MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS comic book Premiers this January 2016

powerrangers00eIf you were a kid in the early ’90s, chances are Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series had a significant impact on your childhood. The iconic superhero franchise is a multi-generational, globally recognized pop-culture phenomenon and has seen continued success for more than 22 years. This coming January, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is partnering with Saban Brands to bring the fun and adventure of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers team to modern day with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0, written by Kyle Higgins (Batman Eternal, Nightwing) and illustrated by Hendry Prasetya (Green Lantern, Power Girl).

Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers make their BOOM! Studios comic debut in this kick-off #0 issue, which sets the stage for the rest of the series. After escaping Rita Repulsa’s mind control, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, joins the rest of the Power Rangers to combat her never-ending evil plans. Any semblance of a normal life is now gone for Tommy, but with his newfound family there lies hope for a brighter path. This issue also includes the short story from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics by Mairghread Scott (Toil and Trouble, Transformers: Windblade) and Daniel Bayliss (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons), and the first installment of a Bulk and Skull-centric adventure by Steve Orlando (Midnighter) and Corin Howell (Ben 10).
