BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands has announced the upcoming release of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon, an all-new graphic novel that reveals an untold chapter in the life of the legendary original Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver.
The OGN is written by Kyle Higgins, with art by Giuseppe Cafaro. Additionally, Jason David Frank, who played Tommy on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series is consulting on the project.
It’s been a long time since Tommy Oliver has served as a Power Ranger. He’s defeated space witches, brought down evil armies, protected the galaxy, but now Tommy leaves protecting the world to the Power Rangers at Space Patrol Delta. But when his son goes missing, it’s up to Tommy to discover a secret in his past, in order to save his future. Now Tommy will call on all his training, his friends, and maybe even some of his enemies as he sets out on his most important mission: find his son and bring him home.
“It’s rare that we’re able to tell stories about pop culture heroes at this critical juncture in their lives—and there’s few who’ve been as big a pop culture phenomenon as Tommy Oliver,” said Kyle Higgins. “As a fan of the original sixth Ranger, it’s an incredible honor for me to explore this untold chapter of Tommy Oliver: Power Ranger.”
“Tommy Oliver has been part of the Power Rangers for the past 25 years,” said Jason David Frank. “We’ve seen him morph into so many different Power Rangers. Now in MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS: SOUL OF THE DRAGON, we get to see an in-depth story of the life of Tommy Oliver as a Power Ranger and person. We go deeper into the multiple Rangers Tommy has become throughout time- I’m excited for all of you to see how Tommy evolves into the Legendary Power Ranger he is and the legacy he will leave behind forever.”
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon is scheduled to arrive in stores in December 2018.
