In Space Ranger, stop the Psychos before they bring the universe to its knees?
SABAN’S POWER RANGERS: THE PSYCHO PATH features a cover by acclaimed artist Diego Galindo (Kino, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).
Here’s what Allor had to say about the project:
I can not wait for SABAN’S POWER RANGERS: THE PSYCHO PATH to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting populace. The entire team has worked together to create a compelling and deliciously twisted journey that will surprise and delight Power Rangers fans all along the way. This book is not what you think it’s going to be. And I suspect you’ll love what it is.
And Cafaro said:
Being a part of the Power Rangers family is such a huge honor. I felt the weight of that honor in Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon, and I can feel it now. I think the Psycho Rangers universe is so powerful and dark; it has been very fun to work on!
And last but not least, BOOM! Senior Editor Dafna Pleban added:
Everything turns upside down as Karone and Andros are forced to deal with the rise of the Psycho Rangers, causing Karone to struggle with her identity as the dark and power-hungry Astronema and pulling Andros along for the ride as he tries to help his sister. Things get dark and dire in space, giving fans a chance to glimpse into the shadows behind the mysterious rebirth of these twisted versions of the original mighty heroes.
Saban’s Power Rangers: The Psycho Path is set to hit comic stores on October 9th and bookstores on October 15th.
