Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1

Finally my dream has come true. The original Power Rangers have gotten their own ongoing comic series. The past few years Bandai has been releasing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers legacy items, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original show. After buying most of these excellent collectors items, I wondered if they were working on some type of film, book or comic. Well the film is coming soon, but we also got the announcement that a comic book was in the works and finally it is here. Thank Zordon they released a zero issue which was really good and highly collectable if you got the variant covers. I was extremely happy to get a zero issue because I was worried about how it would turn out, but also my patience was growing thin. So once again FINALLY, the first issue has arrived and it didn’t disappoint. First off, I would like to say that the art style is perfect for the Power Rangers. The art still feels young and fun, but it has this serious feeling to it in order to legitimize it as a comic book. Now on to the story. The story is based around the time that Tommy Oliver, the green ranger has turned on Rita and joined the Power Rangers. As all Ranger fans know, the green ranger era is the coolest era of the Rangers. Issue one deals with what it means to be a ranger, but also what the rangers mean to others. It is show that even though the Rangers save the world from evil, they cause a lot of destruction themselves just from fighting evil. Personally as a super fan I am really happy with this type of story because it has that original show charm, but it has a mature and serious tone to it, which breathes life into the series and makes it feel fresh again. Now as much as I love the story, I have to say that it doesn’t do a good job to help newcomers with the series. If someone doesn’t know much about the Power Rangers or is a casual fan, some parts and characters will go over their head. The action in this issue is really good and the dialogue has the Rangers charm with a serious spin to it. I don’t want to spoil much because it is a really good issue, so I won’t get into more story details. Overall the first issue of MMPR is excellent with the sole issue of accessibility.
