Everyone talks about the 1990’s as if it wasn’t as great as the 1980’s, but that can kind of be far from the truth. Was it a completely different mindset in music and entertainment in the 90’s then it was in the 80’s? Well, the answer is an obvious yes because the climate always changes from decade to decade. The one thing that the 90’s did provide us with is the very bad ass TV show The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers which has seen so many different versions come out since it’s release 25 plus years ago. The tale of a group of kids that you never thought would come together do when they band together to fight the forces of evil when they are given special abilities by Zordon. They fight their first battle against Goldar and they win. That is where today’s comic book comes in entitled Go Go Power Rangers #1 which was written by Ryan Parrott (Star Trek) and illustrated by Dan Mora (WWE: Then. Now. Forever. #1). The comic follows what happens immediately after the win because we know all about the legendary battles, but what did they have to deal with afterwards? Especially when you find out from Zordon that Rita Repulsa is free from her jail!
I have to be honest in saying that this is a comic book that I wish I picked up back when it first came out. It’s actually kind of cool to see what happens to the gang when they have to return to their normal lives following a catastrophic event in Angel Grove. If you have ever read any of the WWE comics that Boom! Studios puts out then you already know that you can expect nothing but the best from Dan Mora. I love his artwork and he has not disappointed me yet. I really loved the picture that I chose to accompany this paragraph because it’s not something I can remember seeing them do. It’s just them hanging out with their Megazord just soaking in the day’s victory and contemplating what happens next. The story is pretty solid as you see that they are not quite mature enough and Ryan Parrott does a good job of writing that in which includes their confrontation with Rita Repulsa. They’re not all exactly a cohesive unit and it can almost be said that it was either luck or the lack of real ability from Goldar that led to their first victory. I can not wait to read on and see what happens next for our young Power Rangers. Check out the comic for yourselves and check out my grades below:
