Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Volume Four (BOOM! Studios, 2015; #13-16)

  • Things are looking bad for the Rangers: they’re split between two realities, fighting with no or limited powers, and up against the strongest armies they’ve ever faced.
  • But they bring hope wherever they go, even if it’s the darkest timeline.
  • At least, that’s what Zordon believes, even as he watches his alternate self place his faith in a seemingly irredeemable version of Tommy.
  • Higgins brings the first major arc of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to its close; it’s a satisfying ending, and it leaves room in the future for further consequences to the team’s war with Lord Drakkon.
  • This book’s art team consistently knocks it out of the park.

If you have any interest in or nostalgia for the Power Rangers, you should read this book.  I can’t imagine a better adaptation of it.
