IDW, under license by Toho International and in partnership with BOOM! Studios and Hasbro, has announced a five-issue comic book event, “Godzilla Vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” bringing together the two franchises for the first time.
Launching in March, this monthly miniseries is a collaboration between writer Cullen Bunn (“Deadpool,” “Green Lantern,” “Godzilla: Cataclysm”) and artist Freddie Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-Man/ThunderCats).
“We couldn’t be more thrilled about this latest crossover event at IDW Publishing,” says Tom Waltz, editor, IDW Publishing. “Not just because a story featuring both Godzilla and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers checks off every awesome box on a comic-book crossover list, but also because we’ve got two of the best in the business – Cullen Bunn and Freddie Williams II –combining to bring it into being.”
“When BOOM! Studios first stepped into the world of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, we had some big plans and huge dreams, so it’s amazing to be able to bring to life the biggest and most exciting monster mash-up of the century,” says Dafna Pleban, senior editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s been an incredible process to put together this epic series with our friends at IDW, Toho, and Hasbro. We can’t wait to show fans everything they could ever hope to see and more from the King of the Monsters and the Power Rangers universe.”
“Godzilla Vs. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1” will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans, including cover A by series artist Freddie Williams II, Cover B by E.J. Su (Transformers) and a special connecting Retailer Incentive edition by Williams II, which combines with the RI covers for issues No. 2 to 5 to make a panorama of kaiju and Zord conflict.
