Power Rangers and Justice League Team Up in Epic Six Part Comic Series
2017 is looking to be a big year for fans of comics and comic book movies. Two of next year’s biggest movie properties, The Power Rangers and DC Comics’ Justice league will be teaming up for a six part comic series. The series is set to be six monthly released issues starting in January 2017.
Comic book publishers DC Comics and Boom! Studios are joining forces to bring these two teams together. The Justice League team will consist of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, and John Stewart/Green Lantern. The Power Rangers will be the classic Red, Black, Pink, Blue, and Yellow Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
In a press release on October 14, Hank Kanalz, Senior Vice President, Editorial Strategy and Administration of DC Entertainment stated:
“DC and BOOM! Studios teaming up on this crossover is a dream come true for fans of Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and the Justice League. Stories like this are a great way to have that ‘what if’ itch scratched, combining favorite characters from different publishers in epic adventures.”
The books are to be written by Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us, Greeen Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion) and Irish artist Stephen Byrne (Justice League of America: The Ray, Serenity). There will be standard covers drawn by Karl Kerschl (Teen Titans: Year One, Gotham Academy) as well as variant covers featuring a member from each team.
