We still have a couple of months until we get to see if the big screen Power Rangers reboot is actually any good, but whatever we think of the story, we won’t have to wait long to find out what happens next.
IGN reports Boom! Studios has announced plans for a 96-page graphic novel titled Power Rangers: Aftershock, which picks up immediately after the end of the film. Power Rangers opens March 24, 2017, and the comic hits a week later on March 29. The comic sequel is being written by Ryan Parrott (Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, Batman: Gates of Gotham) with art by Lucas Werneck.
No word on this plot, which isn’t much of a surprise, considering the film itself is still a mystery. If nothing else, it’s nice to know we’ll have another adventure ready to roll (assuming the movie isn’t terrible). The first trailer for the reboot certainly looked interesting, and director Dean Israelite’s previous film Project Almanac wasn’t terrible. Plus, Elizabeth Banks’ version of Rita Repulsa looks fantastically ridiculous. So, if it’s a train wreck, maybe it’ll at least be a fun train wreck.
