Power Rangers' Ranger Slayer Homages Classic Wonder Woman Cover

BOOM! Studios has spoiled fans with some amazing covers in the past, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #27 will be no exception. The upcoming issue will feature several slick new covers, and in the past, those covers have homaged everything from X-Men to classic films. For their latest retailer exclusive cover though BOOM! Studios and artist Amelia Vidal went above and beyond, homaging an iconic DC Comics Wonder Woman cover, and Ranger Slayer pulls it off brilliantly.

The new cover will be exclusive to Kirby's Comics and was drawn by Amelia Vidal. The cover features Ranger Slayer (the Drakkon Universe Kimberly) standing in a very familiar pose with a large Power Coin behind her and the Ranger's weapons peeking out from behind it. You can also see her helmet and bow towards the bottom as her cape flows out, and if it all looks familiar it should.

That's because it's based on the classic Wonder Woman cover by Brian Bolland from Wonder Woman #72. The cover features Wonder Woman's shield with numerous spears appearing behind it as a helmet and shackles are found on the robe below. Diana is staring off into the distance in exactly the same pose, making this is a cool collector's piece for fans of the two franchises.
