BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands Unveil New Art
From Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25
LOS ANGELES, CA (February 15, 2018) – BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands revealed today new covers and a first look at interior art from MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25, the official beginning of the historic POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID comic book event. Arriving in comics shops worldwide on March 28th, this issue begins the first comic book event in the twenty-five-year history of the global franchise as writer Kyle Higgins and artist Daniele Di Nicuolo deliver a story so shocking that the issue will be sealed in a black polybag to prevent spoilers!
Now, fans can get their first look as Lord Drakkon—a twisted alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver (the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger)—and his newly reformed deadly army cross dimensions in order to execute on a plan that threatens the very existence of every Power Ranger ever. For the first time in comic book history, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers join forces with many iconic Power Rangers teams to face the threat.
“SHATTERED GRID is the biggest, most impactful Power Rangers story I’ve ever written,” said Kyle Higgins. “It’s an honor to be a part of the 25 year legacy of Power Rangers. Everyone working on this event has been floored by the response from fans and this first look is just a taste of the surprises that await them. Trust me, you’re not going to want to have the ending of this issue spoiled for you.”
POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID will unfold in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers and include three special one-shots.
“This is the comic that no Power Rangers fan should miss – because it has the ending that everyone’s gonna be talking about!” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Everything in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers has been leading to SHATTERED GRID – and it’s only going to get bigger from here!”
“Developing the Power Rangers: Shattered Grid event with the writers and BOOM! Studios has been an incredible journey and we believe the fans are in for some shocking surprises and morphinominal storytelling. It’s definitely an event that fans will not want to miss!” said Brian Casentini, Executive Producer, Power Rangers Franchise.
Polybagged editions of MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25 will be shipped with six (6) main covers illustrated by Goñi Montes, randomly assorted in equal quantities, featuring Drakkon holding one of the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger helmets. Montes helped launch the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series from BOOM! Studios with a series of iconic covers on issue #0. A special chase variant by Montes will also be available and mixed in randomly within the polybagged editions. This landmark issue will also feature variants (shipping without polybags) by superstar artist Humberto Ramos (Amazing Spider-Man), Jordan Gibson (Howard the Duck), and a stunning wraparound cover featuring every Power Ranger ever by Scott Koblish (Deadpool).
