Comic Book Review: Justice League / Power Rangers #1

DC Comics and Boom! Studios come together to bring one of the most anticipated team-ups we never knew we wanted to see. Justice League / Power Rangers #1 is just as enjoyable as it looks and sounds for anyone who loves either of these super groups. Who wouldn't get excited to see Batman throw down with the Mighty Morphin crew? Artist and Colorist Stephen Byrne keeps things both colorful and moody whenever Writer Tom Taylor's adventure-filled script calls for it in this first chapter in a six-issue miniseries.

Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove! The Power Rangers' Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged. Zack is flung into another universe, where he’s mistaken for a villain by a mysterious masked vigilante. Can the other Power Rangers get to their friend in time to save him from Batman in Justice League / Power Rangers #1?

Justice League / Power Rangers #1 is rated "T" for Teen. However, there's really nothing found beyond what we see in a normal episode of "Power Rangers." The series is rated TVY7 and geared for younger audiences. Stephen Byrne's artwork is cartoonlike and has a more juvenile style akin to the all-ages comics that DC publishes. It contains comic book violence and that's about it. I wouldn't even consider anything to be too intense or frightening.

Justice League / Power Rangers #1 is available now in print and digital editions.
