It’s crisis on Infinite Morphing Grids at the start of Issue 25 with the Power Rangers Time Force team investigating a rather familiar looking crack in space. Things do not seem to be going well for them as a massive shape emerges from the crack. Quick evacuations are made from the near destruction of the Time Force Megazord and we know the stakes are high before the end of even the first scene.
With a creative transition effect, the story moves to the next scene where Jason Scott and Tommy Oliver are reviewing the footage of Saba’s failed attack on Drakkon. Drakkon killed Saba and escaped from PROMETHEA’s cell via a portal made using Saba’s sword section. The already dark mood gets worse when Grace Sterling, who they’re already on uneasy terms with, reveals that Drakkon also stole his morpher before escaping. Things going from bad to worse seems to be the theme of the issue as we continue to see how dangerous Drakkon will be later on.
We get a Ninjor cameo this issue as Drakkon seeks to regain more of his lost power. The Rangers regroup at the command center to discuss Drakkon’s escape and the loss of Saba. They go on high alert and show they are prepared to face this threat head-on, with Jason showing real Red Ranger leadership skills and putting the team on their best-suited priorities. As the team splits up, Kimberly and Tommy take the quick downtime they have to go on a movie date, which is just cute to read.
The remaining Drakkon scenes are too awesome to spoil, but you should read this comic. Shattered Grid is really off to an amazing start and it can only get better from here. The issue is out now at local comic shops and digital apps like Comixology.
