    This is everything a Ranger Slayer fan could want in a solo adventure, and the only disappointing part about it is that it had to end. Read Full Review

    I cannot stress how wonderful of a story this is, for established fans of the series and newcomers alike. Elements of what made the TV series such a joy to watch and what makes the BOOM! Comics so relatable run deep in the veins of this story, if you’re a fan of the Power Rangers in any form you NEED to pick this issue up. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 22, 2020

    Through the events of Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, we are now witnessing a hero on the rise. Well, a hero who was ready to redeem herself for a past of betrayal serving Lord Drakkon. The best takeaway from this story was seeing that there is a long-term plan for everything in these Power Rangers books. No one gets left behind, and this was the perfect way to make that statement.

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jul 21, 2020

    If you are a Power Rangers fan you absolutely need to buy this. I will go out on a limb and say even if you don't care about Power Rangers you could still read and enjoy this. I don't really care much about the “franchise” of Power Rangers but this issue made me want more! I know they recently announced some new ongoing Power Rangers books, but this needs to be an ongoing. The story woven within the 42 pages is fantastic and I want more of this universe! I guess some of the highest praise for a one-shot issue is that it tells a captivating, developed story with a solid beginning, middle, and end that leaves you satisfied, but also wishing and hoping for more at the same time.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jul 22, 2020

    Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 is a fantastic one-shot that has me, someone who's not a Power Rangers fan, wanting to read more. There's just a fun ride to it all that's easy to follow but clearly delivers a bit more for those who are long-time fans. It's also a one and done comic that you can pick up and just enjoy while also acting as a follow-up to what was and leading into what's to come. I began the comic not a fan of the Power Rangers and ended wondering what I missed out on and where to start. Read Full Review

    GWW - Nick Friar Jul 22, 2020

    Also helps to have the ever-impressive Dan Mora in charge of art. Other artists have done some impressive work with the Power Rangers, but Mora's interpretations are the first I think of when the BOOM! Studios title comes to mind " and I don't expect that to change. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 25, 2020

    This Ranger Slayer one-shot is the perfect encapsulation of everything great about Ryan Parrott and BOOM! Studios' Power Rangers comics. It's got action, it's got heart, it's got a great use of all these classic and familiar characters, and it can include all of that in a single issue! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Kal Stokes Jul 22, 2020

    The artwork is superb and makes everything seem epic in scope and scale. The writing is a bit clunky in some places, but a standout scene in this issue was the conversation between Trini, Zack, and Kim. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jul 27, 2020

    This is a good comic held back by the fact that the story doesn't really match the marketing. The pink ranger of the Drakkon universe is mostly an observer rather than a main character. Still, the story is solid, the characters are very well-written and I enjoyed the art. Mora's work fits this darker take on the rangers very well, his villains look amazing and his characters are well-drawn and expressive. The lettering throughout the book is incredible. You can really tell that a lot of effort was put into this issue. This is a great follow-up for fans of the "Shattered Grid" Power Rangers story. Read Full Review
