MightyMorphinPowerRangers-000-Intermix-Red-ad253BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0 gives the readers so much nostalgia. Though a little bit different from the live-action TV spectacle that we’ve always love and treasure, the comic book still gives us that feeling. The art of Hendry Prasetya polishes their looks and gave the Rangers a modernized look. Kyle Higgins, on the other hand, approached the story lines with depth. We guess that this time, the Rangers will rise from the past and there will be no stopping.

In the hands of Kyle Higgins and Henry Prasetya, BOOM! Studios hopes to bring these heroes a rebirth and a deserving place in the land of comic books.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers#0, is not bad for an introduction. This issue gives the reader an appetizer on what they will get if they will grab the next issue. Higgins, knowing how the Rangers worked together, carefully places the characters’ interaction like the way it was seen in the show. In this issue, we see that the Green Ranger is still in his adjustment period as part of the Power Rangers. Higgins writes the struggles and frustrations of Tommy without forgetting his dealings with his teammates, most especially with Jason. What is more recognizable in this issue is how Higgins intertwines the Rangers with their teenage problems and being Power Ranger. He never leaves that part out, which made the reading more interesting. It shows that Higgins clearly has an idea on the fan base of this franchise.

On the other hand, Prasetya’s art is maybe rigid, but it adds that Japanese sentai-like vibe that they are going for. Despite the Asian origin of the Power Rangers, the art gives you that recognizable and similar settings to it’s old TV series. Prasetya makes sure that every panel is solid and a bit nostalgic where you could picture your younger self playing with Power Ranger toys.

Might Morphin Power Rangers 00 01

First-timers might find this difficult when reading this comic, since identities and sides are already placed and there is already an established plot. Panels of Bulk and Skull  might be good for the loyal fans and the younger audience, but new readers might not find it relatable.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0 kicks ass especially if you are an old fan. It is promising and something refreshing coming from BOOM! Studios.

It’s DEFINITELY morphin time!
