Review: I’m late to the Power Ranger fandom, having only started watching the show as an adult (thanks to my marriage to a hardcore PR fan). Over all, I always found it a fun idea, but the execution on the TV show dumped it down, made it cheesy, and removed all the best parts.
Enter the comic. Here the Power Rangers are everything I wanted them to be in the show: strong, smartass, teens dealing with conflicts between themselves and the burden of saving the world. Rita is actually a bit scary.
With classic art, suitable coloring, and creative use of the panels, this comic draws you into a darker world of Power Rangers than the white-washed TV show. Here, Power Rangers fail. Here, Power Rangers can die.
