BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced at the 14th Annual ComicsPRO, a brand new one-shot special issue POWER RANGERS: RANGER SLAYER #1, from acclaimed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers writer Ryan Parrott and superstar artist Dan Mora (Once and Future, Klaus). This all-new one-shot, available in June 2020, featuring the villain turned fan favorite hero herself as she makes a choice that sets the stage for an epic event that reverberates throughout the universe!
The Ranger Slayer – AKA Kimberly Hart, the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger from the alternate universe once ruled by Lord Dakkon - returns home and nothing is like she expected. In a world that only knows her as a villain, can Kimberly show her universe that she’s become a hero...and is that even the right thing to do? Confronted by an old foe in a terrifying new form and finding her home in chaos, Kimberly will make a stunning choice that no Power Rangers fan can miss.
