Wait, What Just Happened in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9!? Spoilers Within!

new-rangerUsually, I like to stay away from spoilers, but this one is sanctioned by the publisher and it’s something that’s probably being missed by fans of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It also explains why the comic was sold out at two comic stores I visited today (likely under ordered so expect a new printing).

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 introduces a brand new mysterious Power Ranger with shocking origins. The comic from BOOM! Studios is out today in print and digitally.

This marks the first time a new Power Ranger has been created in “Mighty Morphin” continuity since the series debuted over 23 years ago. The mysterious new Ranger is a key architect behind the chaos that has plagued the Mighty Morphin team since the launch of the comic book series. This reveal is part of a long-term story with far-reaching effects and consequences.

The new Ranger, featuring an all-new costume, was developed by series writer Kyle Higgins (Nightwing, Hadrian’s Wall), main cover artist Jamal Campbell, Saban Brands, and BOOM! Studios. Check out the appearance of the mysterious new Ranger in the art below from the issue by artist Hendry Prasetya.

The identity of this new Power Ranger will be revealed in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #11 by Higgins and Prasetya, on sale in January. December’s issue #10 will feature a “break in the action” story featuring a solo adventure centered on the Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston.

February’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #12 (also by Higgins and Prasetya) will reveal the origin of this mysterious new Ranger.

Expect both of those issues to sell out so make sure to pre-order through your local comic shop (or buy it digitally).

Sons of Anarchy Creator Kurt Sutter Announces Sisters of Sorrow from BOOM! Studios

Kurt Sutter has announced the creation of a new series, Sisters of Sorrow, with comic book publisher BOOM! Studios. The prolific creator of television shows (Sons of Anarchy, The Bastard Executioner, upcoming Mayans MC) and feature films (Southpaw) is originating new content in the world of comic books first.

This new concept is the latest in a line of comic books and graphic novels from the top-rated Sutter at BOOM! Studios. Previously, Sutter supervised new, original stories in BOOM!’s hit Sons of Anarchy comic book series and launched an original miniseries, Lucas Stand, with the best-selling award-winning publisher.

Sisters of Sorrow is the story of four women, all victims of violent crimes, who unite to exact revenge on their perpetrators. By day, they are peaceful community activists in downtown LA. By night, they don bulletproof black leather under crisp white habits, strapped with state-of-the art weapons and the skills to use them.

Yep, nuns with guns, baby.

Sisters of Sorrow is set to debut in July 2017 at San Diego Comic-Con International.
