Before we begin this review, I would like to thank IDW Publishing and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this title.
The Power Rangers have fought their fair share of Aliens and Monsters over the years, but what happens when they come across the King of the Monsters? Godzilla Vs The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers brings readers a tale filled with thrills, suspense, and plenty of chaotic mayhem as Godzilla takes on the Megazord and anyone who stands in his way!
The Evil Sorceress, Rita Repulsa, has gotten her hands on an ancient artifact to transfer her to a universe without the Power Rangers. Suddenly, she found herself in the presence of a race of Alien Conquerors called Xiliens, Kaiju, and Godzilla! Rita prepares to unleash her creatures into battle, hoping to annihilate her new foe. But she never expected that the Power Rangers would follow her to this alternate reality, pitting the Dinozords themselves head-to-head with the King of the Monsters.
Writer Cullen Bunn teams up with the artistic team of Freddie E. Williams II and Andrew Dalhouse for an out-of-this-world experience. Bunn delivers a story that is fit to be a perfect Saturday Morning Crossover event, but I would like to point out that this is a Non-Canon story. Meaning it isn’t following the current continuity from Boom! Studios MMPR line, which isn’t a big deal.
As for artwork, Freddie E. Williams II is one of the best artists in the industry, his eye for detail is incredible. He can capture the best of both franchises with his pencil work. His take on the Power Rangers is incredibly dynamic, plus Williams can create a great sense of scale when it comes to Kaiju Battles. One of the biggest examples would have to be when Tommy summons the Dragonzord for a one-on-one brawl with Godzilla.
Andrew Dalhouse was incredible in this story as well, bringing a dynamic sense of vibrant colors when it comes to showcasing The Power Rangers, similar to Superhero Comics, which was full of great effects. Then we shift it to Godzilla’s Universe. The colors are muted, and much more subtle, which invokes a style similarly seen in earlier films until when the rangers showed up, assuming Godzilla was another creation of Rita Repulsa (which got a good chuckle from me).
Godzilla Vs. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be available on November 9th at your Local Comic Book Shop, Book Stores, and Digitally.
