‘Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers’ #51 review

What could have felt like a retread instead feels like catching up with an old friend.

In writer Ryan Parrott’s latest arc of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, an old enemy returns. However, with a change in dynamic, the Rangers find themselves coming to grips with an enemy beyond their initial scope. In constantly remixing hallmark character beats from the original ’90s show, readers are treated with something that is both old and new all at once. In keeping with itself, the book allows for thee moments of odd familiarity, but with a new context that never allows it to simply just be a re-tread. Instead, it feels like you’re catching up with an old friend.  

The artwork by Moises Hidalgo has been quite unique throughout this issue, with a vibrant, kinetic energy that propels readers onward each panel. While easing readers into the book, he consistently adds these flares to the background that make for remarkable layouts of locations and bring proper character to set up the next scene.

Colorist Walter Baiamonte, with assistance from Katia Ranalli, bring a new sheen to this book. The way they blend the colors to compound atop themselves and give this flow into each scene is particularly impressive. It offers itself in a new form of coloring that properly enlightens us to visuals that are layered in cool. 

Moreover, Shawn Lee’s lettering always provides a simple, splendid pop, giving each character their own set voice that never overshadows one another. Everything blends and weaves in so well that it is a true delight to read. 

Overall, this series continues on its merry way to give readers a treat each time. All of the plot has allowed for a cool new revitalization of this series. I’m excited for what’s next.

Cool plot.
Kinetic art.
Compounded colors.
Nice lettering.
Really treading water in terms of using the dark rangers.
It's clearly set up, and the team looks to be competently adjusting themselves to rev up the engines once more.
