Boom Studios! has announced that they will be releasing a new graphic novel based on Tommy Oliver’s later years. The graphic novel titled, “Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon,” will delve deep into Tommy’s future self as he takes care of his son with the help of his wife, Katherine aka Kat.
The graphic novel will also focus on the untold tales in Tommy’s history after he retired from being the Black Dino Ranger in Dino Thunder. As he focuses his time as a father while letting the S.P.D. rangers defend the world from threats, his son soon goes missing so he journeys with the help of “some surprising teammates” to help him find him.
The graphic novel will be written by Kyle Higgins and illustrated by Giuseppe Cafaro (Justice League vs. Suicide Squad). Jason David Frank will be working as the “special consultant” for the graphic novel.
Kyle Higgins had this to say about the project.
“It’s rare that we’re able to tell stories about pop culture heroes at this critical juncture in their lives – and there’s few who’ve been as big a pop culture phenomenon as Tommy Oliver,” said Kyle Higgins. “As a fan of the original sixth Ranger, it’s an incredible honor for me to explore this untold chapter of Tommy Oliver: Power Ranger.”
“Tommy Oliver has been part of the Power Rangers for the past 25 years,” said Jason David Frank. “We’ve seen him morph into so many different Power Rangers. Now in MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: SOUL OF THE DRAGON, we get to see an in-depth story of the life of Tommy Oliver as a Power Ranger and person. We go deeper into the multiple Rangers Tommy has become throughout time- I’m excited for all of you to see how Tommy evolves into the Legendary Power Ranger he is and the legacy he will leave behind forever.”
