Boom! Studios has surprised fans in celebration of the Power Ranger’s 30th anniversary, with a Direct Reserve Campaign. The Kickstarter campaign includes the full range of comics from the Power Rangers series, which range from Deluxe Hardcopies to 30th Anniversary merchandise. This is a huge opportunity to collect the fantastic first five years of BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. The campaign also reveals brand-new items that supporters can obtain in specific tiers, with various perks included for higher contributions.
Boom! Studios first started the Power Rangers comic series in 2016 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #0. Since it began, over 100 issues have been created for the series and have expanded the story of the original team. Spin-offs were also released as part of the storyline including the prequel series, Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers. During the 25th anniversary of the franchise, Boom! Studios released the Shattered Grid arc, which allowed for the use of various Ranger teams without abiding by the timeline.
Since it started, various creators have contributed to the story and fantastic art featured in the stories released by Boom! Studios. This includes writers including Kyle Higgins, Ryan Parrott, and Brenden Fletcher, and artists such as Hendry Prasetya, Dan Mora, and Daniele Di Nicuolo. Melissa Flores and Simona Di Gianfelce have been continuing the series since July 2022 and many iconic exclusive additions have been featured in the comics since it began. Even more, content has been teased as new upcoming releases, including Ranger Academy releasing in April this year.
The Revealed Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration
The 30th Anniversary of Power Rangers is being celebrated by Boom! Studios with a new lineup of releases as part of the Boom! Direct Reserve. The campaign has a range of upcoming releases including a Deluxe Hardcovers set, new commemorative comic books, and even merchandise for Power Rangers 30. The six one-page releases of the first comics will also make a return as a set, with the reprinting featuring a deluxe “Megazord” size for the first time. The amazing art from the comics will also be featured as new display releases such as creations from Goñi Montes and Dan Mora.
As an extra surprise, Boom! Studios will also be releasing a Power Rangers 30 Angel Grove Letterman Jacket, featuring the iconic crimson and white color scheme and insignia of Angel Grove High School.
The Deluxe Hardcovers set features comics that contain the 30 years of content released for the franchise. Power Rangers Archive Book One features the earliest comics of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers originally published by Hamilton Comics and Marvel Comics. Power Rangers Archive Book Two will feature remasters of comics from different seasons including Zeo to Megaforce teams, along with more classic Mighty Morphin tales, originally published by Image Comics, Acclaim/Valiant Comics, and Papercutz. Finally, Power Rangers: Lost Chronicles Book One will feature all of the standalone graphic novels published by BOOM! Studios.
There are so many awesome releases that are part of this Direct Reserve campaign and already the highest tier has been completely sold out. These items will be hard to pass as collectors will go wild to obtain all these epic releases that celebrate the 30 years of the beloved Ranger franchise. The jacket is an item that fans likely never expected to see as a possibility and the item Wishlist seems to be clustered. Although the goal threshold has already surpassed many stretch goals, there are still many reveals and additions to unlock before the campaign finishes. It will be exciting to see what the fandom release if the contributions keep rising.
The Powers Rangers: A 30th Anniversary Comic Book Celebration campaign will continue to run until Thu, April 27, 2023, at 1:10 PM PT. The Slipcase and Signed editions of all three Power Rangers 30 Deluxe Hardcovers, along with the Collectible Box, the Angel Grove Letterman Jacket, the Day One Bonus Item, and unlocked Stretch Goal rewards will all be completely exclusive to BOOM! Direct Reserve customers. Some tiers will include a backer limit and will be unavailable once all spots are taken.
