New comic to focus on the later years of veteran Power Ranger Tommy Oliver.
Boom! Studios has unveiled a new comic project that was previously discovered on an Amazon Germany listing. The new comic, entitled Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon, will expand upon the lore surrounding the original Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver. The new story will focus on Tommy’s time far after his tenure in Power Rangers: Dino Thunder and follow his character as a father.
The book is written by Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers author Kyle Higgins with art by Giuseppe Cafaro (Justice League vs Suicide Squad) with Tommy’s actor Jason David Frank being brought on as a special consultant for the project. Frank was quoted as showing much enthusiasm for the project. “We go deeper into the multiple Rangers Tommy has become throughout time- I’m excited for all of you to see how Tommy evolves into the Legendary Power Ranger he is and the legacy he will leave behind forever.”
The official description of the plot is as follows:
“It’s been a long time since Tommy Oliver has served as a Power Ranger. He’s defeated space witches, brought down evil armies, protected the galaxy, but now Tommy leaves protecting the world to the Power Rangers at Space Patrol Delta. But when his son goes missing, it’s up to Tommy to discover a secret in his past, in order to save his future. Now Tommy will call on all his training, his friends, and maybe even some of his enemies as he sets out on his most important mission: find his son and bring him home.”
