Jason David Frank and Kyle Higgins shocked the world with their Power Rangers Shattered Grid live-action trailer, and now we've got a look behind the scenes.

Fans can check out Shattered Grid now in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 and Go Go Power Rangers #8, both of which are in stores. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26 hits stores on April 18.
