Power Rangers: Shattered Grid Conquers Free Comic Book Day 2018

BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands have announced the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Free Comic Book Day Special. Arriving in comic shops worldwide on Free Comic Book Day (May 5th, 2018), this FREE comic is a tie-in to the hotly anticipated Power Rangers: Shattered Grid comic book event and features the story of how Zordon turns to the Morphin Masters for help in the Power Rangers’ darkest hour as the Rangers battle Lord Drakkon—an evil version of Tommy, the Green Ranger, from an alternate reality. The issue will be written by Kyle Higgins and Ryan Parrott and illustrated by Diego Galindo with a cover by Jamal Campbell.

Power Rangers: Shattered Grid is the first comic book event story in the 25-year history of the pop-culture phenomenon. The epic event begins on March 21, 2018 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 by Kyle Higgins and Daniele Di Nicuolo, featuring events so shocking that the issue will be sealed in a black polybag to prevent early spoilers. Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers by Ryan Parrott and Dan Mora join Power Rangers: Shattered Grid starting in issue #9, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Free Comic Book Day Special will add an exciting angle to the storyline.

Oni Press’ Invader ZIM: Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy for Free Comic Book Day

Nickelodeon’s favorite Irken alien is available for free in May 2018, as Oni Press‘ Free Comic Book Day Gold Offering has been revealed! Invader ZIM: Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy is written by series creator Jhonen Vasquez. The comic, originally published as Invader ZIM #20, also contains art by Oni Press’s own Invader ZIM artist, Warren Wucinich, with colors by Fred C. Stresing, and a cover by character designer Aaron Alexovich.

Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy is GIR’s new favorite show and ZIM’s new favorite distraction from taking over the world–even though his plan this time is fool-proof. With his creation of the Conquer-Blob to do all the hard work, ZIM can watch TV until the job is done! All 385 seasons of “FBS” are devoted to, but never answer, the most important question: Sure, Floopsy bloops Shmoopsy, BUT DOES SHMOOPSY BLOOP FLOOPSY??? A smart and biting criticism of our binge-watching-obsessed culture…or, just a very funny story about ZIM watching too much TV. What’s not to love?

When asked about his cover for Floopsy Bloops Shmoopsy, ZIM character designer, Aaron Alexovich, simply screamed. And he wouldn’t stop, even when asked to.

DC’s Young Animal Gets a Remix in 2018 with new Titles and New Directions

Following the events of the DC/Young Animal crossover event “Milk Wars” this winter, the main titles of the DC’s Young Animal line will get a mix-up of their own, with new series titles and story directions. The pop-up imprint, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, continues to set the bar for innovation in comics, using the five-part event beginning January 31 to send each title back to #1, with strange and crazy new stories.

Beginning March 7, Shade has shed her alien identity, stepping out of her original Earth body into a new one. Shade, The Changing Woman begins as Loma, now free of the burdens of her past life, sets out to see more of her new home. But how will she cope when the madness she was forced to confront in the Milk Wars is now a mass of memory and confusion? To make things even more challenging, she’ll come face to face with the original Changing Man. Writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone will continue to helm Loma’s adventures.

Then on March 21, after a year of multiverse-hopping, Cave Carson returns to a normal life of digging and cave-diving, but it just isn’t the same for the explorer. Time fast-forwards as Cave and his daughter Chloe are sucked into an all-new adventure—literally—when they go spelunking in a black hole! Cave Carson Has an Interstellar Eye continues with writer Jon Rivera and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

Then on March 28, follow Violet Paige as she finds herself in a Gotham City unlike anything she’s known before. Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. begins ten years into the future, in a world without a Batman, with Gotham City now in the hands of a Collective. In a high-tech town with zero tolerance toward caped crusaders, what’s a woman who has vowed vengeance to do? The series is written by Jody Houser with art by Tommy Lee Edwards and Ibrahim Moustafa.

Launching from the backup story in “Milk Wars” is Eternity Girla new miniseries from GLAAD Award-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio and Eisner Award-winning artist Sonny Liew. The series follows the tragedy of Caroline Sharp, a former superhero and super-spy whose cursed powers have left her hideously deformed and unable to die! Her only solution? Destroy the universe. This new series begins March 7.

The “Milk Wars” event kicks off in JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1 on January 31. The epically weird crossover adventure featuring characters from the JLA and DC’s Young Animal will continue throughout February.

With a CRASH and a BANG, the cosmic strike of the Countdown begins as the greatest epic in the history of the Infinity Stones explodes onto the pages of Infinity Countdown! And it’s a beginning so huge, it can only be told in one sweeping, mind-bending tale.

This March, Gerry Duggan and Aaron Kuder are bringing you a spectacular, huge Infinity tale that will lead to an even greater story – and one that will impact the entire Marvel Universe! The Infinity Stones, thought to be lost forever, have suddenly reappeared — bringing with them the ultimate power for good and evil. Three stones have fallen into the hands of the mightiest heroes in the galaxy…but where are the rest?

As the hunt for the stones begins, a new weapon of unimaginable power is being forged…and it’s a weapon like nothing the universe has ever seen! What is its purpose? And who – or what – is the destructive force that will be unleashed on the world? The race for power in the post Secret Wars universe has begun, and its search will impact every Marvel character from the street to the cosmos, from the Avengers to Spider-Man to the X-Men, even bringing about the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy!

First, this February, prepare for the upcoming epic with Infinity Countdown Prime #1 written by Duggan with art by Mike Deodato, an action-filled 48-page epic that reveals the location of all six stones as the countdown begins… plus, a prose primer that details the saga of the Infinity Stones, and how they came to be in the Marvel Universe!

Then, in March, dive into all the action with Infinity Countdown #1, where Duggan and Kuder bring Marvel’s heroes together in a battle for power, leading our heroes down a dark path towards the world’s possible inevitable end! And this is only the start of a story that will grow bigger – get ready as this five part epic sets the stage for an earth-shattering tale that will change the Marvel Universe forever.

And be prepared for the Guardians of the Galaxy to disassemble!

Don’t miss the battle – and the story – that will change the balance of cosmic power! The Countdown for the ultimate weapon begins this February…but where it ENDS, only time will tell…
