You Need To Be Reading Power Rangers from BOOM Studios

first_img There is no better time to be a Power Ranger fan than now. Today sees the release of the Power Rangers movie, and you can check out Geek.com’s review from MovieBob here, and the comic series,  launched a little over a year ago from BOOM! Studios have been perfectly capturing the spirit of the show. Luckily, with the release of the movie, Comixology is having a sale on the main series, which you can find here. So in anticipation for the movie, we’re gonna take a look at the great series that BOOM! has been putting out over the past year.The main series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, by writer Kyle Higgins and primary artist Hendry Prasyeta, follows the team after Tommy, the Green Ranger, has recently joined their ranks. Jumping right into the lore of the Power Rangers, and their villains, the series quickly set out to establish its place in the Power Ranger continuity with the introduction of the Evil Ranger, known as Lord Drakkon, in its second arc. Higgins and Prasyeta do something special with the Power Rangers franchise here, blending the characters and mythology of the show with more western superhero comic ideals. I don’t want to talk about it too much out of fear that I’ll spoil something, but just know that if you’re a fan of the Power Rangers series, superhero comics, or just a fun story, Mighty Morphin’ is the book for you.Writer Kyle Higgins is underrated to me, always putting out stellar work. He worked a lot on the Batman family during the New 52 relaunch, and his Nightwing run never got the love that I felt it deserved. His recent works for Image, C.O.W.L. and Hadrian’s Wall, showed that he could do a lot with a story and not rely on the bombastic energy of a superhero comics to keep readers interested.  Higgins’ tone and Prasyeta’s art find a balance between western superhero art and more manga-influenced eastern comics, which is super appropriate given that they are adapting a TV show that was brought to America by splicing up clips of a Japanese children’s show. The artwork always reminds me of a slightly grittier Legend of Korra, which I am not complaining about. Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers legitimately feels like special, though, unlike many other licensed series, so Higgins and Prasyeta must be fans of the franchise for this book to be as good as it is.via BOOM! StudiosLaunched in June of last year, about six months after the main series started, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink followed the original Pink Ranger, Kimberly Hart, as she struggles with her identity as both a superhero and as a member of the team. Written by Brenden Fletcher, Kelly Thompson, and Tini Howard, with art by Daniele Di NiCuolo, it was a mini-series only lasting six issues, with the book being consistently enjoyable. It felt like it shared the same passion and energy for the characters/franchise as the main series. The six issues have since been collected into a trade paperback, both of which are available in print or online.via BOOM! StudiosLastly is Justice League/Power Rangers, the first crossover that has been released since BOOM! took over the series. Written by Tom Taylor and with art by Stephen Byrne, the series follows the two teams colliding after their respective villains accidentally cause their universes to merge. Tom Taylor, the writer of the Injustice comic book based on the video game, seems to have a knack for getting his hands in a toybox and running wild with it, which clearly shows here. Artist Stephen Byrne is one of my favorite creators in comics, with a great style that lends itself especially well to the colorful chaos that this series has. The first three issues are out so far, and available in stores and online at Comixology.
