Original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers cast member Amy Jo Johnson, along with co-writer Matt Hotson are writing a brand new Power Rangers series, to be published by Boom Studios.
Amy Jo Johnson began her acting career as Kimberly Hart, the original Pink Power Ranger, and is now returning to Power Rangers in comic book form, after appearing in shows such as Susie Q, Perfect Body, Felicity, and Flashpoint, as well writing and directing short films, feature films, and recently directing The CW's Superman and Lois.
"It's been decades since I first put on the Pink Ranger suit, which started my career in the entertainment industry. I had no idea the impact this character would have on so many children. I was your friend, and you've supported my career through all its twists and turns, and now thirty years later, I'm honoured to have the opportunity to say thank you by writing this new Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series with Boom Studios as a love letter to all of you!" said Amy Jo Johnson. Co-writer Matt Hotson has worked as an assistant director on TV shows like Titans.
"There was never a universe in which BOOM! celebrated the monumental 30th anniversary of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers without Amy Jo Johnson. She has proven herself again and again as a strong storyteller with a compelling voice, and getting to bring her and Matt in to tell a new Power Rangers story is a full-circle moment for all of us here at BOOM! Studios." said Dafna Pleban, Power Rangers series editor.
