The Omega Rangers return to a Safehaven, but all is not well with the new arrivals. After a confrontation in the streets, can Zack help bring peace… or will a friend’s need for revenge against the Hartunians be too much for one Ranger?
After a narrow escape from one of the Empyreals’ attack on Hartunia last issue the Omega Rangers return to Safe Haven, but how safe is it really?
I really enjoyed reading this issue. After months of galactic searching, the answers are starting to hit closer to the Omega Ranger’s home. It really feels like all of the pieces are falling into place. When dealing with a grand mythology of the Morphin Masters and Empyreals, Ryan Parrott does an incredible job balancing the side stories for all of the Rangers in this issue.
I think the standout is Zack’s story. Zack is put into a very tense situation that forces him to confront his decision from the previous issue head on. Zack’s continuous growth in this series is great to see, coming a long way from self describing himself as the jokester in Necessary Evil. That’s not to say the other Ranger’s don’t get a strong focus, because they do in spades. Jason is left with a decision he will need to address soon and Trini fully taps into her powerful potential.
Aside from artist Francesco Mortarino’s usual stunning art mixing action and character emotion, Moisés Hidalgo from the end run of the MMPR comic returns for a few guest pages. As seen in the preview below, this is a mini side story that sets up the focus for upcoming Issue 10’s Yale focused issue. I have always loved Hidalgo’s storybook look and this is no different. The end of the issue is particularly haunting and drawn beautifully with no dialogue needed.
This issue is highly recommended.
