Horribly Wrong: Kyle Higgins On The Shocking New Character In ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ #9

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9, Boom Studios

When Boom's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series began earlier this year, setting its story in the days after Tommy's arrival as the Green Ranger, it immediately started expanding on what Ranger fans already knew from the show. There were new dynamics in place, new powers for the villains, and even new reveals, such as the fact that Rita Repulsa had approached other characters with the power of the Green Ranger before settling on Tommy. And in the second arc, we got a brand new villain.

Now, at the end of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9, that new villain's identity has been revealed, and it's one of the most unexpected and surprising plot twists that we've seen in a good long while. To find out more about this development, ComicsAlliance spoke to Kyle Higgins about creating this new character alongside artist Hendry Prasetya and designer Jamal Campbell. Read on, but be warned: Major spoilers for this week's issue follow.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Strip Panel Naked: Changing The Medium In ‘Slam’

slam3

There’s an expectation of what comics will be when we pick one up, particularly in the monthly "floppy" format that most of us are reading. At Thought Bubble recently, on the Image Comics panel, a few of the creators were talking about how they were able to play around with the medium a little more, and change expectations of what comics are, especially away from "mainstream" books.

This week, rather than dissect a single storytelling approach in a comic, I want to look at a comic doing something unusual with the form --- the Boom Studios roller derby comic Slam, by Pamela Ribon, Veronica Fish, Brittany Peer, and Jim Campbell.

Give Power To Ladies And Watch Them Kick Butt: Delilah Dawson and Ashley Woods on ‘Ladycastle’

lc_featured

In Boom's upcoming four-issue comic Ladycastle, as you might guess from the name, the women are in charge. But this isn't a utopian feminist world, or at least it didn't start that way. The women are in charge because almost all of the men are dead at the hands of a dragon. With more monsters on the way, the Princess Aeve and a blacksmith named Merinor must take charge.

ComicsAlliance chatted with writer Delilah S. Dawson and artist Ashley A. Woods about their particular take on a kingdom ruled by women, and all of the elements that went into building this very special castle.
