New #1 issues are simply part of the comic book industry. So the awesome Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios will be relaunching at a new #1 later this year. The last regularly numbered issue will be #55.
The new comic will still be written by Ryan Parrott. It will be called Mighty Morphin and will continue on from where the current series is leaving off. So…basically…the comic is going to continue as normal, it’s just going to get a new #1 issue and a new title. The artist will be Marco Renna.
They’re also going to add a new Green Ranger to the current team. I’d say it’s a fair bet the new Green Ranger is Lord Drakkon, but BOOM! is being coy about it so far.
If the new Green Ranger is Matt then I will lose my freakin’ mind! But I still think it will be Drakkon.
Meanwhile, Parrott will also be writing another sister title called Power Rangers. This series is going to follow Jason, Trini and Zack as they move forward in their adventures as the Omega Rangers…so, uh…the title doesn’t really work? But then “Omega Rangers” doesn’t have any brand recognition.
The artist for this title will be Francesco Mortarino.
I’m glad the Omega Rangers are continuing, because that means there is still time to introduce Omega Pink. It might not be Garrison Vox anymore, but it could still be anybody. If the Omega Pink Ranger ends up being Matt, I will lost my freakin’ mind all over again!
Both new comics will arrive in November.
Comic books were on fire this week! A bunch of my favorites came out, including previous favorites that I no longer like! Magnificent Ms. Marvel was another terrible issue, while Tony Stark – Iron Man was another great issue! And we’ve got a strong first issue for the new Jane Foster Valkyrie comic!
This week also saw the big kick-off to Jonathan Hickman’s revamp of the X-Men with House of X #1. I had high hopes for this relaunch…and the first issue delivers in spades! Easily Comic Book of the Week as it ushers in a crazy new X-Men status quo!
Meanwhile, sad news for Champions fans as it has been cancelled. Writer Jim Zub is a stand-up guy, so I’m sad to see his plans fall apart. But count me among the readers that just didn’t connect with the title. Sorry Jim!
