Power Rangers: Shattered Grid WonderCon Panel - News & Revelations!

BOOM! Studios brought POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID to WonderCon 2018, today 2:30 PM PT- 3:30 PM PT room 200B—Lord Drakkon has returned, and after the events of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25, No Ranger Is Safe! Join writers Kyle Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and Ryan Parrott (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers), actor David Yost (“Billy Cranston,”  Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV Series), Dafna Pleban (Editor, BOOM!  Studios), Melissa Flores (Director, Power Rangers Content, Saban Brands) and a special appearance by Paul Schrier (Bulk MMPR, and Jack HyperForce) with promises of this is one panel no Power Rangers Fan is going to want to miss!

GO, GO POWER RANGERS writer Ryan Parrott kicked it off with the revelation that the Ranger Kimberly Hart from Drakkon’s Coinless Universe! We also got a closer look at artist Dan Mora's’s designs for the Ranger Slayer. After the conclusion of SABAN'S GO, GO POWER RANGERS #8 this week left many thinking the Ranger Slayer was holding the Sword of Darkness it was revealed that it was actually  her.... The Bow of Darkness.

This audience member was chosen to read issue MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25 four days early.

To quote Melissa Flores "But wait there's more." Not only did they allow the one lucky fan read the book four day early, they gave everyone at the panel a copy to read today with an exclusive cover! Everyone was then given ten minutes to read the comic! Original Blue Ranger/David Yost made everyone swear not to spoil it by saying “Affirmative!” Fan reaction to POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID was explosive with people gasping and getting emotional.

And that wasn't all folks they also revealed the design image for the Ranger Slayer's Gravezord which is made from all the broken Zords from the Drakkon Coinless Unvierse. The image also serves as a diagram pointing out which Zord is where.

The panel ended with one final tease: The final version of the MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #26 cover is a HUGE spoiler! So some future covers of the comics will be altered from the previously solicited coverss we've seen after MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25!
