Boom! Studios has announced the upcoming launch of Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn, a three issue limited series from writer Anthony Burch (Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack) and artist Simone Ragazzoni (Odessa) which finds the Ranger Slayer – a.k.a. Kimberly Hart, Drakkon’s mightiest warrior – fighting against the deadly secrets of her former master’s legacy.
“I’m extremely excited to spend time in the Power Rangers universe, especially in the Coinless timeline of Lord Drakkon!” said Burch. “I hope fans are excited about this slightly darker, more apocalyptic tale starring some of our favorite new characters…and maybe a few returning old ones.”
“I can’t tell you how excited I am for Drakkon New Dawn! When I was a child, watching Power Rangers was the highlight of every Sunday morning so being the one who will bring them to life in this series is a huge honor,” said Ragazzoni. “Action, fights, monsters, heroes in costumes, and an extremely talented team: what else could I ask for?”
“Kimberly must return home to face the fallout from her Ranger Slayer days but even she couldn’t have been prepared for the consequences of digging into Drakkon’s darkest secrets,” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “In Drakkon New Dawn, Anthony and Simone place our heroine in a situation where she’ll have to face enemies new and old, as well as a heartbreaking choice when confronted with the unthinkable!”
After the shocking events of Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, Kimberly is determined to purge the terrifying hold that Drakkon has had over her world, starting with Deadlock; the prison tower where Drakkon held all those who opposed him. But even the Ranger Slayer has no clue of the true power kept in Deadlock—and what unlocking the doors will set into motion. As Kimberly investigates the worst of Drakkon’s secrets, she sets in motion Drakkon’s final plan—one that will pit her against a fan-favorite Power Rangers villain like you’ve never seen them before!
