It’s time to get shell shocked – again!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are teaming up with the Power Rangers once again. This time, it’ll be in a brand new comic book story from BOOM! Studios.
In this story, the Green Ranger is teaming up with the evil Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. To stop them, the remaining five Mighty Morphin Power Rangers must team up with the Ninja Turtles to save all of New York City.
Check out the official description below for the five-part comic series that kicks off in December with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1.
The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver – AKA The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger – but soon discover he’s joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan! As the Rangers are sent reeling by this betrayal, they’re confronted by another (fr)enemy – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Can these heroes find a way to work together to defeat the bad guys and save the world from total destruction?!
The two iconic pop culture factions will meet for the first time since the Ninja Turtles appeared on the fourth episode of Power Rangers In Space, titled ‘Shell Shocked’, in 1998.
The brand new story will be written by Ryan Parrott, who’s also writing Power Rangers’ Necessary Evil storyline that encompasses BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers comic book series. Artwork will be designed by Simone Di Meo, who worked on Power Rangers’ Beyond The Grid comic book storyline.
“Honestly, I’m pretty certain keeping this project a secret has taken years off my life. These two iconic franchises were my TV parents, each teaching me valuable life lessons thirty minutes at a time. The Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles are too insanely awesome not to bring together. I mean, they’re both color-coded teenage martial artists who fight monsters! It just makes too much sense! A huge thank you to Hasbro and Nickelodeon for letting me play with so many of their wonderful toys, as it is truly an honor to be a part of such an exciting crossover. I’m the luckiest kid in the world, and I cannot wait for you all to see what we’ve been putting together.” – Ryan Parrott, Writer
Additional artwork and variant covers from fan-favorite artists such as Goni Montes will be revealed at a later date.
Fans can expect to hear more about this brand new team-up at San Diego Comic Con, which takes place July 17-21, 2019.
