Prepare for the new Putty Patrol in a first look BOOM! Studios’ “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” #42

The Putty Patrollers in Power Rangers are the very definition of cannon fodder: nameless, faceless goons that exist solely to be a thorn in the sides of the heroes, coming at them in waves so the Rangers can dispose of them with some sick karate moves. They have next to no personality other than being kind of charmingly goofy, and while they aren’t anybody’s favorite character, it would be hard to imagine the franchise without them.

In this first look at the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #42, the Putties are much more memorable, but for an entirely different reason: they now bear multiple arms and legs, like some sort of arachnid/Putty crossbred abomination.

In short, the Putties are the new face of horror. You think I’m exaggerating? Check out the preview below and decide for yourself, friend.
