Power Rangers Hyperforce is joining BOOM! Studios’ comic book universe!
On the 18th episode of Twitch’s live tabletop RPG, Saban Brands Director of Power Rangers Content, Melissa Flores, announced that the Hyperforce Power Rangers will join the 25-year legacy as part of BOOM! Studios’ Shattered Grid event.
The season’s 19th episode, airing on March 13, 2018, will guest star BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Writer Kyle Higgins and take the Hyperforce team into the Shattered Grid.
Power Rangers: Shattered Grid will span across issues of BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers comics, and two special one-shot spinoffs. The story line will follow Lord Drakkon – who’s returned with a newly reformed deadly army that threatens the existence of every Power Ranger ever. In order to combat the threat, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will join forces with popular faces and teams from all across the franchise’s 25-year history in an event like never seen before.
The event kicks off later this month.
In addition to joining the Shattered Grid storyline, Power Rangers Hyperforce will receive their own special variant cover for Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers Issue #8, releasing later this month. The variant cover, designed by Joana Lafuente, will be exclusive to Wondercon 2018 and can be seen below.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Power Rangers Hyperforce will also have an expansive presence at Wondercon, the annual comic book convention taking place in Anaheim, California from March 23-25, 2018.
On Saturday, March 24, convention attendees can attend an onsite panel dedicated to BOOM! Studios’ Shattered Grid event, which promises to feature more exciting surprises and juicy reveals. Featuring Melissa Flores and Higgins, more details on the panel will be revealed soon.

Under the leadership of their mentor, Jen Scott, and with the show’s Game Master, Malika Lim, the newly minted Rangers will cross both time and space to complete their mission while running into many familiar eras (and faces) along the way.
