Last June, BOOM! Studios revealed they had partnered with Saban Brands and would begin publishing “Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” comics. Now, at New York Comic Con, they announced Hendry Prasetya (“Power Girl”) will join writer Kyle Higgins (“Batman Eternal,” “Nightwing”) on the #0 issue, which is scheduled for a January release. “Midnighter” scribe Steve Orlando will also pen a Bulk and Skull back-up story for the issue; an artist for this tale has not yet been announced.
While there have been many iterations of the “Power Rangers” franchise since it’s debut in 1993, BOOM! has specified that their series will feature the heroes as depicted in the first season of the popular show.
“We have big, big plans that will build on the core universe of ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,'” BOOM! Studios editor-in-chief Matt Gagnon said previously in a statement. “We can’t give too much away just yet, but the story we’re kicking off with is vast in scope.”
One of the most popular kids’ franchises of its time, the original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” show ran from 1993 to 1995, spawning a film and numerous sequel series.
