“I’m writing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The reality of that statement hasn’t quite sunk in yet but I’m sure when it does, I’ll feel a mixture of exhilaration, disbelief and sheer panic,” said writer Ryan Parrott. “Working on the franchise for the last two years has been one of the most creatively rewarding experiences of my life, not only because of the incredibly talented people I get to collaborate with behind the scenes but also because of all the amazing fans I’ve encountered along the way. I’m not going to lie. Kyle Higgins set the bar unapologetically high with his work on the series so far, not to mention the biggest Power Ranger comic book event ever inShattered Grid, but I’m looking forward to digging deep into these characters we all love and building off the stage that’s been set. May the power protect me.”
Born and raised in Milano, Daniele Di Nicuolo made his American comics debut withMirror’s Edge at Dark Horse. He has since worked with numerous publishers like IDW Publishing on The Infinite Loop Vol. 2, distinguishing himself at BOOM! Studios on top-selling series including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink and as the main artist on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers during the record-breaking Shattered Grid event celebrating the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
If with Shattered Grid we went big, now we’re going deep, straight to the core of what means to be Power Rangers and, most of all, what consequences come from choices made for a greater good,” said artist Daniele Di Nicuolo. “I couldn’t be happier to reunite with BOOM! Studios and the Rangers again. I’m super excited to explore the fallout of the adventures that we started with Kyle and honored to face this new journey with a great writer like Ryan, my pal Walter Baiamonte and so much of the crew from Shattered Grid. It’s Morphin time again!”
“The first appearance of the White Ranger is only one of the big revelations in Necessary Evil, as we learn just what happened after the Mighty Morphin team disappeared after the events of Shattered Grid,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Ryan and Daniele, along with our partners at Hasbro, have crafted a Power Rangers epic with surprises around every turn and an ending that changes everything!”
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #40 will be available on June 26, 2019.
