Power Rangers Comic Book Reading Order Guide

Back in 2016, comic book publisher Boom Studios launched their line of Power Rangers comics. They mixed classic concepts from the first season with plenty of new ideas to create stories that fans new and old have been clamouring for.

With a bunch of different comics available and the occasional crossover, it’s not always clear as to where they all fit in with one another. Luckily, there’s this mighty reading order to help make sense if everything.

Read on to find out what you need to know about the Power Rangers comics.

Which comics are part of this reading order?

While Power Rangers comics have been published by many different companies over the years, this list primarily focuses on the ones by Boom Studios.

Why? This is because they are the current home of the comics, they have the most cohesive story, and the ones that are the most freely available.

How are the comics different from one another?

Similar to the TV show, where there are distinct versions of the rangers, the comics have established a multiverse where different teams can exist. The main title, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (MMPR), focuses on a modern interpretation of the original line-up. While the secondary title, Go Go Power Rangers (GGPR), focuses on the original team that’s rooted in the 90s.

Apart from a few instances where they crossover with each other, they tell separate stories and can be read independently. (The reading order will explain when the titles crossover)

Where can I find Power Rangers comics?

Power Rangers comics can be found in all good comic book stores, online stores, eBay, and digitally.

Note: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Go Go Power Rangers were two seperate Power Rangers that were being published at the same time. They are set in their own separate universes and do no relate to each other until they crossover in Power Rangers: Shattered Grid. As a result, you can read either series first. This has been confirmed by MMPR writer Kyle Higgins. I have put them this way to space them out as MMPR is much longer than GGPR.

Unlimited Power Era

From November 2020, Boom Studios is relaunching the Power Rangers comics as two concurrent series – Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers. Mighty Morphin will focus on a cast that’s closer to season 2 of the show. Power Rangers will focus on the original line-up, now known as the Omega Rangers.

As they’re so new, it’s not known at the moment how much these two comics will intertwine with each other. I’ll update this section once we get a better picture of what’s going on.

  • It’s my understanding from reading both series that MMPR and GGPR are in the same universe, just different points in time. In the beginning, GGPR takes place in the Ranger’s early days before the Green Ranger comes, while MMPR takes place right after Rita’s spell was broken and Tommy joins the team. After Shattered Grid, there is a time jump for both with MMPR starting up with Tommy as the White Ranger and Rocky, Aisha & Adam as Rangers. GGPR picks up in the final days of the Green Ranger and pretty much leads all the way to where MMPR just started with the White Ranger and new Red, Yellow & Black Rangers. So they are definitely connected!

  • When it comes to the new series, Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers, the reading order DOES matter at first. Read Mighty Morphin #1 followed by Power Rangers #1 and then continue on as you like. These series’ do branch out on their own but not until AFTER this. Be warned, the #2s may contain spoilers if not read in this order.

  • Question, you said that MMPR and GGPR are in separate universes and don’t relate to each other until shattered grid but when I click on the link for the tweet you’re referencing it says they are in the same universe it’s just GGPR takes place before MMPR which makes sense since Ranger Slayer Kim shoots Tommy with the arrow that comes into play when drakkon stabs and “Kills” Tommy. If they were separated then her doing that wouldn’t have meant anything to for the MMPR comics

  • Thank you so much for this! I love reading these. This list makes returning to reading them after a while much easier.

  • Why you didn’t mention anything about mighty morphing Rise of Drakkon? what’s the order for that one? or can i read that one whenever i want ? i’m confused.

  • Thank you so much for this list. The only comic that I believe is missing from this amazing and detailed chronological list (again, thank you!) is the Free Comic Book Day Road to Ranger Slayers issue.

    Thanks again,

    JP
