Alpha One is back for revenge this June in BOOM! Studios' "Saban's Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers" #1

It’s a question I never thought to ask, but it just hit me: in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, if there’s an Alpha Five, does that mean there were Alphas One through Four?

This June, we’ll find out, as Alpha One returns on a quest for revenge against Zordon in Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers one-shot special. The BOOM! Studios special will see the Rangers confront an unexpected enemy, causing them to dig deep within themselves to see how far they need to go to save the world. Pretty heavy stuff, but perfectly fitting within the world-building that’s been going on in Power Rangers comics over the past few years.

SABAN’S GO GO POWER RANGERS: FOREVER RANGERS #1 from BOOM! Studios

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 22, 2019) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced SABAN’S GO GO POWER RANGERS: FOREVER RANGERS #1, a brand new oversized special from writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and artists Eleonora Carlini (Batgirl) and Francesco Mortarino (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) available in June 2019.

Is this the end? Alpha One is bent on revenge against Zordon, his creator, and willing to destroy anyone who may stand in his way, including the Power Rangers!  They summon every last bit of morphin power they’ve got to halt the deranged robot on his path of destruction and death. But when it looks as though their combined strength might not be enough to stop the murderous and hyper-charged Alpha One from laying waste to Angel Grove, the Power Rangers must reach deep and ask themselves just how far they are willing to go to save Zordon, Angel Grove, and the rest of humanity from Alpha One’s plans.

SABAN’S GO GO POWER RANGERS: FOREVER RANGERS #1 features a main cover by Dan Mora (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Once & Future), along with variant covers by acclaimed artist Kris Anka (Runaways, Captain Marvel) and fan favorite Gurihiru (The Unstoppable Wasp, Gwenpool). 

“Alpha One represents such an interesting existential threat to the Power Rangers and Zordon. Alpha One was once like them, committed to the cause, and fighting him becomes its own kind of tragedy,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “In the biggest issue of
SABAN’S GO GO POWER RANGERS ever, Ryan and Eleonora push the Power Rangers past their limits!”

Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on June 19.
