(There are spoilers below this photo)
Take all the things you THINK you know about Kyle Higgins and Hendry Prasetya's run on BOOM's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and THROW IT ON THE GROUND. This is not a remix of the Power Rangers you used to know. This is new. This is fresh.
This is freaking awesome.
FROM HERE ON OUT THERE BE SPOILERS
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
GO BUY THIS BOOK, THEN COME BACK AND READ THIS SPOILER REVIEW.
Ok, we good? Everyone knows the consequences of continuing to read? Ok, cool.
HOLY SHIT KYLE HIGGINS MADE THE FIRST NEW RANGER IN 23 YEARS AND HE'S EVIL AND IT'S FUCKING GREAT.
What Higgins and Prasetya have done is nothing short of brilliant.
I mean this next bit fully: This is the best rope-a-dope I've ever seen. This duo lulled us all into a comfortable nostalgia zone and then throat punched us with the sweet hot new.
LOOK AT HOW COOL HE IS!!!
BOOM! and Higgins are referring to him as the Mysterious Ranger, according to Newsarama. You can see the blend of Green and White Rangers here plus this mysterious ranger resides ON ANOTHER PLANE OF EXISTENCE.
Yes, other things happen in this issue. Goldar takes another step towards respectability as an overall bad guy. His moments with Billy are great. The all Green Ranger crew vs Black Dragon, also cool.
BUT THIS SHIT.
FINAL RATING: 10/10 NEW RANGERS
Look, flat out, Higgins and Prasetya get the 10 here for having the courage to do this. They get the 10 for execution. They get the 10 for refusing to settle. They get the 10 because I need more of this original creativity. Thanks for not settling BOOM.
