The League and the Rangers are at a stand still trying to
assess one another. Jon Stewart attempts to contain them, but then the Power Rangers
call unto their Dinozord Power totally shattering John’s green shield. This was
a beautiful splash page. Some more fighting (on pretty equal grounds I should
mention) when they finally come to the realization that none of them are bad
guys. This conclusion was helped brought on by the lasso of truth in a pretty
epic panel I will say so myself. Now that the fighting is done the Rangers
reveal that they can’t return home, because when he came here Zack also brought
along a friend. And by friend I mean super bad guy Lord Zedd. If things
couldn’t get any worse Lord Zedd has found himself in the company of Braniac.
With two evil minds together you know something bad is going to happen, like an
unleashing of monsters all across Earth. It’s up to the Power Rangers and the Justice
League to work together to fix this horrendous attack.
SO I definitely read this whole issue with the biggest smile
on my face, and now my jaw hurts. I don’t know what was better watching the
Rangers in full Dinozord mode, or Flash’s reaction to it. I love how simple and
clean the art was. The backgrounds stayed a neutral color to not take away from
the awesomeness of what laid on each panel. The way the characters were drawn
felt like I was up early on a Saturday morning watching my favorite cartoon.
With this being such a homage to so many of our childhoods, that style was just
perfect. So many little moments throughout this issue that made me genuinely
laugh out loud.The last page actually
had my arms up in the air and cheering. If you can’t tell I was a pretty big
Power Rangers fan as a kid and to see it on the pages with my beloved Justice
League. I think my inner child is on the verge of exploding! Tom Taylor did
such an excellent job with meshing the old and the new together. Not only is he
paying respect to the Rangers he’s written a really great and exciting story.
Some may say it’s a little campy, but that’s what it’s supposed to be! I loved
every inch of every page. Excellent book!
