Fletcher, Thompson And Di Nicuolo Take Kimberly Solo In ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink’
Let me tell you, friends and neighbors, I woke up this morning with a little extra spring in my step. The air smelled a little cleaner, birds sang a little sweeter, and everything seemed just a little bit better, and I wasn't quite sure why until I saw the latest announcement about the Power Rangers comics.
It seems that the launch of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was so successful that Boom Studios is following it up with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, a solo miniseries starring Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, co-written by Brenden Fletcher of Gotham Academy and Batgirl, and Kelly Thompson of Jem and the Holograms, with art by Mirror's Edge: Exordium's Daniele Di Nicuolo, and covers by Elsa Charretier and Marguerite Sauvage.
If you're not familiar with Kimberly in her role as the Pink Ranger, well, we've got an entire series of articles that can help with that. For the impatient, though, the basics are that she's a fashionable, popular gymnast with an interest in environmentalism and conservation, and who also fights the forces of evil with a magic bow and a giant robot pterodactyl.
While details about the plot of the series have yet to be revealed, I reached out to Kelly Thompson for a comment:
I was pumped to pitch for Power Rangers: Pink from the outset, but when it turned out they wanted Brenden and I to team up for the project I was ecstatic. He's one of my favorite people in comics and we're very in sync about the kind of stories we want to tell. The biggest problem so far is staying on task and getting our work done --- I half expect Boom to burst into some of our calls and tell us it's lights out in 10 minutes and to do our work and stop giggling. We're having a lot of fun so far and I hope that will all seep into Kimberly's story.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink debuts in May from Boom Studios.
