A comiXologist Recommends (the return of a childhood favorite)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0

After 22 years since it first aired, it’s Morphin Time!  The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are BACK in this issue #0 of the new series from BOOM! Studios. Granted the new series doesn’t fully start till March, but this issue gives us a little taste of what we can expect. Issue #0 is made up of three stories, the main story is about the Green Ranger, there is the on-going story of Bulk and Skull’s mischief, and last the tale is a straight Zord fighting. If you were a fan of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, you will dig this comic.  These are all new tales about our favorite teenagers with attitude.

The first story first story takes place after Tommy Oliver broke Rita Repulsa’s mind control, and his coping with what happened while joining the Rangers to fight against Rita. The story was written by Kyle Higgins (Batman Eternal (2014-2015) and C.O.W.L.) and it really embraces the feel of the TV show it is based on. I felt like I was reading an updated episode about our favorite Angel Grove heroes. The art is done by Hendry Prasetya, (Power Girl and Voodoo (2011-2012)) which captures the spirit and pacing of the show. It’s apparent in his art that he loved drawing the Rangers, monsters and Zords because they are amazingly rendered. The story to me is like binge-watching the show, I need to know what happens next, and I can’t wait for the next episode.

The two backup stories are really fun reads as well. The first is a Bulk and Skull story written Steve Orlando (Midnighter (2015-) and Undertow) and illustrated by Corin Howell (Bat-Mite (2015-) and Transformers: Windblade (2015-)). This little story follows the hi-jinx of Angel Grove’s own Laurel and Hardy, Bulk and Skull. Again, this story nails the tone and feel of the 90’s TV show, even when Bulk is mocking what someone had just said. The final story is written by Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade (2015-) and Marvel Universe Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite Comic) and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss (Jim Henson’s Storyteller and Translucid.) This story is nothing but fighting and ZORDS! Seriously, I could read a whole issue about Zords fighting bad guys.

Overall I have to say the whole issue was MORPHINOMINAL! If you were a fan of the TV show, I highly recommend checking this book out for a trip down Nostalgia Lane. Check out this new series when it starts up in March.

While teaching a Karate class at the Angel Grove Youth Center, Chris Zenyuch was transported to the far off place called New York City. While he was there, he was hired by comiXology to lead their book activation and file quality teams. In his spare time he likes to protect the world from alien invaders, but sadly Chris is still waiting for Rita Repulsa to make her monster’s grow, so he can show off his sweet Karate moves.
