Two New Series. Two New Teams. A New Beginning For All Power Rangers Is Here!

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 14, 2020) – BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced a brand new series, POWER RANGERS from superstar writer Ryan Parrott (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and acclaimed artist Francesco Mortarino (Firefly: The Sting), launching in conjunction with the brand new Mighty Morphin series. Two New Series. Two New Teams. The Era of UNLIMITED POWER begins HERE—and only Lord Drakkon, their greatest enemy, can save the Power Rangers!

POWER RANGERS #1 reveals a new cosmic threat that only the original Power Rangers, now known as the Omega Rangers – Jason, Trini and Zack – can hope to defeat! But their secret weapon is… the villainous Lord Drakkon?! Zordon forbids the Omega Rangers from contacting Drakkon, so if they want to save the universe then they’ll have to go rogue – and go up against their Mighty Morphin allies.

New York Times bestselling author Ryan Parrott is a comic book and screenwriter based out of Los Angeles. A graduate of Chapman University, Parrott has written for television series NBC’s Revolution and Hulu’s Chance. Parrott is also known for his work on DC Comics’ Batman: Gates of Gotham, IDW’s Star Trek comic book series, including Starfleet Academy, Boldly Go, and Manifest Destiny, Dynamite’s Death to the Army of Darkness, and his creator-owned projects Volition, Oberon, and Dead Day with Aftershock Comics. He is currently the writer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with BOOM! Studios.

“We’ve spent several years building out the Power Rangers comic book universe and continuing the adventures of the Omega Rangers gives us a chance to fully explore it beyond the confines of the show. Not only can we add more heroes and villains but we can also bring in elements from future seasons viewed through the lens of familiar characters,” said Parrott. “It’s very exciting to explore new corners of the Power Rangers universe that fans have always imagined – and also never expected!”

Francesco Mortarino is an Italian cartoonist who graduated from the Comics School of Milano. He started working at Sergio Bonelli Editore on the comic series Nathan Never and made his US comics debut on Jupiter’s Circle for Image Comics, soon working on other projects like Dungeon & Dragons: Evil at Baldur’s Gate for IDW. Mortarino has worked on high profile BOOM! Studios series including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Firefly: Bad Company.

“A year and a half ago, I helped illustrate Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers #33, and now I’m drawing the first issue of the new POWER RANGERS series! I’m very proud to be a part of this new era with Ryan and BOOM! Studios,” said Mortarino. “I know that many readers are waiting to see where the new team’s adventures will take them. As a fan myself, I can’t wait to show everyone exactly what I’ve been working on. It’ll blow your minds!”

Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 27 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the franchise celebrates its 27th season, “Power Rangers Beast Morphers” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.

The hit comic book series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers launched in 2016 at BOOM! Studios, outselling nearly every other comic book in its month of release. The series went on to launch numerous hit spin off series like Go Go Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The series concludes in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #55, on-sale in October, which also features the first appearance of the All New Green Ranger.

“Lord Drakkon is back but will he save the Power Rangers…or does he have a darker plan in mind?” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Introducing the Omega Rangers allowed us to reveal a huge piece of Power Rangers history – and POWER RANGERS #1 answer questions you never thought to ask!”

Fans who attend the BOOM! Studios Mighty Morphin/Power Rangers Panel on July 25, 2020 at 1:00 pm PT on the Comic-Con@Home website will get a very special preview of never-before-seen art as well as behind-the-scenes information about the series and what’s in store for readers! More details at

Humble Summer Adventure Games Bundle launches today to support type 1 diabetes research

Fans of story games won’t want to miss this! The Humble Summer Adventure Games Bundle has just launched with the acclaimed Telltale series The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Batman, along with IGF winners Oxenfree and Heaven’s Vault. The bundle will be available on through July 21:

Humble Summer Adventure Games Bundle

A percentage of all bundle sales will support JDRF, a global nonprofit that funds type 1 diabetes (T1D) research in pursuit of new treatments — and, ultimately, new cures — for an autoimmune disease that affects up to 38M people worldwide.

