Review: ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ #6: Enter The Dragon

- Advertisement -

The Rangers must face a seemingly all-powerful threat entirely on their own without the guidance of Zordon. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, Jason must lead the Rangers through these darkest of times.

Writing

This story is making the most of what it has available. It is doing what few other Power Rangers books did before, and is telling stories which couldn’t have been told in the story. Well, other books did tell stories which couldn’t have been made in the show, but they weren’t as entertaining or gripping as this new series by Boom! Studios. The fact that the plot is continuous and ever changing really helps to make it stand out amongst previous comic series starring the characters. Here, the Rangers must really think outside the box in order to properly deal with their enemies.

Writer Kyle Higgins really is showcasing a more mature Power Rangers story than ever which is what many aging fans have been looking forward to. I just wish he would tone down the bickering a bit, which is coming from the Rangers issues trusting Tommy. Hopefully his actions in the next issue will finally prove he’s someone who has their back.

This issue is filled with great moments thanks to Hendry Prasetya on art and Matt Herms on colors. The villain of the issue, the Black Dragon, and his abilities would not have been as powerful without their work. It’s especially noteworthy when his attacks start to blast the Rangers out of their suits and back into their human identities. It looks much more impressive than any attempt to show the Rangers losing their powers has ever been, even in the show.

Conclusion

This is a fantastic issue with a lot of memorable action in it. It also ends on a nail biting cliffhanger. Now if the writer can tone done the distrust amongst the team, then this series will be even better.
