LOS ANGELES, CA (September 30, 2019)
BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. and in partnership with IDW and Nickelodeon, today revealed a first look at MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS/TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #1, the premiere issue of an all-new five-issue limited series event! Written by Ryan Parrott (Power Rangers: Necessary Evil) and illustrated by Simone di Meo (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Venom Annual), the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fight - and maybe team up with - the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the first time in comic book history beginning December 2019.
The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver - AKA The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger - and discover him in combat with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Rushing to his aid, the Rangers get caught up in battle with the Turtles. But afterwards, the Rangers find out that Tommy has joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan! Reeling from this betrayal, the Power Rangers must somehow find a way to work with the Ninja Turtles to defeat the true villains and save the world from total destruction!
