The San Diego Comic-Con blog has announced an limited-edition exclusive cover for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #40 as part of the Diamond Previews.
Last year, Shattered Grid made comic book history. This year NECESSARY EVIL changes what you think you know about the Power Rangers with a reveal that will have everyone talking! The Power Rangers comic book event of 2019 begins here with the first appearance of the Power Ranger everyone’s been asking about-the fan favorite White Ranger! The all-new team of creators from record breaking Power Rangers: Shattered Grid (Ryan Parrot and Daniele Di Nicuolo) present the return of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. But what happened to the universe after the defeat of Lord Drakkon? And what do our Rangers remember? (MAR198388) Limited to 3,000 copies.
nWay Games has released a brand new free update to Power Rangers: Battle For the Grid. As seen in the video below, this update includes a new story mode that allows you to play through the Shattered Grid story, written by Kyle Higgins, who also directs the voice cast that includes several returning Ranger actors. Jason David Frank returns as Tommy Oliver and Lord Drakkon, Austin St. John returns as Jason, David J. Fielding is Zordon, Kerrigan Mahan voices Goldar, and, like she did for the script reading at Morphicon, Meghan Camarena plays Kimberly.
While there is no word on any new characters added to the game in this update (other than those added during the last update), there are new Story Mode only battle arenas, such as the Command Center (malfunctioning), and Lord Drakkon’s Throne Room (in a flashback).
The update, and the game, are available now for Playstation 4, XboxOne, and Nintendo Switch.

Synopsis from ShoutFactory:
“A high-spirited fantasy adventure …” – The Hollywood Reporter
It’s the Power Rangers to the rescue as they race to save the planet Earth from certain destruction at the hands of a ruthless band of evil space aliens. The evil space alien Divatox plans to unleash the dark forces of Maligore, a powerful, fiery creature imprisoned inside a volcano on the magical island of Muiranthias. She can reach the island only by traveling through the dangerous Nemesis Triangle, and for that she needs the special powers of the magician Lerigot. But Lerigot flees to Earth, to see the only people who can stand against Divatox and her evil plan — the Power Rangers. Along with the new Blue Ranger, their turbo-powered Zords, and the unexpected help of original Power Rangers Kimberly and Jason, the Power Rangers set out on their most thrilling and dangerous adventure yet!
Shout!Factory has announced that Season 2 of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be collected into steelbook collection. The collection includes all 52 episodes!
Shout Factory Synopsis: Tired of Rita Repulsa’s failure to dominate the Earth, her boss, Lord Zedd, steps in to take matters into his own hands.

To battle this new villain who is twice the evil tyrant Rita was, the Power Rangers are imbued with new and greater powers, along with new Zords modeled after mythological creatures — the Thunderzords. The Power Rangers are joined by new friends and new Rangers, including the powerful White Ranger, a ferocious hero armed with Saba, the talking sword, and the mighty White Tigerzord.
