    This was a really fun book. I love the fact the BOOM used folks that have worked on Power Ranger books before. They went out and got a huge MMPR fan in Frank Gogol to round out the team and this formula works. There is not a bad panel in this book. Read Full Review

    This story seems to finish what some of the Flashbacks in Go Go Power Rangers told us. It offers a lot more interesting insight into the history of the rangers' oldest foe. It's similar to Astronema in ways, but also different. Master Vile hasn't been seen much in this continuity yet, but like Rita, he's portrayed as a lot less goofy and more sinister. He also seems to have an interesting origin. I'd like to see more about it. I'd also like to see what it was like for Rita as she grew up under Master Vile's influence and why she left him to join Zedd.
    I don't know much about the Phantom Ranger, but it looks like he may be playing a role in the upcoming showdown with the Emperyals. All-in-all this was a real good read. It's always inter more
