The story arc also introduced an alternate version of many iconic characters including Kimberly Hart as the Ranger Slayer, who was originally placed under an evil spell.

“I got to work in the world of the Power Rangers once before, a short story way back during Shattered Grid, and I’ve wanted back in ever since. And to get to help tell this story? Drakkon assembling a new team of rangers? And the Coinless world is super messed up so the storytelling’s coloring with shades of George Romero and Mad Max? And Moisés Freakin’ Hidalgo? Come on. This is incredible,”Adam Cesare, Writer of Power Rangers Universe: Coinless
“Coming back to work with Power Rangers and Boom! Studios is such a special thing for me. As another Chilean (Pedro Pascal) says ‘This is the way.’ Adam´s scripts are really fantastic, and it’s a joy to draw each page. We are all doing our best work for all fans of the Power Rangers universe,”Moisés Hidalgo, Artist for Power Rangers Universe: Coinless
“Bringing back Adam to write this horror-infused Power Rangers one-shot was a no-brainer. Seeing his vision come to life with the incredible art from Moisés is a treat for every Power Rangers fan, and is a story I’m incredibly proud of,”Editor, Allyson Gronowitz.
This will be a thrilling chapter in the history of Power Rangers as iconic villains take to the spotlight in this one-shot release. The coinless was an amazing apocalyptic dimension that took Power Rangers to a whole new level, beyond the setting seen in Power Rangers RPM. Lord Drakkon and the Ranger Slayer remain to be the most iconic originals from the comic book series created by Boom! Studios, and now fans can finally dive back into the dark world once again.
The Power Rangers Unlimited comic also appears to include other iconic characters and villains that will bring a huge twist to events, including the evil Blue Omega Ranger, and what appears to be alternate versions of Trini, Zack, and Jason with the Ranger Slayer. The use of Dark Specter will also be an iconic addition to the one-shot series, especially since he has been a part of the existence of the Psycho Rangers and the origins of the Ranger Emissaries in Power Rangers Universe. Fans are going to be over-excited to find out what story the team has created, but fans will have the Ranger Academy comic to enjoy while waiting.
Power Rangers Unlimited: The Coinless will be a 40-page one-shot comic released from Boom! Studios, which will release in June 2023. An exact date for the release will be announced soon.
