    Enjoying this for 2 reasons. It brings back childhood memories and secondly, for its simplicity in its story telling. Some back story of the rangers but overall continues the main story arc nicely

    This ongoing comic series is sooooo good! It's absolutely my favorite comic series currently being made. Kyle Higgins has done an excellent job of breathing new, modern life into this very 90s franchise. This volume is the calm between two storms. Lord Drakkon seems to be handled, but we all know #ShatteredGrid is coming! I enjoyed seeing the rangers doing their status quo rangering.

It's absolutely my favorite comic series currently being made. Kyle Higgins has done an excellent job of breathing new, modern life into this very 90s franchise. This volume is the calm between two storms. Lord Drakkon seems to be handled, but we all know #ShatteredGrid is coming! I enjoyed seeing the rangers doing their status quo rangering. They're traveling around the world solving problems and doing good deeds. Bulk and Skull have a web show about the rangers. I like how this modern take includes things like this. We also get to see how the general media talks about the rangers. Saba is still present and the rangers are working to bring Zordon back. I like how much this timeline has diverged from the original series. I look forward to more surprises. The rangers' families also come into play in this series. We see Kim's parents. There's also even references to the Go Go series in a mention of Matthew. I haven't read the first Go Go volume yet, but I am excited to learn what's up with Matthew. Finster was always one of my favorite baddies. He's at the forefront of this volume, making things more difficult for the rangers. The 1969 Rangers!!! I wanted MORE! I love the concept of other rangers we don't know about. I wanted to have even more time with these characters. I wanted more personality. I wanted to learn their histories. I'm interested to see how this history comes into play in the next volume. At the end of this volume, there's another story about Squatt and Baboo. This time they're in a world of zords! This is another fun, short comic.This volume may seem like a lot of setup, but it didn't drag for me at all. It was very exciting for me. I give this volume a 5/5. If you haven't read any of these comics, I highly recommend starting with volume 1. Some of the best comics out there!

The flashback issue that shows their first and last mission is easily the highlight of the issues collected here, while Promethea's agenda remains shadowy at best. It's only the constant influx of villains that really puts the Rangers on the back foot so they aren't able to look too closely at their supposed allies.I'm kind of over all the back-up strips now if I'm honest. The Squat and Baboo one collected here isn't particularly funny, and the hyper-stylized art does nothing for me either. Pass.Things are heating up, and it only gets worse/better from here. May the Power protect you, Rangers, because you're gunna need it.

    once more, Kyle Higgins continues to take the already existing cannon of Power Rangers lore, and finds a way to enrich it in such a way that makes everything we as fans understood about the original 3 seasons of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and make it THAT much deeper. I strongly suggest this series for fans of MMPR.
