As part of next year's massive 25th anniversary celebration for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series, BOOM! Studios, who are currently producing two excellent comics series based on the 1993 phenomenon, will debut its first major crossover event, Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, a title that ominously hints toward something going seriously wrong with Zordon's morphin grid.  

The event will see the original Mighty Morphin team continue their ongoing battle with Lord Drakkon - who, spoiler alert, is a twisted alternate-reality version of the Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver - and his deadly army that has obtained the ability to cross dimenions in order to execute a nefarious plan that threatens the existence of every Power Ranger in history. Yeah, so, that means for the first time in the history of comic books, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be joining forces with a number of their successors, which consists of a long line of heroes that include the popular Zeo, Turbo, Space, Lost Galaxy, Lightspeed Rescue, and Time Force teams, amongst others.

It's still unknown which teams will make an appearance, but writer Kyle Higgins hints that not all the teams will be from the future, meaning we could be getting more past Rangers a la the recent 1969 team that debuted in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20

The event will be told through the pages of the flagship Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series and the Saban's Go Go Power Rangers series and will also include two special one-shots. It is slated to begin on March 21, 2018 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 by Kyle Higgins and Daniele Di Nicuolo.

No Ranger Is Safe in ‘Power Rangers: Shattered Grid’

The epic comic book event begins with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25, in stores March 2018

Los Angeles, CA (December 4, 2017) – BOOM! Studios, in partnership with Saban Brands, announces POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID, the first comic book event in the twenty-five-year history of the global pop-culture phenomenon. In celebration of Saban’s Power Rangers’ 25th anniversary, 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 spoilers!

POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID will unfold in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers and include two special one-shots. Lord Drakkon—a twisted alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver (AKA the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger)—and his newly reformed deadly army will cross dimensions in order to execute on a plan that threatens the very existence of every Power Ranger ever. For the first time in comic book history, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will join forces with some of the most popular Power Rangers teams in the franchise to face the threat.

“Call me sentimental, but I love anniversaries. Over the last two years, I’ve been weaving threads in the pages of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, all leading to the 25th anniversary of the franchise,” said Kyle Higgins. “SHATTERED GRID is a massive Power Rangers event that’s both a celebration of the property and also the largest comics story I’ve ever tackled. Lord Drakkon’s plan is so much bigger than our Rangers, our world, and even our universe. The Grid is shattering, every Power Ranger in all of existence is at risk, and it’s going to take more than just the Mighty Morphin team to stand against Drakkon’s armies.”

“The key to incorporating Go Go Power Rangers into SHATTERED GRID was making the story integral to the event while never losing the personal stakes of the series—and we are doing that in a really exciting way,” said Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers writer Ryan Parrott, whose series joins the event in April with issue #9. “A fan-favorite Ranger from the future is going to arrive, searching for Drakkon—and end up dividing our team in a very personal way. Thematically, Go Go has always been about examining the past in order to understand the future—and there’s no clearer way of doing that than smashing them into one another in real time.”

Polybagged editions of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 will be shipped with six (6) main covers illustrated by Goñi Montes, randomly assorted in equal quantities, featuring Drakkon holding one of the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger helmets. Montes helped launch the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series from BOOM! Studios with a series of iconic covers on issue #0. A special chase variant by Montes will also be available and mixed in randomly within the polybagged editions. This landmark issue will also feature variants (shipping without polybags) by superstar artist Humberto Ramos (Amazing Spider-Man), Jordan Gibson (Howard the Duck), and a stunning wraparound cover featuring every Power Ranger ever by Scott Koblish (Deadpool).

POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID kicks off BOOM! Studios’ celebration of the Power Rangers 25th Anniversary, with additional exciting comics, graphic novels, and more to be announced soon.

Print copies of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 will be available for sale on March 21st, 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the one nearest you) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers like comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

“SHATTERED GRID has been something we’ve been planning from issue #0, with the singular goal of delivering the biggest Power Rangers story we could tell at BOOM! Studios,” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “If you think you know where this story is going, think again—we’re making sure each issue of SHATTERED GRID shows you something that no Ranger fan has seen before!”

“From the very beginning, it’s been a joy working with Kyle, Ryan, and the entire team at BOOM! Studios, which is culminating in this fantastic event,” said Brian Casentini, Executive Producer of the Power Rangers franchise. “All of us at Saban Brands are thrilled to be able to bring this fantastic story to Ranger fans all across the world.”

Disney will probably buy the franchise back then make everything non-canon anyway.
