A movie is coming, but first the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are back in a new series of graphic novels, which follow the original team as they embark on a brand new set of adventures. The 1st novel released last week & the 2nd one is due out in the Fall. Come check it out!

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.”
