Every Power Ranger Ever Assembles For ‘Shattered Grid’ Event
Power Rangers: Shattered Grid is the first-ever Power Rangers comic book event, one that will encompass every Power Ranger ever. Kicking off in the landmark Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 by Kyle Higgins and Daniele Di Nicuolo, the story sees Lord Drakkon – an evil version of Tommy Oliver from another dimension with the power of both the Green and White Rangers – spearheading an attack on the Morphin Grid. This threatens every Power Ranger that ever was, prompting numerous teams from over the years to team up to stop Drakkon. This event coincides with the Power Rangers 25th anniversary.
“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,” Higgins said in a press release from publisher BOOM! Studios. “‘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.”
Check out three new images, including a massive spread featuring every Power Ranger ever.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25, out March 2018, will be sealed in a polybag “to prevent spoilers,” according to the press release. The ‘Shattered Grid’ crossover will continue in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers and include two one-shots. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers picks up right after Tommy joined the team as the Green Ranger, whereas Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers follows the Mighty Morphin team at the beginning of their journey just after they became Rangers.
The press release also detailed the extra covers that can be obtained for this event: “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).”
