The Ranger Slayer Returns In ‘Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn’ This August

by James Ferguson

The Power Rangers comics from BOOM! Studios have had some amazing stories including the introduction of two fan-favorite characters with Lord Drakkon (the alternate reality version of Tommy Oliver who ruled over his universe with an iron fist) and the Ranger Slayer (the Kimberly Hart of that same world that fought against him). This August, BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, will publish Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn, a three-issue mini-series where the Ranger Slayer fights against the deadly secrets of her former master’s legacy. It’s written by Anthony Burch and illustrated by Simone Ragazzoni.

Writer Anthony Burch says:

I’m extremely excited to spend time in the Power Rangers universe, especially in the Coinless timeline of Lord Drakkon! I hope fans are excited about this slightly darker, more apocalyptic tale starring some of our favorite new characters…and maybe a few returning old ones.

Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn picks up after the events of Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1. Kimberly seeks to purge the terrifying hold Drakkon had over her world, starting with Deadlock – the prison tower where Drakkon held all who opposed him. Even the Ranger Slayer has no idea of the true power kept in this prison and what unlocking those doors will set into motion. As she investigates the worst of Drakkon’s secrets, set sets in motion the villain’s final plan that will pit her against a fan-favorite Power Rangers villain as we’ve never seen them before.

Artist Simone Ragazzoni added:

I can’t tell you how excited I am for Drakkon New Dawn! When I was a child, watching Power Rangers was the highlight of every Sunday morning so being the one who will bring them to life in this series is a huge honor. Action, fights, monsters, heroes in costumes, and an extremely talented team: what else could I ask for?

Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn #1 will feature a main cover by Jung Geon Yoon (which has yet to be revealed) and a variant cover by Goni Montes.

Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios says:

Kimberly must return home to face the fallout from her Ranger Slayer days but even she couldn’t have been prepared for the consequences of digging into Drakkon’s darkest secrets. In Drakkon New Dawn, Anthony and Simone place our heroine in a situation where she’ll have to face enemies new and old, as well as a heartbreaking choice when confronted with the unthinkable!

Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn #1 is set for release in August 2020.
