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.

So the story here is apparently a conclusion to a previous storyline. The reader is thrown into the middle of a large battle. The story is easy to follow but kind of goes off into random directions after the battle is over, to me personally it sort of feels like they just jammed two separate stories into one book.

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.

I wish the story ...

THIS LOVE SO BRIEF

Written and Illustrated by FRED CHAO

SYNOPSIS: Comics creator Fred Chao put together a small collection of humorous short stories from his love life. Starting off as comical reflections of elementary school crushes, house party hook-ups, and first relationships, these stories delve into themes of the responsibilities that come with age, inevitable life changes, nostalgia, and home. – COMIXOLOGY

This book is a collection of 5 short stories dealing with the authors various bloopers and blunders in his love life. 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...

EDITING BY: WYNDI GAYLE

SYNOPSIS: A MAN HAS EMERGED FROM A CASKET ON A DISTANT PLANET, WITH NO PAST, AND NO FUTURE. WHO WILL HE SAVE? WHO WILL HE KILL?

STORY: A MAN WAKES UP FROM A CASKET ON A DISTANT PLANET, FINDS OUT SOMETHINGS ABOUT HIMSELF THAT CHANGES HIS VIEWS AND THEN HAS TO FEND OFF GIANT MUTANTS THAT ARE ATTACKING THE SHIP. THE WRITTING FLOWS WELL, THERE ARE CERTAIN PARTS WHERE MYSELF AS THE READER GOT A BIT LOST BUT IT QUICKLY GOT BACK ON TRACK WITHOUT MUCH. THERE ARE ALSO A FEW JOKES THAT TEND TO FALL A BIT FLAT IN MY OPINION. OVERALL I ENJOYED THE CONCEPT AND STORYLINE HERE AND HOPE TO SEE IT CONTINUE.

Art by: Edu Menna

Colors by: Jorge Sutil

But there is much peril on the way and the only ones who can help him are KISS! – Comixology

The Story: I must say I am not a Kiss fan so I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book, that being said the members of KISS aren’t actually in this issue except a quick appearance toward the end. The name”Kiss: The End” to me has a bit of unfortunate innuendo that I don’t think the creators were intending...
