Here are 5 reasons why you should pick up Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Annual #1:

5) The Writers!

This collection features the exciting writing of Kyle Higgins, Anthony Burch, Caleb Goellner, Adam Cesare, Becca Barnes, and Alwyn Dale. Each short story reveals bit by bit how Drakkon’s sinister master plan is actually working!

4) The Artwork!

The stunning artwork comes from artist Marco To, Patrick Mulholland, Dylan Burnett, Hyeonjin Kim, and Simone Di Meo. Readers are definitely going to love the phenomenal illustrations of Power Rangers from Zeo and In Space fighting against Drakkon’s forces.

3) My Personal Favorite!

Following the tragic event of “Shattered Grid,” writer Kyle Higgins emphasizes the mourning and loss over Tommy’s death through “Zeo.” Higgins and To do an excellent job showcasing just how cold-hearted Tommy’s evil counterpart really is. The short tale also takes Jason’s friendship with Tommy to another level.

2) The Colors! The Colors!

When the Power Rangers are in action, the colors are so vivid and eye-popping. That’s something the comic book page has perfectly found a way to translate from the television screen. Colorists Matt Herms, Raul Angulo, Joana LaFuenete, Jeremy Lawson, and Joana Lafuente each find a way to highlight the primary tones, such as red and green.

1) A Fantastic Read!

Overall, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 2018 Annual #1 does a fantastic job demonstrating just how frightening Lord Drakkon is and how outmatched our Rangers  are. Each action-packed short story delivers the goods readers will absolutely love!
