Media Release — BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today revealed a first look at the brand new oversized special issue, POWER RANGERS UNLIMITED: HEIR TO DARKNESS #1, as acclaimed author L.L. McKinney (A Blade So Black), artist Simone Ragazzoni (Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn), colorist Igor Monti (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and letterer Ed Dukeshire (Once & Future) present a powerful new story that no Power Rangers fan can miss in March 2021.
Astronema is one of the most popular Power Rangers villains ever and her true origin is revealed for the first time in a one-shot directly connected to the events of Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers! Before she became a Power Ranger, a young girl named Karone was kidnapped by bounty hunters and brainwashed into the assassin known as Astronema by two of the greatest threats in the galaxy—Dark Specter and Ecliptor. But what is Dark Spector’s true plan. . . and what does it mean for the new Mighty Morphin & Power Rangers teams?
POWER RANGERS UNLIMITED: HEIR TO DARKNESS #1 features main cover art by Dan Mora (Once & Future) and variant cover art by illustrators Jungeun Yoon (Spider-woman), Vincenzo Riccardi (Something is Killing the Children), and Jenny Frison (Wonder Woman).
