Shut the fuck up, this art style looks amazing.
>Megazord in first panel is resized and flipped in last panel.
>Dragonzord was probably repurposed from another page as well.
I'd think it's a cute running gag if they did it for a once-an-issue thing like the transformations/pre-battle poses, but that's troubling.
I don't know how I feel about the humor yet. Still, this beats a pie to the face any day.
In splash pages and pinups, sure, but for an actual comic about Power Rangers? All the preview pages they've shown so far have mediocre page composition, sketchy ass lines at points, weird inking, weird panel transitions, not too much energy or action being conveyed, and the tone of the visuals isn't quite the same as the dialogue.
What I'm saying is this art's competent, but it's probably not suited for a Power Rangers book. Also
>Megazord in first panel is resized and flipped in last panel.
I wish people would stop pretending to know what they're talking about.
Look again, the megazord on those panels the colors are off, the triceratops foot in exchanged with the the Tiger leg, and the shield is on the other arm, also there's no water dripping off of the zord on the bottom panel.
Who are you trying to impress? You're anonymous, no one gives a shit if you know what you're talking about or not, but people will call you out if you're an idiot.
>Anyone who has any criticism of my beloved children's television programs and their adaptations is automatically a raging nerd! REEEEEEE!
Oh fuck off. THIS page over here
is actually pretty good and is the kind of style and composition the rubber suit parts of the book could use (with a bit more action and spectacle). The goofier, campier aspects of the book need a level of abstraction to convey the same sort of decisive divide they have from the unsuited characters in the show.
You're replies screams of severe sensitivity over power rangers. Whatever you are on, you should really take it easy.
>Y-you're just being sensitive
You're just being a fucking moron. You clearly knew what the fuck was going on. You weren't asking a question, you were pulling passive aggressive bullshit that rangerboard is known for.
Best case scenario: He traced his own art and made a few changes.
Worst case scenario (and more likely): He made a base pose for the Megazord, had the Mastadon hand as a drawing on a separate layer, resized them both and flipped the Megazord, and added water effects on the top Megazord drawing. The colorist kept things consistent and the differences in detail are due to the inker having the two different, copy pasted Megazords in different resolutions to ink separately.
The second option is more likely because the dumbass forgot to fix the M's on its pauldrons.
Please stop arguing with legit autists.
Power Rangers fans are nearly Thomas the Tank Engine level. You will never be able to reason with them.
>Do you know what I made? A SCREAMING JAR, to safely release the multi-faceted stress you provide me daily.
I hope we get to see that jar.
I hope it gets turned into a monster by the villains.
>Bulk: Hot dang, Skull. We've created some kind of SCREAMularity!
>Kimberly: Can we...you know. Just let them-?
>Jason: No. I...no...it wouldn't be right.
>Kimberly: But it would feel so good.
It's not that low, man, but they've got these weird hangups on continuity and minutiae that makes some of the lowest rungs of Sanic look tame. They almost always end up either tearing the shows apart for incidental bullshit that doesn't matter or screaming at anyone who dares to criticize it, too.
Shit's weird. You'd think they'd just enjoy their dumb sentai.
>actually normal-bodied rangers and not EVERYONE HAS SUPERMAN PECS NOW
Dang, things have changed since last time I read one of those.
That was about a decade ago, but still.
>take itself too seriously
I'm hoping they do, at least because it would mean a possibility of a threatening Zedd.
Post-marriage with Rita Zedd is a fucking joke and not in a good way.
This has nothing to do with hipsterism. focusing on the original iteration of a franchise that has sinxe developed beyond it is wrong no.matter who does it. Pokemon,Transformers, Yugioh,Ben 10... It's throwing out years of quality for cheap nostalgia .I personally hope this acts as a deeper delve into Zordon era lore but this is a power ranger book that is ignoring the vast majority of power rangers
>since developed beyond
Fuck you. MMPR is more iconic. of COURSE they are going to start with it's iconic origins. They tried pumping out Samurai and Megaforce comics and they did poorly. Go back to rangerboard to complain about Tommy.
