July 13, 2017 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – BOOM! Studios, in partnership with Saban Brands, is proud to reveal the original Power Rangers team in October’s release of MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #20.

In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20, writer Kyle Higgins (Nightwing: The New Order) and artist Daniele Di Nicuolo (Mighty Morphin Powers Rangers: Pink) explore an eye-opening new piece of Power Rangers history that will rock the very foundations of the current team to its core. Well before Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy, and Trini became Power Rangers, Zordon recruited Rangers in 1969 to battle a foe who was downright... psycho.

"Any opportunity to add to the Power Ranger mythos is always an incredible honor and one of the fundamental reasons I love writing this book,” explained Higgins. “Case in point, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20 is going to take us back in time to explore a very different—yet familiar—team of Rangers: the ones that stopped a secret Moon attack during the 1960s. Who were the Power Rangers of 1969? What happened to them? And how do they fit into our current story? We're jumping into the Wayback Machine to the Summer of Love to meet a new cast of Rangers, some of whom will have a huge impact on the future of the Mighty Morphin team!"

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #20 features a main cover by Jamal Campbell (Prowler), along with an interconnecting variant cover by Steve Morris (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), an Action Figure variant cover by Amazon Game Studios VFX artist Joshua McDonald, and a special variant cover by Klaus and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers superstar artist Dan Mora.

“We’re incredibly excited to show you a part of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers mythos that hasn’t been explored yet, but has definitely helped shape the team as we know it now. With Saban Brands, we have the opportunity to explore this part of the mythos in a new and exciting way, and we can’t wait to show the fans!” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “If the reveals of Lord Drakkon and the Black Dragon weren’t enough, then strap in—because this is when things get crazy!”

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is available every month for sale at local comic book shops (to find a shop near you, visit or through the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers including comiXology, Kindle, iTunes, Google Play, and the BOOM!
