The Omega Rangers and Drakkon are on the run in space, but they must find new allies if they want to defeat the Empyreals. But that means trusting someone they’re not sure is friend or foe if they are to save the universe. And then… there’s Drakkon.
How much is the cost of life? How far will the Omega Rangers go to protect beings from the Empyreals? While this issue of Power Rangers starts off with a seemingly fun game, the rest of the issue has serious implications for the rest of the current arc which ties in nicely with the Mighty Morphin series.
The Omega Rangers are in a tough position in this story after the discovery of the Empyreals next targeted planet. When the Omega Rangers have two mentor-type characters telling them that saving this planet might be a waste of time, they carry on because doing nothing means the death of many people. What follows is the start of another mini-arc in the journey of the Omega Rangers. We get some much needed updates in the issue, including the answer to a question many fans have been asking for since the end of Necessary Evil.
Writer Ryan Parrott continues to bring in elements and storylines from as far back as the first issues of Go Go Power Rangers. After 5 years of stories, this is rewarding for long time readers without being cumbersome for newer readers. But I would highly recommend newer readers to go back and catch up for a deeper understanding. Artist Francesco Mortarino delivers with crowded cityscapes, varied alien species and detailed line work that is highlighted by the vibrant colors of Raúl Angulo.
With elements of the Mighty Morphin storyline crossing over into this issue, I feel it’s only a matter of time before we get either another crossover with the two teams, or a large scale event that will impact both series.
