Power Rangers, one of the hottest topics in comic books right now. They have their fantastic comic book, and then they have their movie, which just dropped a trailer, and it looks extremely promising. Next to it, we have Justice League, which is coming with a new movie in 2017 as part of the DCEU, which is highly anticipated. Combine these two hot topics into one comic book, and you are sure to get an amazing story.
DC Comics is once again teaming with BOOM! Studios to bring us fans an amazing comic crossover. The story will be written by Tom Taylor, who is best known for his work on the Injustice series, and for his work on the current ‘All New Wolverine’ run, and then illustrated by Stephen Byrne.
To get a bit of a preview of the series, just in case you aren’t caught up with both series’, here is the BOOM! Studios press release.