>ignoring the vast majority
It's not even fucking out yet. Plus it's going to do its own thing. it doesnt HAVE to adhere to the constraints of the sentai footage. They can get crazy power ups, or new costumes all together. Maybe something to fit with their dinosaur motif. The point is, they want a fresh start on the iconic franchise, and you are nothing less than delusional to believe they would start elsewhere than the beginning of the phenomenon
Blind faggotry is grade A rangerboard material
>It's throwing out years of quality for cheap nostalgia
What quality? Seriously, apart from your few outliers like RPM, not many people liked the Disney era while it was running, and especially not compared to the more recent run of seasons.
Not that nolstalgia-fagging isn't annoying, but you can't blame them when the majority of people will still be surprised Power Rangers is even running.
The new Voltron cartoon actually hit on the idea of the lions having interchangeable weapons depending on which lion component was featured. The Japs came up with some decent concepts, but US writers expand upon it. The Morphing Grid for example is something the Japs never thought of.
We get a Power Rangers comic but we still can't do this to the monsters?!
You can still do iconic without being derivative, Tf vs Gi Joe.
And you misunderstood. I wasn't saying it was the comics fault, OF COURSE they are going to go off mmpr. But that's a symptom of a wider phenomena when something gets big, and then after it's "fad age" is over, that one slice of time defines the franchise forever despite it still ongoing. In pop culture. TMNT is forever the 80s cartoon
Transformers is always g1
Pokemon is the original cartoon and gameboy games
And Power Rangers is MMPR.
It's limiting, especially when a franchise goes long running and by sheer Sturgeon's law, you get really good stuff overshadowed by the eariler, less polished vesions because it was in the zeitgeist
It's like if the image of Batman was still stuck at 66.Yes it had it's charm
but Batman is so much more than that.
I am not saying fuck g1,I am saying fuck GEEWUN, the concept of over focus on one era of a work due to nostalgia and fads rather than quality.
A straight up comic retelling of Zordon era lore would be awesome, especially now that they can stich the space opera stuff more holistically than the show did when it wrote on the fly.
But it's limiting that they couldn't, for example do an entire "original season" freed from the fetters of stock footage, or an epic crossover, or an Ancient power rangers flashback
or an SPD space opera, or any other countless possibilities because Nostalgia has poisoned the well.
You're still delusional if you think a proper reboot of the comic should start with anything less iconic then the beginning. Yes, there are some AMAZING Power Ranger seasons that trump MMPR, but MMPR IS the iconic image of the franchise. They are now going to bring it into the modern age, so that it isn't as corny. MMPR will simply sell more.
Mmmpr wasn't the best series
just the most iconic.
SPD , Time Force, RID, In Space, Lightspeed Rescue, Wild Force. ...i mean it would be easier to list the ones not better than it.
Model Ts don't win races.
There is a reason The Kane Finger run is no ones favorite Batman series.
It usually take development over time for a franchise like this to really develop.
You ever play the first sets of Magic or Yugioh? Almost unplayable but had the seeds for something greater.
You eat apples, not apple seeds
And they may cover that, but seeing something so.aggressively. ..cynical is disheartening.
Especially due to modern comic pacing meaning it will be years before we really get deep into anything.
We will spend Half a fucking year on like, one Green Ranger episode.
I loved Zeo but you're selling Space short. Space dealt with a lot if issues like Zordon being captured, Astronema being Karone, TJ stepping down as Red and coming to terms with Andros as leader, and so much more.
You again confuse me. I know why they had to do it, the problem is that it was necessary to begin with.
It's not just PR, it happens to a lot of long running franchises.
The movie is MMPR for the exact same reason. And the fact that the fresh start is a mmpr retelling is exactly my point, I am not against Mmpr, I am against disproportionate focus on it.
Your Batman example is a false equivalence. If anything this new comic could do for MMPR what the comics/Animated series did for Batman. You're not even giving it a chance, you're just doom saying because it's not a comic about your favorite season, that frankly, no body but the niche fandom has seen.
