If the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover comic didn’t quench your ’90s thirst, maybe the second time will be the charm. BOOM! Studios and IDW Publishing are teaming up again for a sequel to the original 2019 series.
Writer Ryan Parrott is returning for the sequel, while cover artist Dan Mora will now handle interior art as well.
We don’t know much about the plot of the series just yet, but Boom is promising the sequel will outdo even the wackier moments from the original, such as Shredder harnessing the power of the Green Ranger.
“The first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles team up resulted in iconic moments such as the reveal of the Green Ranger Shredder, the Ninja Rangers, and the mighty Turtlezord!” said Senior Editor Dafna Pleban in a press release. “But if you think there’s nothing that could top that, just wait ‘til you see what’s up next for both teams as they face familiar faces and unexpected villains in an adventure full of the new shocking twists and turns!”
In addition to this epic crossover, BOOM! Studios revealed their ambitious plans for the Power Rangers franchise as the monthly series crosses the issue #100 mark. October’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #101 begins a new status quo dubbed “Recharged.” The entire team will be reunited again (ending a period where original Rangers Jason, Trini and Zack starred in their own, separate series), and the unified Rangers will confront new enemies and threats to Angel Grove.

The series will also welcome a new creative team. Writer Melissa Flores is formerly a producer on the TV series, and she’ll be joined by artist Simona Di Gianfelice (All-New Firefly).
“Being able to write Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a literal dream come true, and I can’t stop pinching myself,” said Flores. “The coming issues will feature a wild ride that will aim to honor the incredible history of this iconic series, and push the Rangers to their absolute limits.”
Look for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #101 to hit stores in October 2022, followed by Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #1 in December.
