Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers – Rangers Forever #1

Written by: Ryan Parrott

Illustrated by: Eleonora Carlini & Francesco Martarino

Colors by: Raul Angulo & Katherine Lobo

Letters by: Ed Dukeshire

Synopsis: The epic conclusion as The Power Rangers face off against Alpha 1 and the reveal of Rita’s true plan; a familiar newcomer whose arrival in Angel Grove will change everything.

The artwork I really love. Its super fun and vibrant. The character designs are cartoony as well as a bit of manga style squeezed in.

There are a plethora of emotions weaving in and out of these stories, from humor to cringe-worthy awkwardness to deep sadness. I personally relate to some of these stories quite a bit.

The artwork leaves a bit to be desired. It’s not my favorite art...
