The truly epic crossover in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 has sold out at the distributor level, meaning it will return with a second printing in February. The series is written by Ryan Parrott, who says he channeled his inner 10 year-old while writing, illustrated by Simone di Meo, colored by Walter Baiamonte, and lettered by Ed Dukeshire. It’s a combined effort between BOOM! Studios, IDW Publishing and Nickelodeon, under licensing from Hasbro.
When the new printing hits stores next month, it will feature three covers: a main cover of both teams by Dan Mora and two variant covers by Goñi Montes. Additionally, a special, limited edition black and white version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 will hit shelves on January 2020, with more cover art by Mora.
“Seeing the Power Rangers meet the Ninja Turtles for the first time is one of the most exciting pop culture events of the year so we want to make sure everyone has a chance to get their copy,” said Filip Sablik, President, Sales and Marketing, BOOM! Studios, in a statement. “The anticipation for this event has been thrilling and with several new covers, including a couple featuring Shredder, and a brand new black and white edition of the issue itself, fans everywhere will have the chance to celebrate this historic series from the very start. And it’s only getting bigger from here!”
