"We've spent several years building out the Power Rangers comic book universe and continuing the adventures of the Omega Rangers gives us a chance to fully explore it beyond the confines of the show," says Parrott in the series announcement. "Not only can we add more heroes and villains but we can also bring in elements from future seasons viewed through the lens of familiar characters. It's very exciting to explore new corners of the Power Rangers universe that fans have always imagined - and also never expected!"
Power Rangers will pit the Omega Rangers against a mysterious cosmic menace with the help of an unexpected ally – the villainous Lord Drakkon, whose true intentions remain unknown.
"Lord Drakkon is back but will he save the Power Rangers...or does he have a darker plan in mind?" asks Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, Boom! Studios. "Introducing the Omega Rangers allowed us to reveal a huge piece of Power Rangers history - and Power Rangers #1 answer questions you never thought to ask!"(opens in new tab)
