BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro has announced the next original graphic novel for Power Rangers with Sins of the Future. Based on a story by Trey Moore, the comic is written by Matthew Erman, illustrated by Giuseppe Cafaro, and lettered by Ed Dukeshire. It follows two of the most popular Power Rangers of all time, showing what happens to them after the events of Power Rangers: Time Force.
Writer Matthew Erman says:
I was once six years old eating malted milk-balls in my pj’s, glued to the television, exclusively watching Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. 25 years later, I’m actually writing Power Rangers, and it is bonkers: a literal dream come true. Power Rangers: Sins of the Future is the story that my six year old self would have wanted to write. Jen Scotts of Power Rangers Time Force takes center stage in this story, and she’s such a deep, interesting character with so much to pull from that writing her and other characters from Time Force has been a real gift. It’s been so wild to play in this sandbox and easy to see why it’s regarded by fans as some of the best the franchise has to offer. I can’t wait for everyone to read this!
Power Rangers: Sins of the Future picks up after the villainous Ransik has been defeated. Pink Ranger Jen Scotts and Red Ranger Wes Collins are starting a real relationship, but they have to figure out a way to do that without sacrificing their commitments to the Silver Guardians and Time Force. This is the ultimate long-distance relationship. When Jen comes back from the future, her and Wes are attacked by a mysterious stranger with dire news: If they stay together, they’ll disrupt the timeline and change the destiny of humanity. The identity of their accuser sets them on a collision course with an unexpected enemy.
Artist Giuseppe Cafaro added:
I’m extremely honored to be the artist for a new Power Rangers graphic novel. BOOM! Studios is doing a huge and amazing job on every single book of the Power Rangers and I’m sure Sins of the Future will be even more fun and intense than ever before!
I haven’t seen Power Rangers: Time Force, but I loved how Jen Scotts was integrated into the comics over the past few years. I really need to check out this season of the show as it’s definitely a fan-favorite. These original graphic novels are a great way to explore the later seasons and build upon the 25+ year history of the franchise.
Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios says:
Power Rangers: Sins of the Future reunites two fan favorites in a love that crosses all of time and space while threatening the very fabric of the universe. For the first time ever, fans will find out what happened to Jen and Wes in this new original graphic novel. And just when you think the Rangers will find their happily ever after, a new threat arises that could end not only their romance but also their realities. It doesn’t get more epic than this!
Power Rangers: Sins of the Future is set for release in October 2020.
