I used to be excited to read Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Now It's just another book in the pile. Sometimes the comic is good, sometimes it's bad but lately, Power Rangers has just been meh.

I am Reading MMPR/TMNT and in that series, Simone Di Meo has been putting on a storytelling clinic. Here he's reduced to drawing page after page of exposition and it totally kills the pacing for this story arc.

I almost lost the plot of the issue until something cool happened toward the end of the comic. It's a damn shame because Jamal Campbell's cover of Ari in mid morph is simply incredible and is one of the best covers I've seen in this series.

When Simone is able to create he's able to pull emotion out of the reader and operate on a grand scale that few artists can reach. He's being wasted in this storyline.

I'm not sure who this arc is for or why the story has slowed down so much, but I wish Marguerite would get out of her own way and let the book be fun. Way too much deconstruction and not enough action or story progression.
