Welcome back! I am back to reviewing my weekly comics again and today we will be reviewing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 41 written by Ryan Parrot and art by Simone Di Meo.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers has been going through a lot lately. Kyle Higgins’ run was just so beautiful and a great love letter to the series. No one could possibly fill in the hole that he left. But I have to say that the story after Shattered Grid was horrendous. It was a mess and confused me the whole time because it was just written to make up time for Ryan Parrot to finish up his story in Go Go Power Rangers so that he can take over. It was bad, but then Ryan Parrot toke over an issue or so ago and I was relieved. His writing fits Power Rangers very well and instead of continuing Kyle Higgins’ run, Parrot decides to do a time jump and it works out. We are still with the original team, but this is the point in which Jason, Trini, and Zack “go off to a peace conference in Switzerland” which was originally just a way to write them out fo the show because they weren’t being paid enough. The team now has Adam, Rocky, and Aisha.
I just want to say that as I kid I never got why those three characters left, but Ryan Parrot creates a deeper meaning to their leaving and continues their stories as well in this book. We learn that they didn’t actually leave for a peace conference or for a pay dispute, although that would be funny. No, Jason, Trini, and Zack left to become apart of a new group of rangers deemed the OMEGA Rangers. They patrol the whole universe and make sure that their universe doesn’t get shattered again. What an awesome concept that deepens their characters and the importance they have. They are stronger now. They have bigger goals now. And at the same time, Ryan parrot does a great job of reminding us that they are just highschoolers. They have friends and problems like everyone else. I loved this story and was surprised by how awesome a reveal this was to me. It feels like the Drakkon reveal, it made me nostalgic and reminded me of what great stories can still be told from a kids show. I love this book and can’t wait to see what goes on from here.
Overall, the book was incredible and was meant for the fans.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 19 / 20
