In addition to the preview page at the official Papercutz site, the publisher has also provided us with a look at five action-oriented pages from the upcoming comic featuring a battle between the rangers' Claw Armor Megazord and a very brainy monster. You can check out the five-page preview of Power Rangers Super Samurai Vol. 1 after the cut.From PaperCutz's official solicitation info:

On a rare day off, the Power Rangers attend a free rock concert dressed as civilians, blending in with the rest of the attendees. Unbeknownst to the Rangers, the evil Master Xandred has been watching them closely, and plans to trap them by turning the crowd of thousands against them. Can the Rangers stop Master Xandred's plot without harming any of their fellow teens?
