Power Rangers: Shattered Grid Sells Out Again
BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands Rush Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26 Second Printing Back To Stores
LOS ANGELES, CA (April 19, 2018) – BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands announced today that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26, the next chapter of the historic POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID comic book event that hits stands today, has sold out at a distributor level. To meet the overwhelming demand from fans, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #26 Second Printing Variant will hit stands on May 16, along with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #27.
POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID unfolds in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers and include two special one-shots. Lord Drakkon—a twisted alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver (AKA the Mighty Morphin Green Ranger)—and his newly reformed deadly army will cross dimensions in order to execute on a plan that threatens the very existence of every Power Ranger ever. For the first time in comic book history, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will join forces with some of the most popular Power Rangers teams in the franchise to face the threat.
“BOOM! Studios & Saban Brands promised fans that POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID would get bigger with every chapter – and now you’re seeing the death of Tommy Oliver was only the beginning,” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “In the next few weeks, fans will discover even more iconic Power Rangers in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Annual #1, the origin of the Ranger Slayer in Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers #9 and a perfect jumping on point for new readers on Free Comic Book Day in an all-new special that’s, of course, free!”
“The fandom’s amazing reaction to POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID is everything we had hoped for and we are thrilled to see that the huge demand for the first issue of this saga continues with its second issue,” said Brian Casentini, Executive Producer, Power Rangers Franchise. “If you’re a Power Rangers fan, this event simply cannot be missed!”
