LOS ANGELES, CA (February 20, 2020) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced at the 14th Annual ComicsPRO, a brand new one-shot special issue POWER RANGERS: RANGER SLAYER #1, from acclaimed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers writer Ryan Parrott and superstar artist Dan Mora (Once and Future, Klaus). This all-new one-shot, available in June 2020, featuring the villain turned fan favorite hero herself as she makes a choice that sets the stage for an epic event that reverberates throughout the universe!
The Ranger Slayer – AKA Kimberly Hart, the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger from the alternate universe once ruled by Lord Dakkon - returns home and nothing is like she expected. In a world that only knows her as a villain, can Kimberly show her universe that she’s become a hero...and is that even the right thing to do? Confronted by an old foe in a terrifying new form and finding her home in chaos, Kimberly will make a stunning choice that no Power Rangers fan can miss.
Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 26 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 milestone anniversary year with the 26th season, “Power Rangers Beast Morphers” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.
“POWER RANGERS: RANGER SLAYER #1 brings us to the very personal and shocking aftermath of the events of Shattered Grid for one of the all-time fan favorites: Kimberly Hart, Ranger Slayer,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “The consequences of Kimberly’s choices during Shattered Grid and in this issue are so shocking that nothing will ever be the same again for those who inhabit Lord Drakkon’s universe.”
