In the comic world, crossovers are all the rage at the moment. Power Rangers and TMNT are no exception to this! Previously, the groups teamed up with each other in 2019 for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, BOOM! Studios have revealed that they’re going to release a sequel to this series.

In 2019, BOOM! Studios released Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which served as the first comic crossover for the Power Rangers and TMNT. Ryan Parrott wrote this comic, while Simone di Meo did the illustrations. Previously, Parrott worked on other stories for the Power Rangers, such as Go Go Power Rangers, as well as other franchises like Rogue Sun. Originally, the crossover showed these two teams working to defeat enemies like Shredder, Karai, Bebop, Rocksteady, and Baxter Stockman.

Now, BOOM! revealed that fans will step back into the world of these groups with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II. The comic will be a direct sequel to the original, and Ryan Parrott is once again handling the story. Dan Mora is the illustrator, and he has worked on plenty of other comics, such as Once & Future. Also, he handled the DC crossover Batman/Superman: World’s FinestThis crossover is being licensed by Hasbro, who own Power Rangers. Nickelodeon owns Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they’re partnering with IDW Publishing and Hasbro to release the comic.

So, we can expect this Power Rangers and TMNT crossover to be just as fantastic as the original one!

The first Power Rangers and TMNT was a hit with fans and led to plenty of exciting times. In the words of Dafna Pleban, the Senior Editor for BOOM!:

“The first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles team up resulted in iconic moments such as the reveal of the Green Ranger Shredder, the Ninja Rangers, and the mighty Turtlezord! But if you think there’s nothing that could top that, just wait ’til you see what’s up next for both teams as they face familiar faces and unexpected villains in an adventure full of the new shocking twists and turns!”Clearly, BOOM! have lots of exciting moments in store for this Power Rangers and TMNT crossover. However, the previous volume of the comic series wasn’t the first time these groups worked together. Previously, the Ninja Turtles appeared in the live-action show Power Rangers in Space in 1998. This led to the Turtles getting their own series, Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, but Fox Kids cancelled it after one season.

It wasn’t until 2019 that fans finally got the Power Rangers and TMNT crossover that they’d been looking for. During this original series, Tommy Oliver pretended to be tricked by the evil Shredder so that he could become part of the Foot Clan. However, the Shredder turned the tables on Oliver and took his special Power Rangers abilities. Eventually, this led to the other Rangers losing their special powers and forcing them to ask for help from the Turtles. As a result of this, the Turtles gained some special morphing powers.

Unfortunately, it’s not clear what’s going to happen in this latest Power Rangers and TMNT crossover. However, the cover art for the volume seems to show that the groups are once again fighting the Foot Clan, suggesting we might see a return. Additionally, we can also see the Putty Patrollers and Krang overseeing the whole affair, so perhaps they will feature in the crossover as well.

In their original comic series, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have undergone a bit of a change. After all, Venus de Milo became something other than a Turtle – she became a full mutant! Additionally, some of the Power Rangers fought against the Death Ranger, as well as corrupted versions of themselves. Perhaps these aspects of the Power Rangers and TMNT will feature in the newest crossover.

Nevertheless, what we do know is that BOOM! Studios and IDW will release the comic book in December 2022.
