BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #20

Review: Power Rangers #1

Power Rangers #1

First, it’s great to be back in the world of MMPR (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, to us cool kids) again. I haven’t picked up an issue since the end of Shattered Grid and I can see a lot has changed. There are now Omega Rangers and the three we are shown in this issue are Jason, Trini, and Zack. I gotta say their uniforms and powers are freaking cool. Power Rangers #1 starts with the three former Power Rangers coming back to Earth. They bring a warning of a major universal threat called the Empyreals. Apparently, these are worse than Rita and Lord Zedd combined.

As they continue their reunion with their friends they warn of the danger coming forward. The Omega and MMPR teams clash over their philosophies about how to handle this terror and it stirs up some discontent. The Omega Team wants to set free Lord Drakkon to assist them as he is the only one they know with knowledge and experience of the Empyreals that could prove useful. Of course having gone through a cosmic war with Drakkon before the MMPR team wants no part of this and insists their must be another way. They even take it Zordon for a vote and he is dead set against it and reminds the Omegas that they are not his Rangers anymore and the decision is final. After some tension, the Omegas leave the Command Center and decide only one thing they can do. They have to break Lord Drakkon out.

Maaaaann, talk about an awesome issue. Though the players have changed the goals are still the same, protect the universe at any cost. I really enjoyed the conversations in Power Rangers #1 and they felt very organic. They seemed like real people disagreeing but with great points. I like the characterization of the new MMPR team and there were some touching moments between new and former Red Rangers.

The writing of this was fantastic and the art was so fluid and energetic it moved in a way that the Rangers felt like they were darting across the pages in front of me. As for the coloring, I maintain that BOOM! Studios has the very best colorists in the industry bar none. Raul Angulo uses a color pallet that just wows. I love it. The writing by Ryan Parrott seems fresh and keeps everything tightly paced and doesn’t seem to have any big lulls in the story.

I know people think that a reboot with a brand new #1 is a bit unnecessary, but I don’t. Power Rangers #1 gets you up to speed pretty quickly and takes a new direction. At the same time, it’s exciting enough that makes me want to track down all the stuff I haven’t read from the former series just to see how we got here. The art was great too and I was floored by the Omega Rangers designs. Hasbro needs to get us figures for these quick. Nothing much more to say other than the rest of the issue after the Omegas make their decision is pretty slick. I definitely dug this comic and last but not least, once again “It’s Morphin Time!”

Review: Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1

Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1

Growing up, I was a bit too old for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. When the series debuted in the United States I just wasn’t the target audience. Due to that, I’ve generally ignored BOOM! Studios various series and events. It’s just not a property I was “in to”. After having read Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, I feel like I may need to rethink that decision.

When I think of the Power Rangers I think of spandex-clad kids fighting people in rubber suits. There’s a campiness that never appealed to me. I clearly missed a lot in recent events that shifted all of that. Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 is dark, full of action, and feels like a property that grew up.

Written by Ryan Parrott, Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 sees the Ranger Slayer return to her world. Forces battle for control as a power vacuum remains after the disappearance of Lord Drakkon. The Ranger Slayer has seen the error of her ways and is looking for redemption. Those errors are never quite explained for new readers but doesn’t impact the quality of the story at all.

The story is nearly all action as dual forces must battle undead ghosts from an unknown source. The revelations and twists and turns Parrott deliver keep the reader engaged. It’s a comic that is sure to excite long time fans and new readers as key moments are nailed and presented with the fun excitement of someone who clearly loves the property. This is just a fun comic to pick up and enjoy and as a relatively new reader, it has me wanting to read more.

Parrott is helped by Dan Mora‘s art which just nails the excitement of the comic. There’s an energy about it all that sucks the reader in. Much like I said above, it’s fun. With color from Raúl Angulo and lettering by Ed Dukeshire the comic could easily have gone too “dark.” Instead, it delivers a nice balance from the bright aspects I associate with the Power Rangers and the concept of an undead army. The team too really nails the emotions the characters experience. Whether it’s initial distrust or guilt to the excitement of piloting a Zord, the emotions ooze from the page.

Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 is a fantastic one-shot that has me, someone who’s not a Power Rangers fan, wanting to read more. There’s just a fun ride to it all that’s easy to follow but clearly delivers a bit more for those who are long-time fans. It’s also a one and done comic that you can pick up and just enjoy while also acting as a follow-up to what was and leading into what’s to come. I began the comic not a fan of the Power Rangers and ended wondering what I missed out on and where to start.
