From Boom Studios comes the stunning 6th issue of the new Mighty Morphin team. This fresh take on the classic 90s team is fun, vibrant and refreshing to read! With a standard three-act 28 page comic splitting the action between 10,000 years ago, outside the barrier and then finally inside!
Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 28 continuous years on the air. Making it one of the longest-running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the franchise celebrates its 28th season on stations.
Still reeling from the revelation of the New Green Ranger’s true identity, the New Mighty Morphin team must join with former Ranger Grace Sterling to save Angel Grove from a new threat tied to Zordon’s surprising past. But nothing could prepare the Rangers for the two people who stand in their way…
Parrott has taken lots of the well known and beloved elements of the MMPR franchise and putting his own spin on it. I’m loving the Zordon flashbacks from 10,000 years ago when he was the chief guardian and his ongoing tension with Zartus. This tension is mirrored in the current team after the problems with Matt and Grace are leading to trust issues.
Artist Marco Renna and colourist Walter Baiamonte are having fun in this issue with bold colours and a mix of full panel pages kept to ramp excitement and classic smaller 6-9 panel setups for conversations. Bright recognisable art will delight everyone from older readers from the 90s era up to new kids that have been following on TV and the past five issues!
MIGHTY MORPHIN 6 features main cover art by acclaimed illustrator InHyuk Lee (Seven Secrets), and variant covers by Eleonora Carlini (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Peach Momoko (Something is Killing the Children).
I would not start the issue of have not caught up as we are in the middle of multiple plot points at this stage. If all the previous are sold out buy the digital versions to give yourself a chance to get up to speed!
Print copies of MIGHTY MORPHIN #6 are scheduled to be available on April 14 2021. From local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
