Papercutz announces the return of original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in new graphic novels
The original five Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are back. Sort of. Papercutz has announced that beginning in May of next year, it will be launching a new line of graphic novels that will feature the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The graphic novel series will act as “lost episodes” and will take place within the confines of the original television show. Considering how popular the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers show was back in the 1990′s, these new graphic novels could end up selling quite well.
News of the new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers graphic novels first broke over at MTV Geek…
Over the last few days, Papercutz has been dropping teaser images around the web, and now MTV Geek has the exclusive reveal. ’90s kids, listen up, because no one else knows this yet: Papercutz is launching a “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” graphic novel series starring the original Power Rangers team!
Papercutz is already publishing the “Power Rangers” graphic novel series, but this new companion series is set to work like lost episodes of the original TV show, so it’s going to feel just like 1995 again. Stefan Petrucha and PH Marcondes have been tapped as writer and illustrator, and the first book will debut in May of 2014.
The original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers show debuted back in 1993, with the final episode airing in November of 1995. The series was based around five teenagers – Jason, Kimberly, Trini, Zack, and Billy – who were gifted with the ability to transform into the superpowered Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and control powerful zords. The Power Rangers were constantly having to protect the Earth from the evil witch Rita Repulsa and her army of putty patrollers and gigantic monsters.
