Go Go Power Rangers joins the “Necessary Evil” event this July – and writer Sina Grace is coming along as well. Grace will join series writer Ryan Parrott and artist Francesco Mortarino beginning with July 10’s #21 and delve into what BOOM! Studios calls “the secret history behind the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”.
“Two years ago, I started on Go Go Power Rangers with the goal of crafting a series that placed an emphasis on character and focused as much on teenage relationships as it did on giant monsters. Naturally, when I was offered the chance to write Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, I assumed my time exploring the personal lives of the ‘Teenagers with Attitude’ was over. Thankfully… I was wrong,” said Parrott. “Now, while the current iteration of Go Go Power Rangers is about to draw to a close, an exciting new chapter awaits.”
“I’m thrilled to have the incredible talents of Sina Grace and Francesco Mortarino coming onboard and I promise that Go Go‘s style and sensibilities will remain constant, even as we introduce new and familiar characters, recontextualize iconic series moments and explore bold new areas of the Power Ranger mythology,” Parrott added. “I really hope you all come along for the journey.”
Grace joins Go Go Power Rangers shortly after finishing up Marvel’s Iceman series, and concurrent with the launch of Jughead’s Time Police at Archie Comics. Although this will be Grace’s first Power Rangers ongoing run, he has illustrated variant covers for the franchise in the past – and had a story in the 25th anniversary anthology.
“As a lifelong Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fan, and I’m thrilled to work beside Ryan on one of the most exciting chapters in the Rangers’ history,” said Grace. “Mom, if you’re reading this: thanks for waiting in line before work to get me that Megazord.”
