Universe in September 2020
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 18, 2020) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today revealed a first look at POWER RANGERS: DRAKKON NEW DAWN #2, the latest issue of a three-issue limited series, from writer Anthony Burch (Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack), artist Simone Ragazzoni (Odessa), colorist Raúl Angulo and letterer Ed Dukeshire. This exciting new series finds Ranger Slayer—Kimberly Hart, Drakkon's mightiest warrior—fighting against the deadly secrets of her former master's legacy.
Still reeling from the shocking discovery held deep in the heart of Drakkon’s prison tower Deadlock, Kimberly unknowingly triggers Drakkon’s final failsafe, sending a message deep into space that will ultimately put Kimberly face to face with an enemy even more powerful than Lord Drakkon himself. Will the Unknown Ranger she freed help her—or stand against her? And who exactly is hidden behind the mask?
Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 27 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the franchise celebrates its 27th season, “Power Rangers Beast Morphers” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.
