    NEW RANGERSLook, flat out, Higgins and Prasetya get the 10 here for having the courage to do this. They get the 10 for execution. They get the 10 for refusing to settle. They get the 10 because I need more of this original creativity. Thanks for not settling BOOM. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Nov 30, 2016

    ArtworkAs always, impressive detail work on the comic overall, but the battle damage the Dragonzord receives is awe-inspiring and shocking all at the same time. Artist Hendry Prasetyas blend of the artwork between the monsters, the humans, and the robots is in perfect balance with no one aspect falling short of the others. Nothing more can be said, except to hope the art continues to stay at such a fine level of excellence. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ian B Nov 30, 2016

    As a bit of an ending to what was essentially the first major arc of the book, ignoring the previous arc of mostly set up, I thought that this issue delivered in several ways. It’s good to see Billy playing to his strengths of intelligence and critical thinking, all the buildup to the main confrontation with what ends up being the Black Dragon’s shell pays off as the Rangers are forced to use their brains instead of their powers, and it was nice to see the two Rangers who currently are without powers be the ones to really make a difference. I’ve been really enjoying the series so far, and this issue is no exception. From what we saw at the end of this issue, it looks like what is yet to come is just as exciting. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 28, 2016

    Power Rangers #9 is a well paced and smartly written issue that keeps your interest to the very end. On top of that, it all culminates to a cliffhanger that'll get you talking. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 30, 2016

    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 is the issue that solidifies this book more than issues before as a must read. This story has taken us to places we haven't been before, quite literally. This is the place to be if you want a Power Rangers story that knows how to keep you guessing. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Dec 2, 2016

    Overall, we're a bit lost but we feel nostalgic – and that's good enough. We'll tune in monthly just to see a bunch of action involving the Rangers and the Zords, and now they're fighting another Ranger, we'll be hooked before we know it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 1, 2016

    Kyle Higgins and Hendry Prasetya pull off the mighty feat of setting the table for the upcoming third act of this year-long narrative, while also continuing to drive the story forward without letting its momentum slow. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 3, 2016

    Higgins has been telling a great Power Rangers story so far, but as he kicks off his next big storyline, he's started thinking way outside the box. We're about to sail off the edge of the map with this one and I couldn't be more excited. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 30, 2016

    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 is a strong installment, though one can't help but think it could have been stronger. Kyle Higgins dials up the drama to a fever pitch before ultimately taking things in a different direction, resulting in a bit of setup that's as frustrating as it is intriguing. Hendry Presetya makes the most of his pages, but his contribution too falls just short of greatness. With a strong ending hook and even stronger art, this uneven issue is still a worthy read.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 2, 2016

    Conclusion: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers continues to be a great read that goes beyond what the original show ever was. I enjoy where the story line is going and how it is breaking away from the tv show. I would like a little more downtime with the characters so they could be fleshed out more, but with so few pages and a back up story thrown in a can see where this is hard to do. MMPR is a fun book that will draw readers in just for nostalgia purposes but the story and art will keep them coming back because its an all around good comic book. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Josh Long Dec 1, 2016

    I've only read this issue of the Power Rangers series, but it was entertaining and I never felt too out of the loop. Definitely not a self-contained story but keeps a good pace. This may have not been the best jumping on point. So if you're a fan of the series, love the campiness and don't mind picking up some back issues. It's probably gonna be fun ride. 3/5 Read Full Review

    Big Glasgow Comic Page - Liam Pollock Dec 2, 2016

    The problem with this issue is that it, while needed, it serves the poor purpose of being a set-up for the next issue. It is one of those ones where they needed the time and the pages to set everything up for you wanting more, but you know what is coming next is going to be better than the exposition chapter. You need the set-up for the pay-off and this issue certainly leaves you wanting that pay-off. Read Full Review
