The first volume of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic was just as awesome as I expected. The dialogue was witty and fun to read. The panels are full of colour and full of action. All in all a brilliant comic.
This comic is a reboot of the original series of Power Rangers, starting off from when the green ranger joins the Power Rangers. Tensions are high amongst the Power Rangers as they have to begin to start trusting the green ranger, who was under the influence of Rita Repulsa. I will not give any more of the plot away because it would spoil the whole experience of reading the comic. Although, if you like your zords, action and witty dialogue, then you will enjoy reading this comic.
My only issue with this volume is that this feels like the set up for the main event. There will probably be a lot more plot development in future volumes. Moreover, I am not a die hard Power Rangers fan, so I am judging this comic by itself than comparing it the various different incarnations of the Power Rangers.
The comic book version of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is slightly more mature and a good revamp of the 1990s TV series. Unlike the TV series, the comic is not limited by a small special effects budget. The action sequences are awesome and conversations amongst the Power Rangers are entertaining to read.
Rating: 4/5 Stars
