KIRKUS REVIEW

Touted as the lost stories, this collection draws from across the Mighty Morphin universe.

When a mysterious fox changes all of the guests at a charity ball into cats and rabbits, it is up to the Yellow Ranger to find a way to not only save their guests, but change the outlook of the misguided fox in “A Spot of Trouble.” In “It’s Putty Time,” the Pink Ranger questions if the putties, while lacking in intelligence, might have feelings. In “Sabrina’s Day Out,” two of Rita Repulsa’s minions abandon their mission to dig up dirt on the squeaky-clean Power Rangers and decide to enjoy an afternoon at the carnival. The detailed and colorful artwork varies from hyper-realistic to cartoonish and everywhere in between. Lighthearted themes like villains pressed into service for good and a foiled day off are appropriately colorful. A darker story featuring the origin story of the gifted sculptor Finster follows his spiral into madness with illustrations rendered in sepia tones. The disparate collection of short stories is peppered with covers from various events and publications. Diversity is suggested through varying skin tones as it follows the Power Ranger lore. Fans will be glad to see that, as always, good triumphs over evil.

A mighty collection of stories that expands the Power Ranger mythos. (Graphic novel. 10-14)
