by James Ferguson

The anticipation for the upcoming event “Shattered Grid” spanning both Power Rangers comic series continues to grow. Boom! Studios and Saban Brands have released a new trailer promoting the crossover event set to begin in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25. The Green Ranger himself, Jason David Frank returns to the role to voice the character, specifically the alternate reality evil version named Lord Drakkon, the big bad of “Shattered Grid.”

Check it out below:

Jason David Frank says:

The Power Rangers have always been a beacon of light and good; there to save the world day in and day out. This time around, they face a nemesis far worse than they have seen, Lord Drakkon, the alternate and evil version of Tommy Oliver. Bringing the voice of Lord Drakkon, who’s vicious and ruthless, to life ran a volt of energy throughout me. It felt so good to be bad hahaha. The fans are in for a historic comic book event that will change the Power Rangers future like no other event in their past. They cannot miss it!

Kyle Higgins, the writer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has been building towards this mega event from the beginning. We’ve already been introduced to Lord Drakkon, but we didn’t see the full extent of his wrath. Beginning in issue #25, we’ll see him return with his newly reformed deadly army, crossing dimensions to threaten the lives of every Power Ranger ever. Expect to see many different Rangers from across different teams coming together to stop this unprecedented threat.

Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios adds:

Power Rangers: Shattered Grid is truly the biggest Power Rangers story that we could’ve imagined – and now it feels even bigger with Jason David Frank delivering such a chilling performance as Drakkon. From Mighty Morphin to Time Force to Super Ninja Steel, we’ve made sure that many of your favorite Rangers get moments to shine – along with introducing some brand new characters you won’t see coming!

Brian Casentini, Executive Producer, Power Rangers Content says:

When Jason David Frank stepped into our studio at Saban Brands, he captured Lord Drakkon’s voice in a way only Jason can. In partnership with BOOM! Studios, we are very excited for fans to view the trailer for this incredible comic book crossover event which tells a Ranger story of incredible scope and scale which we think will thrill the fandom.

I honestly cannot wait to see what the creators have in store for “Shattered Grid.” Everything I’ve seen or read about it has only gotten me more excited. Everything begins on March 21st!