Let the comic be it's own thing, and play out the MMPR story in ways that only a comic could do. There are no longer any restraints as to what the stock footage brings, you're just upset just to be upset. You're whining over something you haven't even read or given a chance. So basically, you're being classic /co/.
You don't KNOW how the rangers will be represented, or HOW the story will unfold, or HOW different it will be. Just because they use the iconic beginnings, doesn't mean it's going to stick to the source as close as possible.
No. The comic writer already said that prequel/back stories like that are unnecessary and detracts from an actual story. He doesn't want t have to rely on that cheap, easy stuff. Added lore is nice, but it doesn't have to be in the form of a past backstory.
come on anon: rangers go to space, lone survivor red, astronema is his sister, first batlizer, psycho rangers, zordon dies.
shit was cash. and with the feel of a more overarching plot it had, bland is honestly not something i'd call it, even if i hadn't liked it.
>implying the Green Ranger wasn't the hottest shit
Tommy was always cool but there's something about the Green Ranger that made him extra awesome.
While you're right about all people do is get obsessed over one era I is just the freaking beginning of a book so chances are it will start at the thing people are most familiar with. It isn't like there have been 4 comic series in the past like 6 years all about this. Expecting them to do something like SPD or time force right off the bat then not getting it just seems like getting mad the unlikely thing you were hoping for/expecting didn't happen. They could easily do that stuff in sequel series or spinoff books but if you're gonna start fresh with a franchise it is natural to start with where the franchise actually started. That isn't being the symptom to anything. And if anything is bad it is pretty much reserved to the fans. Like pokemon may remake some old games but the only time first generation only is brought up is by fans, same thing with stuff like yu-gi-oh, they don't listen to fans and just keep doing shit with yugi and joey they add new eras all the time. But if any of these things were to restart with not having too many major changes in mind then the logical first step is to start with the "classic" stage of everything then move on from there later.
i don't think you got his point. the problem is not with it being about MMPR, but rather about it going back to the start of PR.
it is a real tendency that shows have to do this, they always go back to the start of the franchise despite there being a whole lot else to explore or go from, and the start being iconic really isn't an excuse.
the comic being good or not is not the issue, the issue is the decision to go back to the start of a long-running franchise with little specific motive to. and it's not just this comic.
I am not arguing that it's iconic or that it was the right move. I am saying it shouldn't have had to gone that way. An original power rangers comic/film should have been possible, an expansion on lore from other series should have been possible. It should not have been "MMPR is the most iconic so we have to do it."
Are you listening. I neger said the comic will be bad, I hope it will be good, I LIKE mmpr. My entire point was that them HAVING to do it, because as you said, it made most economic sense, is a bad thing.
That's the point, History was rewritten, so that Sentai originated with Power Rangers and Dairanger, the second season of MMPR's source was replaced with Akibaranger, and only the Red Ranger knows.
Watch Akibaranger, even if you don't watch Sentai.
He's saying that he's afraid that it might not be any good because instead of having some heart behind it as a labor of love, it'll be a tax write off or something done to fulfill a contract.
>Liking hahayeaaa over motherfucking Jason
Jason fucking ruled. Better leader, beat Tommy one on one, and just fucking cooler. Tommy felt like an accessory to the team, whereas Jason actually led them.
Scenes with Zords fighting individually might make little timmy feel like it's alright JUST to buy one zord.
You need the scenes with all 5 zords combined to make sure little timmy knows that he has to have all of them to be cool
I would argue if it was attempted with a power ranger's comic, it would 'miss the mark' needed to have that proper balance of violence and people would start labeling the comic as 'edgy.'
>Grew up on Power Rangers
>See's a comic that might possibly pique interest
>All this angsty autism
Yep. This is gonna be one of those fandoms to avoid.
Umm.. If you are going to start a Power Ranger comic it is just common sense to start with MMPR. I'm sorry, you are delusional to think it is a good idea to start on one of your random seasons.
But that's just baseless assumption. You can't tell whether something has heart based on the choice of season. His fear is baseless.
How? Do you know it's based on cheap nostalgia? Maybe they just want a clean slate to start over, and take PR into new directions? If anything you are artistically limiting the writer by forcing the tv series canon/seasons into it. They might want to branch off, take it in new directions, maybe even make new powers. The fear and complaint is baseless. The comic isn't even out yet.
You could start anywhere you wanted.
A hexagon series; going straight beast wars on it, an original team, a big massive crossover war, a Space opera based on all the Zordon era factions, a Gobusters adatation or one for any other sentai teams... the Zordon and Rita age...anything you want.
MMpr is just the most likely to profit due to brang recognition
Nope. another delusional, terrible idea. They need to grab the reader with what makes the brand recognizable THEN switch things up. That's just how it works, it doesn't detract or stifle creativity, it just builds off an existing world and establish mythos. You're really reaching.
>anywhere you wanted
No. I'm sorry but the other seasons do NOT have that rock star status to sell to casual fans. Once again, the niche group of fans are the only ones who even know PR is still going.
But lets look at it from a story perspective. Why WOULDN'T you go back to the roots and play in the world's sandbox? You get to start from the very beginning and change multiple things, new powers, heck maybe some teams aren't even formed in this time line. You get to sculpt it from a raw, yet recognizable world. Or maybe the writer was a fan of the original, and wanted to play in THAT world as opposed to the others. You would then be stifling his creativity and maybe even his dream by dictating where to start or what to cover. Read the fucking comic before making these outlandish claims. They are tired, old, and at this point pathetic. You're arguing for the sake of arguing at this point, being nothing more than a contrarian and contributing very little to the thread other than your obvious protest to the brand's beginnings.
but it's NOT a problem. It's only a problem if you let it be. It's not hurting you, and it's not keeping others from experiencing the other seasons of Power Rangers. It's taking a classic and making it it's own. You won't KNOW it's even a problem until you read it and see what they do. You're only judging it based off the season they chose. The amount of creativity or restrains there of, isn't indicative of the series choice.
Okay, hope you enjoy your
trainswhen the next series rolls around in America.
Well shit, I guess trains to appeal to kids like they used to.
Oh my fucking god I FUCKING KNOW.
The entire rock star status shit is what I have been talking.about.
I know MMPR is the most popular and I know that means it's gonna get first picks at stuff like this that does not make it a good thing.
Jesus christ with you.
Calm down. You shouldn't have been so childish in the first place. You wanted to just keep it going on baseless fears. It's rock star status, for the 90000000th time is not indicative of its creative leash. If you want to whine about it, go back to rangerboard.
There's a difference between having more gravitas and taking itself too seriously. Zedd can be more menacing and the writing quality can be far higher while keeping true to the spirit of "OH NO, THE MONSTER OF THE WEEK IS A BOOMBOX COME TO LIFE!"
>Post-marriage with Rita Zedd is a fucking joke
That's because soccer-moms complained about him being too scary.
Saban's Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Zircon is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe, and monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Zircon is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Spirit Crystal, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Throwing Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess the Spirit Crystal. The evil Zircon sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Crystal, where each epic battle against the Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Throwing Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary ninja steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save our planet from destruction."
Hasn't all of Post-Saban Reacquisition Power Rangers just been taking the Sentai plot and scrubbing all endearing character traits off the characters? That's what Samurai seemed to be when I gave it a peek.
>Screams have no mass! You're not supposed to be able to fill them!
I was hesitant about this comic at first, but this sold me.
That describes Samurai and Megaforce, but Dino Charge is under a different Producer (who's also written or co-written nearly every episode) and has been changing a lot from Kyoryuger
Don't get me wrong. I would rather read a Time Force or Lightspeed Rescue continuation or maybe even a comic-only Ranger but when the vast majority of people think "Power Rangers", they think MMPR.
I know, doing lcd shilling type stuff is surrendering to cynicism. Just doing what is most known to sell isn't what got MMPR big in the first place. You think Saban got mad bux by just taking what was already known. Creativity, Innovation ,Artistry. Not the shallow penny pincher of bean counters and focus groups.
