It seems that there’s now a lot of hype towards the upcoming comic book for POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration. It’s not surprising really, since it reached its $250,000 stretch goal less than a day after it launched its Kickstarter campaign. In fact, there’s so much hype around it now that they’re even including a little bonus into the comic. It’s even a pretty nice bonus to boot. What else do you call an entire prelude chapter for the comic?
POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration ~ A New Prelude?
BOOM! Studios is proud to announce that the upcoming POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration will now include a prelude story for it. All because it met its $250,000 stretch goal on its Kickstarter campaign, which means that we get a brand new Power Rangers series. In fact, as of this writing, said Kickstarter campaign has raised a grand total of $608,054 USD from 1,627 backers. With only 40 hours to go on the campaign, also as of this writing, it seems unlikely that it will meet any further stretch goals, but who knows? Maybe it will reach that $625,000 stretch goal. Cross your fingers, mates.
Anyhow, we do have a few details about this prelude story for POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration. It will consist of a 8-page short story. The writer of this short story will be none other than Amy Jo Johnson. Power Rangers fans will remember her as Kimberly Hart: the original Pink Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. In fact, Johnson herself has something to say to us about this prelude below:
I want to thank the faithful Power Ranger community for the love and excitement from the announcement of my up-and-coming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series! To kick it off, BOOM! has invited us to write a short story for this summer’s upcoming anthology special, which will introduce our re-imagined world of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! OG style!
Unfortunately, we have no idea when we’ll get to read this short story. Just as we have no idea when we’ll see this new POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration comic. BOOM! Studios are apparently keeping things under tight wraps for now. Tune back in to THS later to find out more about this mystery Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic when we do.
