Get ready to go go “Back to School” with the Power Rangers in a new one-shot special
Summer’s winding down, and you know what that means: vacations are over, the temperature will (hopefully) get cooler, and kids are going back to school. Even those teens with attitude the Power Rangers have to return to their scholarly pursuits, which is a major buzzkill when you spend your off time riding around in a robot dinosaur that can punch giant monsters.
To make the return to school more tolerable, BOOM! Studios have announced a one-shot special titled Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers: Back to School #1. With an all-star creative team of Marguerite Bennett, Jim Towe, Derek Charm, Jordan Gibson, Xiao Tong Kong, and Ilaria Catalani, the special sees the Rangers embark on spring break (strange timing, but into it) all while they get used to their newly acquired Power Coins. Check out a first look at the issue below, including some pretty rad variant covers.
