THE MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS AND THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME!
The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver – AKA The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger – but soon discover he’s joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan!
As the Rangers are sent reeling by this betrayal, they’re confronted by another (fr)enemy – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Can these heroes find a way to work together to defeat the bad guys and save the world from total destruction?!
Written by Ryan Parrott (Power Rangers: Necessary Evil) and illustrated by Simone di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Venom Annual), the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fight – and maybe team up with – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the first time in this over-sized issue includes 30 pages of story content!
“When the MMPR/TMNT crossover was announced, I was excited for all of the possibilities that could come from a team up like this. Months after the initial announcement, the first issue has finally arrived. And what a fantastic first issue it is!
First, if you aren’t caught up on Go Go Power Rangers or Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, don’t worry. This is a standalone miniseries not tied into the ongoing series. Think of it as taking place during the first season of the show.
Second, if you’re not a big Turtles fan… don’t worry. With the first few pages you know the personalities and dynamics of both teams. The parallels of both teams fighting their respective enemy grunts is the perfect framing device for introductions. Writer Ryan Parrott brilliantly injects the signature humor and tone for both teams. Every character has their own unique voice and really shows how alike both teams are at their core.
Artist Simone Di Meo returns to Power Rangers comics following the uneven run in Beyond the Grid. For this issue, the art is very dramatic and fast paced. The action scenes have weight to them… you feel every blow. In my opinion one of the most gorgeous panels was the first morph of Tommy into the Green Ranger.
With plenty of self referential in-jokes and amazing action sequences, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue #1 is highly recommended for fans of either franchise.”
