A New Zord Debuts In June With Power Rangers: Shattered Grid

by James Ferguson

Shattered Grid,” the mega event poised to rock the world of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics, begins this month. We’ve seen a lot of teases from Boom! Studios and Saban Brands, including the debut of a brand new Power Ranger and a huge team-up featuring members from most of the franchises over the 25 year history of the brand. In June, we’ll see the debut of a new Zord coming from the mysterious Ranger Slayer.

June’s portion of “Shattered Grid” will come in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28 and Go Go Power Rangers #10. The Mighty Morphin team joins forces with many Rangers from across time and space to battle Lord Drakkon, a twisted, evil version of Tommy Oliver from another dimension.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28, from writer Kyle Higgins and artist Daniele di Nicuolo has the Mighty Morphin team splitting up into two strike forces to fight Drakkon across worlds. One is with RPM and the other with Time Force. The comic will feature a main cover by Jamal Campbell and variant covers by Jordan Gibson and Carlos Villa.

Go Go Power Rangers #10, from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Dan Mora, has the Ranger Slayer, in service to Lord Drakkon, threatening the future of the Power Rangers by destroying their pasts. Just who is this mysterious new Power Ranger? This issue will feature a main cover by Dan Mora and variant covers by Miguel Mercado, Audrey Mok, and Natacha Bustos.

Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios says:

Now that we’ve assembled so many iconic Power Rangers in one place, we’re putting them together in all-new teams to bring a whole new dimension to the fight against Lord Drakkon. And with the Ranger Slayer debuting a new Zord in their conflict with the Mighty Morphin team, this is the biggest month of Power Rangers: Shattered Grid yet!

I seriously cannot wait for this event to start. I feel like it’s been teased for so long and we’re about to see the big payoff that has been building since the comic series began.
