BOOM! Studios has officially announced a new three-issue limited series titled Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn, which stars none other than the World of the Coinless’ Kimberly Hart herself, the Ranger Slayer.
Arriving in August from the creative team of writer Anthony Burch and artist Simone Ragazzoni, Drakkon New Dawn spins out of the events of BOOM!’s upcoming one-shot Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, which was originally slated to arrive on June 3, but (according to PREVIEWSworld) is now slated to arrive one week later on June 10. According to BOOM!, following the “shocking events” of the Ranger Slayer one-shot, Drakkon New Dawn rejoins the fan-favorite alternate version of the original Pink Ranger as she fights against the “deadly secrets” of her former master, Lord Drakkon.
In Drakkon New Dawn, the Ranger Slayer is “determined to purge the terrifying hold that Drakkon has had over her world.” More specifically, the villain turned hero has her sights set on Deadlock, the tower where Drakkon imprisoned all those who opposed him. What Kimberly is unaware of, however, is the true power that resides within the prison tower. In trying to uncover the worst of Drakkon’s secrets, the Ranger Slayer accidentally sets her former master’s final plan into motion — a plan that will “pit her against a fan-favorite Power Rangers villain like you’ve never seen them before!”
Said Burch, “I’m extremely excited to spend time in the Power Rangers universe, especially in the Coinless timeline of Lord Drakkon! I hope fans are excited about this slightly darker, more apocalyptic tale starring some of our favorite new characters… and maybe a few returning old ones.”
“I can’t tell you how excited I am for Drakkon New Dawn!” added Ragazzoni. “When I was a child, watching Power Rangers was the highlight of every Sunday morning so being the one who will bring them to life in this series is a huge honor. Action, fights, monsters, heroes in costumes and an extremely talented team: what else could I ask for?”
BOOM! Studios Senior Editor Dafna Pleban explains, ” Kimberly must return home to face the fallout from her Ranger Slayer days but even she couldn’t have been prepared for the consequences of digging into Drakkon’s darkest secrets. In Drakkon New Dawn, Anthony and Simone place our heroine in a situation where she’ll have to face enemies new and old, as well as a heartbreaking choice when confronted with the unthinkable!”
Written by Anthony Burch and illustrated by Simone Ragazzoni, Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn #1 is slated to go on sale in print this August from BOOM! Studios.
