MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS Comics To End With Issue #55; Two New Relaunch Titles Announced

BOOM! Studios is ending their flagship Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series with issue #55, but have also announced two new MMPR-centric series that will continue to follow our favorite heroes.

Just months after announcing the conclusion of their Go Go Power Rangers series, BOOM! Studios has now announced the end of their flagship Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series, which will wrap up its critically acclaimed four-year run with issue #55 in October.

However, BOOM! has no intention of leaving the morphenomenal universe anytime soon and will be launching a whole new era - the Unlimited Power era - of Ranger comics with a pair of all-new ongoing series: Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers.  

Both Mighty Morphin #1 and Power Rangers #1 will launch in November 2020 and will be written by fan-favorite Rangers writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Rising star Marco Renna will be the artist behind the former while Francesco Mortarino (Firefly: The Sting) will tackle the latter. 

The new Mighty Morphin series will follow an all-new team, presumably the second iteration of the MMPR team (Tommy, Kimberly, Billy, Rocky, Adam, and Aisha), and will introduce new allies (Kat?), new villains, and an all-new Green Ranger, meaning the team could have a full time roster of seven instead of six. The series also promises the return of Lord Zedd and a big Zordon reveal. 

Meanwhile, the new Power Rangers series sounds even more exciting as it will continue the adventures of original Rangers Jason, Trini, and Zack, who now make up the all-powerful Omega Rangers, and thrust them into an all-new story that will see them go rogue and possibly team up with the nefarious Lord Drakkon to save the world!

The POWER RANGERS: UNLIMITED POWER Era Begins with MIGHTY MORPHIN #1 in November 2020

Two New Series. Two New Teams. A New Beginning For All Power Rangers Is Here!

BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced an exciting new series premiere, MIGHTY MORPHIN #1, from superstar writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and rising star artist Marco Renna, as they launch the first of two all-new series with two all-new teams in November 2020.

A new Mighty Morphin team has assembled to take on the deadliest threats to Earth – but who is the All New Green Ranger by their side?

The new Mighty Morphin team is on a collision course with an even deadlier Lord Zedd, who has a new mission and a new motivation – one that will change everything you thought you knew about our heroes! But even if the Mighty Morphin team can find a way to survive Zedd and their mysterious new enemies, they may discover the greatest threat to their future is the shocking secret of Zordon’s past! A new Mighty Morphin epic begins here, perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike.

New York Times bestselling author Ryan Parrott is a comic book and screenwriter based out of Los Angeles. A graduate of Chapman University, Parrott has written for television series NBC’s Revolution and Hulu’s Chance. Parrott is also known for his work on DC Comics’ Batman: Gates of Gotham, IDW’s Star Trek comic book series, including Starfleet Academy, Boldly Go, and Manifest Destiny, Dynamite’s Death to the Army of Darkness, and his creator-owned projects Volition, Oberon, and Dead Day with Aftershock Comics. He is currently the writer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with BOOM! Studios.

“This is a brand new beginning for an all-new Mighty Morphin team featuring characters you know – and an all new Green Ranger. This book is a chance to explore the past, present and future of the team in ways you’ve never seen before,” said Parrott. “Coming out of Necessary Evil, there seemed like an opportunity to not only start fresh but focus the story in on our new MIGHTY MORPHIN team like we haven’t before.”

Marco Renna is a comic artist from Italy who made his debut with Action Lab Comics. After winning the Top Cow Talent Hunt 2016, Renna became the main artist of Fathom Vol.6 and other Aspen Comics series. He has also worked on some short stories such as Sandokan for Star Comics and Muhammed Ali for Petit à Petit. He also collaborated with Dynamite Entertainment on James Bond.

“I’m really happy to have the opportunity to work on Power Rangers. I used to watch the TV show every day and being able to draw these characters is a dream come true,” said Renna. “I feel honored to be part of this fantastic team and I am excited to go into this new adventure. I really hope you enjoy my art.”

Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 27 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the franchise celebrates its 27th season, “Power Rangers Beast Morphers” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.

The hit comic book series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers launched in 2016 at BOOM! Studios, outselling nearly every other comic book in its month of release. The series went on to launch numerous hit spin off series like Go Go Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The series concludes in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #55, on-sale in October, which also features the first appearance of the All New Green Ranger.

“The UNLIMITED POWER era is all about new beginnings for two new teams of Power Rangers as they meet new allies, new enemies, new secrets and an all new Green Ranger,” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Both of these new series will be critical for long time fans and present an exciting jumping on point for new readers who will learn that the true history of the Power Rangers isn’t what they expected.”

The POWER RANGERS: UNLIMITED POWER Era Begins with POWER RANGERS #1 From BOOM! Studios

Two New Series. Two New Teams. A New Beginning For All Power Rangers Is Here!

BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced a brand new series, POWER RANGERS from superstar writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and acclaimed artist Francesco Mortarino (Firefly: The Sting), launching in conjunction with the brand new Mighty Morphinseries. Two New Series. Two New Teams. The Era of UNLIMITED POWER begins HERE—and only Lord Drakkon, their greatest enemy, can save the Power Rangers!

POWER RANGERS #1 reveals a new cosmic threat that only the original Power Rangers, now known as the Omega Rangers – Jason, Trini and Zack – can hope to defeat! But their secret weapon is… the villainous Lord Drakkon?! Zordon forbids the Omega Rangers from contacting Drakkon, so if they want to save the universe then they’ll have to go rogue – and go up against their Mighty Morphin allies.

He is currently the writer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with BOOM! Studios.

“We’ve spent several years building out the Power Rangers comic book universe and continuing the adventures of the Omega Rangers gives us a chance to fully explore it beyond the confines of the show. Not only can we add more heroes and villains but we can also bring in elements from future seasons viewed through the lens of familiar characters,” said Parrott. “It’s very exciting to explore new corners of the Power Rangers universe that fans have always imagined – and also never expected!”

Francesco Mortarino is an Italian cartoonist who graduated from the Comics School of Milano. He started working at Sergio Bonelli Editore on the comic series Nathan Never and made his US comics debut on Jupiter’s Circle for Image Comics, soon working on other projects like Dungeon & Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate for IDW. Mortarino has worked on high profile BOOM! Studios series including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Firefly: Bad Company.

“A year and a half ago, I helped illustrate Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #33, and now I’m drawing the first issue of the new POWER RANGERS series! I’m very proud to be a part of this new era with Ryan and BOOM! Studios,” said Mortarino. “I know that many readers are waiting to see where the new team’s adventures will take them. As a fan myself, I can’t wait to show everyone exactly what I’ve been working on. It’ll blow your minds!”
