The expertly cast "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" reboot movie from Lionsgate won't be in theaters for another two years -- so what's a oldschool Power Rangers fanatic to do in the meantime? You could just binge watch all your favorite episodes from the '90s another hundred times, or you could check out a brand new story with Jason, Zack, Trini, Kimberly and Billy that's hitting comic book stands next Wednesday, January 13.
A standalone story that marks the beginning of an ongoing series by Kyle Higgins and artist Hendry Prasetya, "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" from BOOM! Studios follows Tommy, the infamous Green Ranger, as he tries to escape the influence of the evil Rita Repulsa and join together with the rest of the Rangers to stop her. Check out MTV News' exclusive preview of Issue #0 below!
Each issue also comes with an awesome cover that features each of the Rangers' helmets, including a special Dragon Shielded Red Ranger variant:
