With collectibles news this exciting, it doesn’t have to be toy related. Because this, Toy Wizards readers, is going to be HUGE! I personally cannot wait to order my own set of these books.
BOOM! Studios is launching a Kickstarter to offer Power Rangers fans the chance to have all of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers comic books bound into six beautiful hardcover volumes. As a graphic novel/book collector, this is much more appealing to me than stacks of loose, thin comics (everyone is different, no shame!) I’ve been dying to read this whole comic book series, but just haven’t known exactly where to start. This beautiful hardcover bound set will solve those issues and give Power Rangers fans gorgeous books (you can see the aesthetic in the trailer video, they’re stunning) that we can read and hold in our hands.
Let’s get this made! GO, GO POWER RANGERS!
