Rita's plan comes to a head and the Green Ranger feels more alienated than ever, leaving the team divided when the Dragonzord attacks!

    I have to admit I get far too excited when the team morphs as the morphing panels are so much fun, something as simple as a half Ranger half Trini panel is a winner in my book. Next issue looks set to be a beat down brawl between the Megazord and the Dragonzord and its gonna be MIGHTY! Read Full Review

    GWW - Dave Pecci May 16, 2016

    Overall, this issue is touching and has more tremendous artwork from Hendry Prasetya. The cover is eye catching and makes this comic an instant collectible and the variant covers aren't to shabby either. A little bit of action and tons of heart-felt moments are a welcomed change in the power rangers series. My only cynical opinion is I think the issue needs to give more time to other characters like Zordon and Zach, which have not given a fair share of panel time yet. I am looking forward to, hopefully longer and more heartfelt, action packed issues! Read Full Review

    MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #3 is another strong entry in a series that just keeps getting better. Kyle Higgins has rooted the story in franchise lore, while at the same time making the material more adult to appeal to non-fans. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 10, 2016

    The stakes are raised and Green Ranger's reliability has never been this unsure now that they need him most! You'll want the next issue after reading this because the villain's story progresses and the team dynamic is shifting violently. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 11, 2016

    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #3 was a tease, but it was also exciting for what this is setting up. The threat has been established, the lines have been drawn in the sand, and now it is time to attack the problem head on. They are wasting no time to show what is fun about the Power Rangers franchise. Read Full Review

    This not only a beautiful comic, but a gut-punching story that makes you want to raise your fist to the sky and shout "it's morphin' time!". Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Christopher Hitchcock May 13, 2016

    Overall, while Issue #03 is a bit on the talkie side, the advancement they make with character development and further insight to Rita's master plan is extremely welcomed. They're going above and beyond to tell a good story here. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker May 11, 2016

    Its immensely satisfying to look at the monthly top-selling comics and see that Power Rangers is doing well. Great books deserve to be supported and this is a truly great book. The entire creative team is doing some of their best work. Get on board the Ranger train before you get left behind. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga May 11, 2016

    Power Rangers #3 continues to bring the story they had laid out so far, with the slight risk of it becoming "The Tommy Oliver Show," I will continue to follow through with this story and look forward to how this creative team will bring it all together. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake May 11, 2016

    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers continues its progression from nostalgia-laden throwback to standalone flagship, Higgins and Prasetya combining Ranger action with strong characterization to great effect. They haven't quite found the successful balance between themes as of yet, with some undercooked characters and a rapidly advanced plot point, but what works, works well, and stands to get even better.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma May 11, 2016

    Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers #3 is a troubled issue, but only if you look at it in the context of its extremely successful brothers and sisters. There are actually a lot of great moments here and nearly every scene is strong and gripping in itself, its just that, as an issue, it lacks a single great moment to pull it all together. The art reflects this struggle as well, being hit or miss during dramatic conversations but remaining beautiful in its depiction of Rangers and Zords and striking overall. Excellent showings from Trini and Goldar and some gorgeous Zord panels help this series immensely, but lack the punch to sell the issue. Not enough happens this month to put it on par with previous issues, but Power Rangers #3 proves that this series' 'weak' issues are still fascinating and rich. Read Full Review
