LOS ANGELES, CA (December 17, 2019) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. and in partnership with IDW and Nickelodeon, announced today the MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #1 BLACK AND WHITE LIMITED EDITION, a brand new black & white edition of the acclaimed limited series debut written by Ryan Parrott (Power Rangers: Necessary Evil), illustrated by Simone di Meo (Venom Annual), and lettered by Ed Dukeshire (The Red Mother).
MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #1 BLACK AND WHITE LIMITED EDITION features a black and white variant of Dan Mora’s main cover art and Simone di Meo’s stunning original line art laid out in contrasting shades of black and white, available exclusively in select comic book stores on January 29, 2020. Fans should inquire with their local comic store for details on availability.
The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver - AKA The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger - but soon discover he's joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan! As the Rangers are sent reeling by this betrayal, they're confronted by another (fr)enemy - the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Can these heroes find a way to work together to defeat the bad guys and save the world from total destruction?!
“The enthusiasm and support for this series has been so overwhelming that we decided to commemorate it with a unique item to celebrate the launch," said Filip Sablik, President, Sales and Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “When you pick up this exclusive and limited black and white edition, which harkens back to the black and white indie explosion of the Eighties that birthed TMNT, you’ll get an unfiltered view of Simone di Meo’s incredible action and dynamic art! It’s a truly one-of-a-kind experience for fans and something we’ve never done before.”
