Power Rangers fans, we are on the verge of seeing a morphinomenal family reunion on the pages of the latest comics for Boom Studios.
We have the original Pink Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson, to proudly thank for that. She’s making it her own personal mission to make it happen.

Actor, director and writer Amy Jo Johnson revealed at a panel at this year’s Emerald City Comic Con that she will write a Power Rangers comic book with her boyfriend.
This Is Not Her First Rodeo
If you grew up loving Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, there’s more than a good chance that you already know who Amy Jo Johnson is, you probably had a crush on her too. She’s best known as Kimberly Hart, or the Mighty Morphin Pink Ranger from the original series.
This isn’t the first time she was involved with BOOM! Studios for a comic book about the beloved franchise. As some of you may know, she previously wrote the introduction for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, which is a spin-off about Kimberly thrust into Pink Ranger duty while she was away at the Panglobal games.
The comic will be published by BOOM! Studios, the official publisher of the ongoing comic book series based on the franchise. Johnson stated that it will be a “family reunion” type of story in which the original Mighty Morphin kids are now in their mid-40s. Other details such as the artist and the release date are yet to be announced.
Power Rangers’ Successful Comic Book Run
Power Rangers has been taking massive steps in the world of comics lately. Boom Studios has seen major success with their various spin-off comic book series: such as Shattered Grid, Go Go Power Rangers, Mighty Morphin, and Power Rangers. The exciting Eltarian War is going on at the moment, you’re more than welcome to check that out, be sure to check out the upcoming, highly anticipated Universe, where we will finally discover the true identity of the mysterious Phantom Ranger.
Can We see this turn into Netflix Adaptation?
Jonathan Entwhistle is developing numerous films and series based on the series for Netflix. I’d like to think that Hasbro’s EOne intends on adapting elements or storylines from the comics to their upcoming Power Rangers productions in a manner similar to how the Morphin Masters were reintroduced in Power Rangers Dino Fury. If we’re lucky, we just might see Amy Jo Johnson’s comic turn into a show or movie.
