2017 will be a major year for DC Comics lovers, as the company partnered with Saban Brands and BOOM! Studios for a Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers crossover comic book. The monthly series will span six issues and be written by Tom Taylor (The Deep and Injustice: Gods Among Us), writes The Hollywood Reporter.
Irish animator Stephen Byrne (Serenity, Green Arrow) will be behind the artwork. The comic series is in support of next year's Justice League movie and Power Rangers big screen reboot. It will follow Zack the Black Ranger, who ends up in the DC Universe after the Command Center is breached and the teleporters are destroyed. His fellow Rangers try to save him before Batman takes the matter into his own hands.
A press release (via ComicBook.com) states that "each issue will feature a variant cover drawn by one of comics’ most popular artists, pairing each member of the League with a different Power Ranger." This will come with the standard covers drawn by Gotham Academy's Karl Kerschl.
Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers issue #1 will be available on on Jan. 11, 2017. The news comes after the Justice League vs. Suicide Squad crossover comic announcement. Zack Snyder's Justice League will hit theaters Nov. 17, 2017, with Power Rangers arriving in March.
