Story — 5 out of 5: And that, as they say, is that. Ryan Parrott’s final issue is written very well, with fantastic action, and fun humor. It’s more of a culmination of this particular storyline than everything that’s come before, but it was an effective way to close out this chapter of the Power Rangers saga. First off, can we talk about the Tricera-Cannon for a sec? Love the name, but the weapon was pretty useless. And it even shoots a blue blast! I also like the idea that, despite Death Ranger’s possession of their bodies, the Omega Rangers were still fighting back to an extent.
Andros’ way of saving Jason by morphing was unexpected, but makes sense I guess. Not sure what make him think that would work, but okay. The new Zord combination was awesome! I kind of feel bad for Melissa Flores though, since I believe Ryan used up all the possible Zord combinations.
The death of Journey was heartbreaking, but also inspirational. The idea that she did more in her short life than most do in longer lifespans really makes you stop and think for a bit. Her referring to Trini and Zack as Mom and Dad brought a tear to my eye, as did her asking them to stay with her as she prepared to pass on. Very touching.
I’m glad that it was explained that Jason was disconnected from the grid, because it wasn’t clear in the art. This is a great setup for Zeo, explaining why Zack and Trini don’t return, but Jason is able to come back as the Gold Ranger. And Trini taking over as the Red Omega Ranger is deserved as well. It seems to be fairly easy to redistribute the Omega Powers, doesn’t it? And ending the whole thing with Jason’s mom’s voicemail is not only a great callback to earlier in the issue, but also a great way to end things.

Art — 5 out of 5: The art isn’t perfect all the way through, but the good artwork very much outweighs the bad in this issue. Jason returning to certain moments of his past was a great way to bring in the extra artists, and I thought it was fitting for Hendry Prasetya have the last page of the book, as he was the one who started it all way back in issue #0. Moisés Hidalgo once again looks like he was rushing, which is unfortunate. Also, his off model work, such as Jason with Superman hair, is more glaring when the other artists are sticking to the model sheets. Marco Renna’s work was up to his usual high standards. The sequence of Andros morphing had me annoyed at first due to the lack of a 3-3-5, until I realized that the panels themselves were in the shape of the 3-3-5. Awesome!

Overall — 5 out of 5: This was a great issue! And a fun send off for this entire creative team! Highly recommended!
