    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder Dec 29, 2021

    Out of all of the Power Ranger titles, this one's probably going to appeal particularly to the already enfranchised and specifically to those who are explicitly familiar with the Phantom Ranger. Andelfinger and Ragazzoni do a great job bringing the story to life, but this is a bit of a deep dive with a lot of moving pieces, but if you're into it, you're gonna be really into it.

    GWW - Nick Friar Dec 29, 2021

    As for the art, Simone Ragazzoni and Mattia Iacono's work is top-notch. The art has a similar vibe to Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers, but Ragazzoni's linework is still unique in its own right. Excited to see what he does moving forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Dec 29, 2021

    I'm always interested in exploring the origins of classic Power Rangers characters and delving deep into the lore. However, this issue spends far too much time with a bunch of new faces that I found myself feeling a bit lost. This will surely read better when I can fully digest all 6 issues, but issue #1 didn't grip me like I was hoping it would. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 3, 2022

    The back story of the only Ranger whose identity was never revealed (thanks to budget woes) looks to be something much bigger and more complex, with well-done art pulling it all together. Read Full Review

    I might give it a reread and reconsider my rating, but the first time through this story was very convoluted and difficult to follow. Disclaimer, I’m also not very well versed in the Power Rangers universe aside from the original television series and the current Mighty Morphin’ and Power Rangers comics, so maybe there’s some baseline history I’m missing that would help me understand this story better?

    This is connected to the series beyond my understanding. If I hadn't read a misleading claim it was tied to the Eltarian war storyline I would have passed altogether. I don't recognize anyone and the references are to the titles I never saw. Altogether a pretty bland book. I only recommend it to fans of the whole franchise, not to strictly old school ones.
