It’s The New Mighty Morphin Team versus…The New Green Ranger! But whoever’s left standing will have to deal with Lord Zedd’s shocking machinations. And his even more surprising ally.
This month, the mysteries deepen as the Power Rangers enter the shield surrounding Angel Grove and discover what Lord Zedd has done to the city. From the preview pages, it’s definitely a strange turn of events. This almost feels like a twist on ‘Green with Evil’, but if the Green Ranger wasn’t evil… but had a different viewpoint.
As always with our spoiler free reviews we won’t give away what happens throughout the story, but it wasn’t as shocking as the solicitation would have you believe. Avid readers can certainly guess who is partnering up with Zedd, and I am more curious how far this character will go to ‘protect’ people. Is this all part of a master plan or an opportunistic power move?
Lord Zedd isn’t the only one to gain an ally this week, with Zordon getting some additional help himself. With some much needed intel, the stories are once again connecting to the sister book, Power Rangers. A war is brewing up and I wonder if we are going to get another large team up event at some point in the future.
Writer Ryan Parrott continues to deliver with solid dialogue and some snappy puns. Artist Marco Renna really pushes himself this issue with detailed city shots of Angel Grove, solid action sequences and unique perspectives on panels that give a sense of scale later in the issue.
I’m ready for the next one!
