Last year at San Diego Comic Con, Papercutz announced that they would be bringing the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back to life in a new series of graphic novels. The novel series will be set back in 1993 and will feature the original five Rangers (Jason, Trini, Billy, Kimberly, & Zack) going on a new set of adventures, which will take place concurrently with events of the TV series.

The first issue was released last week and the second issue, which will focus on the origins of Tommy, will be released in October. Check out the cover art and synopsis for the first two issues below:

When an ancient stone idol comes to life and starts blasting everything in its path with a morphing ray, it looks like the world is in pretty deep trouble; but it’s nothing compared to the havoc unleashed when Rita Repulsa gets her hands on it! The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers join the fray, but this new baddie has extra muscle from Squatt and the Putty Patrol. If the team doesn’t get a little help of their own from a trusted friend, this latest mission may be their last!

In 1993, the Power Rangers burst on the scene in an explosion of colorful combat, bizarre monsters, incredible robot battles, and Megazord-sized fun, spawning a global phenomenon and an ever-expanding storytelling universe. Papercutz is proud to present the long-awaited continuing adventures of the team that started it all!



This is the story Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fans have been waiting over 20 years for—the untold story of the origins of Tommy—the Green Ranger! How did Rita Repulsa choose this teen over others to wage war against the Rangers? This is the only place to find out.

Note to fans: This graphic novel takes place right before the classic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episode “Green with Evil.”

Sooooo yeah, this happened

It's a shame they always gear them toward little kids.
I mean, that's who Power Rangers are for, but it'd be nice if they were handled with the maturity of the big name comics of late.

ugh i would be all for an anthology covering where each team is now. a few pages for each rangers story leading totem all getting ready for the legend war.

The first episode introduced Kimberly in her short pink shorts. To this day she still gets me up.

Sweet! Was actually watching the movie the other day with my kids. Lol, bad film but cool visuals. I loved this growing, like most had a huge crush on the pink ranger. Tommy was my FAC, green or white. Zordon aka the kree supreme.

First cover is pretty cool. Second one is not that great. Rita is awesome. I have a headache! Best catchphrase ever. Always wondered if her medicine cabinet was filled with bottles of Asprin. IN SPACE is still my favorite season of all time.

@cyberbishop: and that megazord figure is badass. I always wanted one but got a dragonzord which was still cool because I had the morphed and dagger-flute

@CampBlood:
I'd like to "zord" the bejeezus out of her.

Not the hottest, but still okay in recent years.
