Summary:What’s to Love: Saban’s Power Rangers is a multi-generational, globally-recognized franchise. With its epic Ranger suits, giant Zords and Megazords, and—at its core—a story of super powered teens who defend the world from evil, the Power Rangers series is a pop-culture phenomenon that has continued to resonate with fans for more than 22 years. We, as huge Power Rangers fans ourselves, are excited to produce a modern Power Rangers comic featuring the iconic characters from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. What It Is: It’s Morphin Time! Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers make their BOOM! Studios comic debut in this kick-off #0 issue, which sets the stage for the rest of the series. After escaping Rita Repulsa’s mind control, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, joins up with the rest of the Power Rangers to combat her never-ending evil plans. Any semblance of a normal life is gone for Tommy now, but with his newfound family there lies hope for a brighter path. Includes the short story from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics! (goodreads)

Thoughts: If you were a kids in the 90's you knew about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. A group of teenagers fighting weekly to save the world from the evil Rita Repulsa. I  remember watching it every weekend seeing what the Rangers would do against the villain. Although a lot has change since it first air. A lot of kids from the 90's always will go back to the originals being their favorites. I am very excited for this comic book series from Boom! Studios. This series will focus on the original Rangers (Jason, Trini, Zack, Kimberly, Billy, and Tommy).

I really liked this issue. It gave us a taste of what is to come in March. It felt as if it will be giving us an insight on the Rangers lives. Which is something that a lot of us wonder. What did they do, other that fight villains, and being in the youth center.

Another thing that I enjoyed of this issue was that it felt like a contemporary story. Yes, they fight and have the ability to fight villains with enormous "zords", but it still had a vibe of normal teenagers with normal issues. This is something that I will be looking forward to reading more and if you were a fan of the show it wouldn't hurt to give this a try.
