Review: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Annual 2017

Inside we are treated to five tales spanning the MMPR universe including the heroes and villains we know and love. I’ll not spoil any of them but I will give a quick synopsis of each story so you know what you’ll be getting.

The origin story of Rita’s master monster maker is revealed as we see Finster on his home world and how he first met the sorceress of dark magic herself Rita Repulsa.

Sabrina’s Day Out

When Scorpina and Goldar are sent on a covert mission to learn more about the Rangers they decide to have a day out at a carnival and treat themselves to some well earned fun.

For my 200th review I couldn’t of gotten a better book, I’ve been a fan of this title from the start and there hasn’t been a bad issue and this is no exception, with only the first story having anything to do with what’s happening in the main title if you wanted you could skip it. But that would be a mistake because these stories are fun, interesting and even a little dark.

When it comes to annuals these days they’re not usually part of the ongoing story they just exist to get us to buy more comics, ideally an annual should be a jumping on point for new reading to get up to date on what has happen in the past year of the title. But that said this is a solid five star book.

Do you agree with my review or think I couldn’t be more wrong?
