As tensions rise between the OMEGA RANGERS and the MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS over the return of <SPOILER>, Kimberly takes it upon herself to interrogate their new prisoner. Meanwhile, a team of Rangers on a crucial intergalactic mission come face to face with the herald of a new threat heading straight for Earth!
Not one, but two issues of the main comic this month? I am not complaining. After Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Issue 51 and Ranger Slayer Issue 1, BOOM! Studios has bounced back this month after delays from the pandemic.
Last month, we called this the “Aftermath” arc, but it turns out issues 51-55 will all be individually titled. That’s a nice change of pace as these last 5 issues set up the big comic split coming later this fall. In “Enemy of my Enemy”, we see the return of the Omega Rangers. The pacing of the issue is slowed down, as there is a split of focus between the Mighty Morphin team and the Omega Rangers. We even get more time with the Stone Canyon trio at Angel Grove High. I was even surprised by the return of a side character we have not seen in awhile! This slow down of pacing is what Ryan Parrott has mentioned before and it helps to take a breather after the universe ending events last arc.
Moisés Hidalgo continues to impress with his artwork. There’s a nice continuity between his style and Daniele Di Nicuolo’s art from Necessary Evil. The action is cranked up towards the end of this issue which sets the stakes for the remaining issues in this run. Highly recommended!
