Earlier this year, Boom! Studios made headlines when it announced it would debut a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic in partnership with Saban Brands. Now, EW can exclusively reveal that fans can expect the debut of issue #0 in January.
The series will be penned by Kyle Higgins, who is known for his work on popular DC titles such as Batman Eternal and Nightwing, with an artist to be named at a later date. The #0 issue will also include a short story written by Mairghread Scott (Transformers: Windblade, Toil and Trouble) and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) that was released as part of a promotional campaign during this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Further details on the comics are being kept under wraps, but BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon has previously states that, “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. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers have an awesome fan base and we can’t wait to show them how much fun we’re having.”
