NECESSARY EVIL CONTINUES! After a shocking betrayal, the Omega Rangers are forced to return to earth-and to reveal their identities to the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. But can either team of Power Rangers survive the truth?
The war has begun and the march to the endgame of this chapter of Power Rangers is in full swing. With the revelation of the identity of the Omega Rangers, tensions are at their boiling point on both sides. And it’s justified, what would you do if a group of your friends have lied to you about what they were up to for months? If you felt like a temporary replacement? If a secret you struggled to keep is now affecting your friendships? This dramatic tension has been building from the start of Necessary Evil and now the real test of the Rangers’ friendship begins.
Writer Ryan Parrott has done a fantastic job of balancing this tension with the action of this issue. There are plenty of great character moments between characters that haven’t been together in awhile. Trini particularly stands out in this issue, trying to keep the peace between her friends and the Stone Canyon trio.
As for the artwork, artist Daniele di Nicuolo continues to capture the emotions of all of the characters in spectacular fashion. One of the greatest panels is in the preview below with the morphing sequence. It always amazes me how different artists tackle morphing in different layouts, especially with the colors on opposite sides of the panel from colorist Walter Baiamonte.
We are nearing the end of this almost year long arc and it will be very interesting to see where things stand at the end.
