It’s Morphin Time! The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers make their BOOM! Studios comic debut in this kick-off #0 issue that sets the stage for the rest of the series. After escaping Rita Repulsa‘s mind control, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, joins up with the rest of the Power Rangers to combat her never-ending evil plans. Any semblance of a normal life is gone for Tommy now, but with his newfound family there lies hope for a brighter path. Includes the short story from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics!
Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, is off to his first day of school after breaking free of Rita Repulsa‘s mind control and as a member of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. But something is off. No matter what Tommy does he can’t seem to get Rita Repulsa out of his head. His every interaction is commented on by Rita Repulsa‘s voice causing him to pause and doubt himself.
The essence of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is captured wonderfully here by Kyle Higgins and the artwork by Hendry Praseta is stunning while also being modern. The Power Rangers are drawn in modern clothing as opposed to throwing it back to the early 1990’s. While not much happens overall you get the feeling that this issue is setting up what comes next. This is a great starting point for new readers and for the new series. On top of that you can get some beautiful covers that look great on a display shelf or on your wall.
