As announced at ComicsPRO, Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1 will once again shine a light on the Kimberly Hart from Lord Drakkon’s universe. The new one-shot form BOOM! Studios, under license from Hasbro is written by Ryan Parrott and illustrated by Dan Mora. Due out in June 2020, it follows the villain turned fan favorite hero as she makes a choice that sets the stage for an epic event with reverberations throughout the universe.
The Ranger Slayer – AKA Kimberly Hart, the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger from the alternate universe once ruled by Lord Dakkon – returns home and nothing is like she expected. In a world that only knows her as a villain, can Kimberly show her universe that she’s become a hero…and is that even the right thing to do? Confronted by an old foe in a terrifying new form and finding her home in chaos, Kimberly will make a stunning choice that no Power Rangers fan can miss.
It’s been pretty cool to see how this character has grown and evolved since her introduction. She played a big part in Shattered Grid and then Beyond the Grid, so I’m eager to see what the creative team has in store for her next.
