Writer Kyle Higgins teased the upcoming storyline at New York Comic-Con, which features the return of Lord Drakkon. That event is called Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, and will kick off in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25.
"Call me sentimental, but I love anniversaries. Over the last two years, I've been weaving threads in the pages of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, all leading to the 25th anniversary of the franchise," Higgins said. "Shattered Grid is a massive Power Rangers event that's both a celebration of the property and also the largest comics story I've ever tackled. Lord Drakkon's plan is so much bigger than our Rangers, our world, and even our universe. The Grid is shattering, every Power Ranger in all of existence is at risk, and it's going to take more than just the Mighty Morphin team to stand against Drakkon's armies."
“The key to incorporating Go Go Power Rangers into Shattered Grid was making the story integral to the event while never losing the personal stakes of the series—and we are doing that in a really exciting way,” Parrott said. “A fan-favorite Ranger from the future is going to arrive, searching for Drakkon—and end up dividing our team in a very personal way. Thematically,
Shattered Grid is the culmination of a series-long narrative, and will include a bevy of unexpected twists and turns.
“Shattered Grid has been something we’ve been planning
“From the very beginning, it’s been a joy working with Kyle, Ryan, and the entire team at BOOM! Studios, which is culminating in this fantastic event,” said Brian Casentini, Executive Producer of the Power Rangers franchise. “All of us at Saban Brands are thrilled to be able to bring this fantastic story to Ranger fans all
