This year’s New York Comic Con is a little more than two weeks away, and BOOM! Studios will be among the many comic book publishers in attendance — and, naturally, they’re not showing up empty handed.
Among the exclusive items on sale at BOOM! Studios’ booth (#1828) will be an exclusive variant of James Asmus and Carlos Magno‘s “Kong of Skull Island” #1, with a cover illustrated by Adam Hughes, the superstar comic book vet currently at the helm of Archie Comics’ relaunched “Betty and Veronica” series. The “Kong” exclusive will sell for $10.
BOOM! Studios’ biggest sales success of 2016 is “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” and the Los Angeles-based publisher will highlight the series at NYCC with an exclusive version of the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2016 Annual,” featuring a cover by Felipe Smith (the co-creator of Marvel’s current Ghost Rider, Robbie Reyes, who debuted this week in live-action on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”). Smith has illustrated a series of connecting “Power Rangers” variants as convention exclusives throughout the year — first at WonderCon, followed by Emerald City Comicon, then Comic-Con International in San Diego — and the NYCC cover completes the four-part image. The NYCC-exclusive edition of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2016 Annual” will sell for $20.
CBR has the first look at both covers, along with further details on the releases — plus a look at Smith’s fully connected “Power Rangers” image.
