BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands Unveil News Twists in Major Comic Book Event
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 13, 2018) – BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands announced today new chapters of POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID, available at comic shops in June 2018.

In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #28, from writer Kyle Higgins and artist Daniele di Nicuolo, The Mighty Morphin team splits into two strike forces—one with RPM and one with Time Force—to battle Drakkon across worlds…even as all hope seems lost! This issue features a main cover by Jamal Campbell (Green Arrow), with variant covers by Jordan Gibson (America) and Carlos Villa (Lockjaw).
Then, in Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers #10, from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Dan Mora, the Ranger Slayer, in service of Lord Drakkon, has arrived, threatening the future of the Power Rangers by destroying their pasts. But who is this mysterious new Power Ranger? This issue features a main cover by Dan Mora, with variant covers by Miguel Mercado (Over The Garden Wall), Audrey Mok (Archie) and Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur).
“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,” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM!