This cause is personal to Dan Connors, who founded Telltale in 2004 and has a 12-year-old son who lives with T1D. Dan crossed paths with JDRF in 2017 when he selected the charity as one of the beneficiaries of a Humble Bundle that went on to raise over $1.6M. He has since taken on a volunteer lead role with JDRF’s Game2Give initiative, helping to identify fundraising opportunities within the game industry and to build a community of game developers and players with T1D connections.

“Since COVID-19 has all but shut down in-person fundraising, this bundle is critical in ensuring JDRF’s important work can continue,” Dan says. “I’m grateful to Skybound and to the new owners of Telltale for bringing The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Batman together again, as well as to Night School Studio and Inkle for offering their brilliant games in support of JDRF. And to everyone who pitches in to help fund the research that will someday allow my son and millions of others to live free of the burden of type 1 diabetes, thank you!”

Starting this Friday, JDRF will feature several games from the Humble Summer Adventure Games Bundle on their Twitch channel ( with help from content creators AverageSiegeDarkInsanitiesCalebratedGamer, and MissRogueFlame. All four have connections to type 1 diabetes and were among the 60+ participants in JDRF’s inaugural livestream fundraising event, which took place over a week in November 2019 and raised about $37k for T1D research. JDRF Game2Give’s next big Twitch fundraiser is scheduled for August 7-16.

Game developers, publishers, players, and streamers who want to get involved with JDRF Game2Give can visit or email

About Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and — at present — nothing you can do to get rid of it.

About JDRF Game2Give
Spearheaded by JDRF’s Greater Bay Area chapter, JDRF Game2Give is an initiative that harnesses the fundraising potential of the multibillion-dollar video game industry. JDRF Game2Give brings together all types of people with T1D who work and play with video games, mobilizing this community to raise money and awareness for diabetes research. Our initial Twitch and Humble Bundle fundraisers in November 2019 raised more than $500k for T1D research. Visit to learn more or to join our livestream fundraising team and get news about upcoming events.

About JDRF
JDRF’s mission is to improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. To accomplish this, JDRF has invested more than $2.2 billion in research funding since our inception. We are an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. We collaborate with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our staff and volunteers throughout the United States and our international affiliates are dedicated to advocacy, community engagement and our vision of a world without T1D.

“Hawthorne is a lauded Eisner- and Harvey-nominated cartoonist… and his spectacular illustrative skills are especially evident throughout.”—Booklist, Starred Review

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 1, 2020) – BOOM! Studios is proud to reveal a brand new look at the original graphic memoir HAPPINESS WILL FOLLOW from Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated cartoonist Mike Hawthorne (Deadpool, Superior Spider-Man) as he tells the true and tragic story of enduring abuse and discovering a love of art that helped him to build the home he never had in this graphic memoir about family, survival, and what it means to be Puerto Rican in New York.

Mike Hawthorne’s mother, Blanca Otero, was a proud though atypical Puerto Rican woman from Santurce, San Juan who moved to the mainland, where she became a single mother and struggled to raise her son alone in New York City, a place that tormented them both with its unforgiving nature. But when Mike falls victim to a death curse—a haunting sign of the old country that his mother could never truly escape—she begins a series of events that drive him away from her both physically and emotionally, leaving him to grapple with his complicated relationships with his mother, identity, and heritage.

HAPPINESS WILL FOLLOW is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as Mouse Guard by David Petersen; New World by David Jesus Vignolli; Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna and Ramón Pérez; About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau; Big Black: Stand at Attica by Frank “Big Black” Smith, Jared Reinmuth, and Améziane; and We Served the People: My Mother’s Stories by Emei Burell, as well as licensed series including Lev Grossman’s The Magicians: Alice’s Story by Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak; Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.

Print copies of HAPPINESS WILL FOLLOW will be available on July 21, 2020 at bookstores, and August 12, 2020 at local comic book shops (use to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
