Review: Mighty Morphin #1

Mighty Morphin #1

Growing up, I didn’t watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I was just a bit on the outside of its age range and the campy nature of it wasn’t something that really interested me. I’ve seen the enthusiasm for the show and property from numerous friends and have always wondered what the attraction was. At this point, Power Rangers feels almost too overwhelming to dive in to. But, from time to time I’ve checked in on the comics in an attempt to. And, each time I’ve been impressed with what I’ve read. Mighty Morphin #1 kicks off a new era for the series, an era of ultimited power! It also felt like a good opportunity to dive in and see what I’ve been missing.

Writer Ryan Parrott takes us into this new era focused on the mystery of the new Green Ranger. Also swirling is Zordon’s past which looks like it’ll come into play. Without knowing much about recent Power Rangers history the comic just feels like any other Power Rangers story to me. There’s the mystery of a Ranger as the main draw and it’s something that’s familiar to me. It’s one of the few episodes of the original television show I remember. And, in that way, it all feels like I’ve seen it before. But, it’s also done really well.

Parrott gives us more than Power Ranger action, there’s a focus on the team and their every day life. There’s a lot of characters to juggle around but the every day life of each is on display and we get to see them act like teenagers and be out of uniform. There is a lot juggled around at times though and I found myself getting mixed up by a couple of characters who look similar in design.

The art by Marco Renna is solid though. There’s a few issues I have with a couple of characters that look a bit too similar. But, overall the balance between action and the quieter moments is good. Renna is joined by Walter Baiamonte and Katia Ranalli on color and lettering by Ed Dukeshire. The look of the comic works and works well and there’s some really dynamic moments when it comes to the fight scenes. What also stands out is the body and facial language of the characters. You really get a sense of how they feel and their positioning and small details makes the non-action focused scenes jump out and be a bit more than a bunch of talking heads. There’s something dynamic about it.

Mighty Morphin #1 is a good start. It’s a debut that is familiar but still good. Even not being a Power Rangers fan or regular reader or viewer, the story and issue feels like something I’ve seen before. But, it’s still a really solid debut that’s done to a high quality. For new readers, it’s a solid introduction to the Power Rangers. For long-time fans, there’s a lot teased they should be excited for. Overall, it has something for everyone.

Review: Seven Secrets #1

Seven Secrets #1

Seven Secrets #1 is a hell of a debut. The issue is full of action that clearly has a manga influence. It’s also a lot of fun and at the same time drops in tragedy. For centuries, the Order has trusted Holders and Keepers in protecting seven secrets with the power to change the world. Now, a new force has arisen to gain the secrets and has no issues killing whomever is needed to do so.

Writer Tom Taylor nails the first issue. The start is full of action and could easily have entertained with just that. But Taylor delivers more. Instead, he dives into the tragic backstory of the narrator leading to… something. It’s interesting in that what seems like a main character is only briefly seen as a child delivering a viewpoint about the situation and our two initial main characters instead. The issue is truly a set up of what’s to come, the 15 minutes before the credits roll for the film that’s about to be viewed.

Taylor also doesn’t dive too much into what’s at play. We know the secrets are powerful things. But what exactly? That remains unclear and in that way the issue builds mystery along with its world. It throws you into the action teasing what’s to come and never quite showing its hand.

Daniele Di Nicuolo‘s art is top-notch. There’s a manga influence to it in some of the action sequences and character designs. Along with Walter Baiamonte and Katia Ranalli‘s colors and Ed Dukeshire‘s lettering, the visuals pop from the page. The character designs are all interesting with a style that’s reminiscent of the fantasy series Skullkickers. That’s not a bad thing at all as I loved that comic in every way. The art team brings a kinetic visual energy about the comic. You can “hear” the action like a big screen explosion and visualize the over the top moments. It’s a big budget debut in comic form (at least the first 15 minutes of the film).

If you can’t tell, I loved Seven Secrets #1. Taylor and the team knock it out of the park with a story that’s full of action but doesn’t forget the heart. There’s some tragedy there that a parent and a child can relate to, even if just understanding the horror, which makes the comic so much more than cool stunts and cool fights. It’s a series that was already at the top of my list of ones I was excited to read and this start makes it one of my favorite debuts of the year.
