ICYMI Power Rangers / Justice League Comicbook Crossover Set for 2017
The big names for 2017 franchise cinemas will also crossover in comic book format with the announcement of a Power Rangers/Justice League comic book from BOOM Studios and DC Comics.
This crossover will be written by Tom Taylor (Injustice, Thunderbolts) and will feature the interior artwork of Stephen Byrne (Justice League of America Rebirth: The Ray).
Here’s the press release (or at least part of it anyway)
On January 11, two of comics’ greatest teams will combine their powers and abilities for the first time! The Justice League—Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern John Stewart, the Flash and Cyborg—meet Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in a six-issue monthly miniseries from New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor (INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, GREEN LANTERN CORPS: EDGE OF OBLIVION) and artist Stephen Byrne (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA REBIRTH: THE RAY).
Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove when the Power Rangers’ Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged! Zack the Black Ranger is flung into an alternate universe full of citizens possessing outrageous powers and wearing strange costumes. Will Jason the Red Ranger, Trini the Yellow Ranger, Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Billy the Blue Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger be able to get to Zack in time to save him from Batman?
In addition to the standard covers drawn by Karl Kerschl (GOTHAM ACADEMY: SECOND SEMESTER), each issue will feature a variant cover drawn by one of comics’ most popular artists, pairing each member of the League with a different Power Ranger:
Batman/Pink Ranger by Dan Hipp Cyborg/Blue Ranger by Dustin Nguyen The Flash/Black Ranger by Yasmine Putri Green Lantern John Stewart/Yellow Ranger by Marguerite Sauvage Superman/Green Ranger by Chris Sprouse Wonder Woman/Red Ranger by Marcus To
I don’t know about you but I’m pretty interested in seeing this. This looks like those interesting and left-field team up stories. Plus I wonder how they’ll integrate the appearance of the Megazord and the DragonZord while fighting side-by-side with the Justice League. I mean have you see how the League fights a giant villain? It’s pretty impressive.
Power Rangers/ Justice League will be hitting stores January 2017 from BOOM! Studios and DC Comics.
