The crossover we didn’t know we needed is coming next year! After coming off the unbelievable success with MMPR vs TNMT, seeing them double down with another crossover is amazing. Boom Studios and IDW, who is licensed under TOHO, are teaming up again for another epic comic book event with Godzilla vs MMPR! Is it March 2022 yet? I want this NOW!
Godzilla vs MMPR Premise
When Rita Repulsa uses an ancient artifact to transport herself to a universe without Power Rangers, she finds herself in a world with aliens, kaiju, and… Godzilla! Hoping to annihilate this new foe, Rita hurls her own terrible creatures into battle. But she never expects that the Rangers have followed her to this alternate reality, pitting the Dinozords themselves head-to-head with the King of the Monsters!
Godzilla Vs MMPR – A Huge Team of Talent!
Cullen Bunn who has written Godzilla: Cataclysm is writing the book, he went on to say:
“I am honored to bring two iconic franchises like Godzilla and the Power Rangers together. I’ve been a massive Godzilla fan since before I could read, and my love for the King of Monsters has never faded in all those years. Likewise, I’ve always loved Tokusatsu superheroics, and vividly remember watching the first episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when it came out. This is a crossover that I suspect will take readers by surprise—but it makes complete sense!” “Writing for these characters is a dream come true for this giant monster-loving kid-at-heart, and when readers pick up this book, I want them to feel that sense of awe and wonder that these characters have inspired for decades!”Cullen Bunn WRITER
Accompanied by Freddie Williams II who has done 2 other cross-overs in the past, (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man/ThunderCats). Saying :
“This will be the biggest, most stratospheric crossover I’ve ever drawn!” “It’s the combination of so many big genres: Giant Monsters vs. Mechs, martial arts vs. science and magic, with lots of collateral destruction! I’ve been watching Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episodes and Godzilla films to submerge my brain space, and have been reminded how fantastic and charming these designs are and how much fun prior creators had with their designs. I’m excited to contribute to the long legacies of these franchises!”Freddie Willaims II ARTIST

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about this latest crossover event at IDW Publishing,” . “Not just because a story featuring both Godzilla and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers checks off every awesome box on a comic-book crossover list, but also because we’ve got two of the best in the business — Cullen Bunn and Freddie Williams II — combining to bring it into being.”Tom Watlz EDITOR IDW about Godzilla vs MMPR
“When BOOM! Studios first stepped into the world of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, we had some big plans and huge dreams, so it’s amazing to be able to bring to life the biggest and most exciting monster mash-up of the century,” “It’s been an incredible process to put together this epic series with our friends at IDW, Toho, and Hasbro. We can’t wait to show fans everything they could ever hope to see and more from the King of the Monsters and the Power Rangers universe.”Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios
Thoughts from THE GRID & Monster Island
This is spectacular! To get the “Grandaddy of Tokusatsu” pitted against the “Teenagers with Attitude”. It’s obvious that the OG Dragonzord was HEAVILY inspired by Godzilla. Now we get to see them duke it out!
Seems this incarnation of the team is coming from Season One with Tommy as the Green Ranger. I’m glad they are choosing to make these crossovers outside of the Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers continuity, the rangers have enough to deal with right now and I can only imagine what the repercussions we will be seeing in March 2022.
Godzilla Vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 will be available with multiple cover variants. Including Cover A by series artist Freddie Williams II, Cover B by E.J. Su (Transformers),
Retailer Incentive edition by Williams II for covers for issues #2-5 to make a glorious panorama of kaiju and Zord conflict!
What do you want to see in the crossover? Any Particular Kaiju vs Zord battle? Do you want issues by issue reviews or one large review? We want to know!
