Mighty Morphin Power Rangers has been on a stellar run this year, led by Kyle Higgins’ phenomenal writing and Hendry Prasetya’s art. The constant struggle between Rita and the Rangers is a classic tale, and the addition of the mysterious Black Dragon just takes it over the top. Issue #11 continues this trend with some intriguing twists and some much-needed answers about the vicious Lord Draxxon. Plus, Higgins brings about a brand new character that could completely change this story.

While the majority of this series has focused on modern day battles between the Black Dragon and the Power Rangers, issue #11 follows Tommy and Billy as they try to figure out what in the fresh hell is going on. Strange new surroundings and even more peculiar enemies make an eerily familiar world seem completely out of sync and infinitely more dangerous. And to make matters worse, there are some frightening Stormtrooper-esque figures roaming around causing trouble for the heroes. Now if only the other Power Rangers were around to help.

Of course, the rest of the Rangers aren’t simply sitting around waiting for Tommy and Billy to reappear. No, they are searching for the source of the Black Dragon’s power. This quest takes them to the scene of a big battle and some disturbing answers. Unfortunately, the story bounces away before many of the answers are provided, but the scenes do lay the groundwork for some fantastic future moments.

And speaking of fantastic moments, this 11th issue veers a little closer to bizarre with the introduction of Saba. While I can’t provide exact details about this new character, I can say that the potential is great. The brief interactions show that Tommy, Billy, and Saba could have some big moments together if the story plays out a certain way.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is 11 issues in and shows absolutely no sign of slowing down. Higgins’ story is so engaging that you just can’t help but keep reading, and he is a master of the cliffhanger. Plus, he does some wonderful things with both new and old characters that completely makes the universe feel up-to-date–this version of Goldar is fascinating.

The Power Rangers are coming back to the forefront of entertainment with the new movie and two unique comic series. It’s the perfect time to dive back into this world, so go pick up some issues!
