BOOM!

To meet the overwhelming demand from fans, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 Second Printing Variant will hit stands on April 25, along with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Annual #1.
POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID unfolds in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers and include two special one-shots.
