Ninja Steel Trailer thumb

Den of Geek brings us the exclusive to the new trailer for Power Rangers Ninja Steel. At first glance, I’m already noticing that Preston (Blue Ranger) is decked out like he’s from the 18th century…or just a fancy butler for today’s day and age! Check out the trailer below:

Review: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #9 from BOOM! Studios

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t read the comic and like the element of surprise, STOP. Do not read any further! Spoilers are ahead!

The art of executing a twist that is both believable and unexpected is quite difficult. That statement is even truer when said twist is occurring within the confines of a well-established franchise. In the Power Rangers universe, for every Mack is a robot there are a dozen Astronema is Andros’ sister. The twist in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #9 lies firmly within the former category as it turns a nearly year long storyline on its ear and proves that the action is only just getting started.

Let’s start at the beginning as Hendry Prasetya’s art is allowed to shine in another issue chock full of well-paced action that never feels too cluttered. One of the most amazing aspects of Kyle Higgins’ writing is that he never lets an action scene have the by the numbers feel that plagued the television series. He opts for showing the zords’ individual power as opposed to making the Megazord transformation sequence a foregone conclusion.

Freshly off of siphoning Tommy’s Green Ranger powers in order for Jason, Kimberly, Trini, and Zack to tap back into the Morphin’ Grid, the rangers systematically regain control of their zords and confront Black Dragon in Paris. The mecha battle that follows is a stalling tactic by the rangers. Even with a demorphed Tommy controlling the Dragonzord, the lack of the Triceratops puts the team at a severe disadvantage.

This is where long term characterization pays off. While I was somewhat critical of the lack of time dedicated to Billy being stuck in the Dark Dimension with Goldar, the payoff in this issue was fairly satisfying. On the surface, Goldar is a loyal minion who sees situations in black and white. Billy has systematically chipped away at that mindset by asking logical questions one would expect from a man of science. After witnessing the battle between Black Dragon and the rangers, Billy manages to exploit Goldar’s jealousy towards anyone gaining favor with Rita over himself. The golden monkey’s exile is self-imposed and soon he purposefully frees the Blue Ranger in hopes that he will in turn remove the obstacle in front of Goldar’s right hand man status.

Review: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #8 from BOOM! Studios

Editor’s Note: If you haven’t read the comic and like the element of surprise, STOP. Do not read any further! Spoilers are ahead!

The eighth issue of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers from BOOM! Studios is the refractory period of the current storyline. It’s the time when a masterful chess expert positions his pieces for the endgame. While not as glamorous as all that came before, it is still a necessary stage as the saga inches ever so closer to the finish line. Writer Kyle Higgins shows that even in moments of quiet contemplation, he can still execute an engaging tale.

The internal battle between Tommy and Zack reaches a somewhat satisfying conclusion but not before the very real battle that pitted Tommy and a depowered Jason in the Dragonzord against Black Dragon reaches its own end. Ultimately, this fight proved to be a tool in order for the rangers to obtain a chunk of their enemy. While it wasn’t the rangers’ original plan, in doing so this issue continued to display quality ingenuity on the parts of both the writer and artist Hendry Prasetya.
