Synopsis: An eye-opening new piece of Power Rangers history is revealed! Well before Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy, and Trini became Power Rangers, Zordon was forced to recruit Rangers to battle a foe who’s downright…psycho.
While the ongoing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic started off as a modern adaption of the original American show, it quickly introduced time travel, parallel, dimensions, and new characters that took it in a wild new direction. Issue #20 is just the latest in a series of unexpected twists from Higgins.
“Any opportunity to add to the Power Ranger mythos is always an incredible honor and one of the fundamental reasons I love writing this book,” Higgins said in a statement. “Case in point, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20 is going to take us back in time to explore a very different—yet familiar—team of Rangers: the ones that stopped a secret Moon attack during the 1960s. Who were the Power Rangers of 1969? What happened to them? And how do they fit into our current story? We’re jumping into the Wayback Machine to the Summer of Love to meet a new cast of Rangers, some of whom will have a huge impact on the future of the Mighty Morphin team!”
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20 will be released on October 18.
