Discover the Dangers of Drakkon’s Plans Before the ELTARIAN WAR in October 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 4, 2021) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), revealed a first look at POWER RANGERS #12 from writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), artist Francesco Mortarino (Go Go Power Rangers), colorist Raúl Angulo (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) with color assistance by Jose Enrique Fernández, and letterer Ed Dukeshire, in conjunction with the Mighty Morphin series, setting the stage for the next epic series event, the ELTARIAN WAR, in October 2021!
As the Empyreals carry out their final task before the war is fully underway, the Rangers fight to survive the aftermath of their destruction on an alien planet.
