BOOM! Studios has announced a partnership with Saban Brands to publish new comic books based on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, THR reports
The new deal will kick off with six exclusive one-page comics being distributed at Comic-Con International: San Diego, each spotlighting a different Ranger.
The new BOOM! Series will focus on the era from the 1990s that originally launched the Power Rangers into the consciousness of a generation of viewers.
“We have big, big plans that will build on the core universe of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” said BOOM! Studios editor-in-chief Matt Gagnon. “We can’t give too much away just yet, but the story we’re kicking off with is vast in scope. Fans of BOOM! know we treat the existing properties we collaborate on with a focus on authenticity and quality. That’s the same sensibility we’re applying here.”
Each of the Comic-Con exclusive comics will feature pinup art from Goñi Montes (RoboCop) on one side, and a comic writtern by Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Witchblade) and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) on the opposite side. Each can be read individually, or together as a single six-page story.
Today also marks the anniversary of the theatrical release of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie. BOOM! Studios is certainly celebrating in style.
