Most 90s kids remember their mighty morphin superhero team saving the day from the likes of Lord Zedd, Baboo, Finster, and Master Vile. Now, Saban and BOOM! are bringing them back in comic book form.
Welcome back, Black, Red, Blue, Green, Yellow and Pink Ranger!
Each Ranger will get their very own single-page comic, which will be distributed at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. They will be written by Mairghread Scott and will feature the artwork of Daniel Bayliss.
Scott has previously worked on Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots, Beast Hunters and The Transformers: Windblade.
The comics will also feature pin-ups by Goñi Montes.
A few months ago, the now adult fans of the Power Rangers got a nitty-gritty reboot (or should we say, a "deboot") treat to their old heroes when a short film starring James Van Der Beek went viral, showing what might have happened to the Rangers had they grown up from their teenage fighting escapades. The Dark Power Rangers short was an online success, which introduced a new generation to the Rangers, albeit a bloodier and rated-R version of them.
The comic books, however, will more likely stick to the more family-friendly roots of the Power Rangers.
According to the series editor, Matt Gagnon, the six individual comic books will stitch together to form one cohesive story and will bring back some of the 90s heroic spirit of the TV series.
"We have big, big plans that will build on the core universe of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers ... We can't give too much away just yet, but the story we're kicking off with is vast in scope. Fans of BOOM! know we treat the existing properties we collaborate on with a focus on authenticity and quality. That's the same sensibility we're applying here," Gagnon said.
The Green Ranger comic will be revealed in an online exclusive on EW.com while the others will be made available at the San Diego Comic-Con at the BOOM! Studios Booth (#2229) on July 9 to 12.
