Ranger Station Episode 3: Teamwork

Ranger Station Episode 3: Teamwork

With almost 800 episodes over the course of 22 years, the Power Rangers television show is arguably the single most successful live-action superhero franchise of all time, and certainly one of the strangest. Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon. That's why we're looking back with an in-depth guide to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including its source material, Kyuoryu Sentai Zyuranger, in ComicsAlliance's Ranger Station!

This week, the Rangers get their weapons and we have an exclusive as we hear directly from a rather surprising actor who appeared in this actual episode!

Exclusive Preview: Punching Is Always The Best Way To Go In Wood, Ryall And Daniel’s ‘String Divers’

stringdivers-feat

If there's one thing that we're definitely on the record as loving here at ComicsAlliance, it's task forces made up of color-coded heroes --- and it's even better if they all have some sort of specialty. And fortunately for us, we're only a week away from getting a new one in the form of Ashley Wood's String Divers.

Based on a line of action figures from Wood's 3A toys, String Divers follows the adventures of a team that sets out to battle tiny, tiny problems in the "worlds within worlds," apparently by punching them until they are no longer problems. The comic is written by IDW editor Chris Ryall with art by Judge Dredd's Nelson Daniel, and if a premise that sounds like Power Rangers meets Micronauts is something you're into, good news: We've got an exclusive extended preview to check out below!

Celebrating ‘Tintin’ On Creator Hergé’s 107th Birthday! [Art]

herge_bday_FLAT

Though he's hardly a household name here in the United States, even among the majority of comics fans, Hergé is a serious contender for the title of "all-time most influential comic artist". He created the globe-trotting boy reporter Tintin in 1929, and until his death in 1983, spun an ever-expanding saga that found the the intrepid lad and his supporting cast exploring the deep sea, landing on the moon, tangling with a yeti, and doing battle with an endless assortment of thieves, scoundrels, and ne'er-do-wells.

Original Harlan Ellison ‘Star Trek’ Episode Script Gets A Comic Book Miniseries At IDW

The City On The Edge Of Forever Star Trek Harlan Ellison main
IDW

With its dramatic tale of time travel trauma, "City on the Edge of Forever" is widely considered one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek TV series, but what made it to the screen was quite different from sci-fi writer Harlan Ellison's original script, which was too long for a one-hour TV show and had far too many speaking parts for the production budget.

Comics don't have those restrictions, though, so IDW Publishing is taking Ellison's full, original teleplay and adapting it into a comics mini-series, starting in June. It'll be written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, and with interior art by J.K. Woodward. Juan Ortiz will be the artist on the main covers, which give the series a sort of pulp-novel look, while movie poster artist Paul Shipper will be on variant covers. Ellison will serve as a sort of consultant.
