BOOM! Studios and Amy Jo Johnson Give Fans a Prelude Story in the Upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Special
Due to the overwhelming positive reaction to the announcement of the upcoming Amy Jo Johnson penned comic series, BOOM! Studios and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ original Pink Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson, are offering fans a glimpse into her world of the Rangers with an 8-page prelude story, now to be included in the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Special.
The new series was announced as part of the currently active BOOM! Direct Reserve campaign, POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration as it rocketed past the $250,000 Stretch Goal within less than 24 hours of the campaign launch. This new 8-page prelude story comes as the campaign’s $625,000 Stretch Goal.
Details on the hotly anticipated series are being kept under wraps for the time being, but more information will be made available later this year.
Amy Jo Johnson began her acting career as Kimberly Hart, the original Pink Power Ranger. For the next twenty years, she starred in a number of film and television productions, such as Susie Q, Perfect Body, Felicity, and Flashpoint. For the last ten years, she has turned her attention to behind the camera, writing and directing four short films, two feature films, and made her foray into TV directing on the CW’s Superman and Lois. Amy Jo is incredibly excited to reflect back on her time as a Ranger, and this comic book series will be a love letter to her fans and the franchise that gave her her start.
“I want to thank the faithful Power Ranger community for the love and excitement from the announcement of my up-and-coming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series! To kick it off, BOOM! has invited us to write a short story for this summer’s upcoming anthology special, which will introduce our re-imagined world of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! OG style!” said actor, director, and forever our Pink Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson.
BOOM! Studios’ POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration, now broken past the half million dollar mark, and is BOOM! Studios’ fourth campaign to do so and our second to do so this year. Currently, the POWER RANGERS: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration is sitting at $582,620 with the campaign closing at 1:10pm PST on Thursday, April 27, 2023.
