BOOM! Studios, under license by Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), today announced an original graphic novel POWER RANGERS: SINS OF THE FUTURE, with story by Trey Moore (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
), written by Matthew Erman (Bonding
), illustrated by Giuseppe Cafaro (Saban’s Power Rangers: Soul of The Dragon
), and lettered by Ed Dukeshire. This all-new graphic novel, available in October 2020, features two of the most popular Rangers of all time and what happens to them after the events of the hit Power Rangers: Time Force
After defeating the villainous Ransik alongside their allies in the time-traveling Time Force, Pink Ranger Jen Scotts and Red Ranger Wes Collins want to try for a real relationship. But without sacrificing their commitments to the Silver Guardians and Time Force, can the two actually make the ultimate long-distance relationship work?
When Jen returns from the future, she and Wes are attacked by a mysterious stranger who has dire news - if these two stay together, they’ll disrupt the timeline and change the destiny of humanity! The shocking identity of their accuser sets them on a collision course with an enemy they never expected.
Matthew Erman is a comics writer from Columbus, Ohio. Alongside Lisa Sterle, he co-created the critically acclaimed comic horror series, Long Lost
, which was optioned for Film/TV by Producer Jenny Klein (The Witcher, Daisy Jones and The Six
). Since then, he's worked with IDW on a new Care Bears: Unlock the Magic
series as well as Vault Comics on his upcoming original graphic novel Bonding
, with artist and co-creator Emily Pearson. His short work can be found in anthologies such as Corpus
(2018), Dead Beats
(2019), and Everything is Going Wrong
"I was once six years old eating malted milk-balls in my pj’s, glued to the television, exclusively watching Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
. 25 years later, I'm actually writing Power Rangers, and it is bonkers: a literal dream come true. POWER RANGERS: SINS OF THE FUTURE is the story that my six year old self would have wanted to write,” said writer Matthew Erman. “Jen Scotts of Power Rangers Time Force
takes center stage in this story, and she's such a deep, interesting character with so much to pull from that writing her and other characters from Time Force has been a real gift. It's been so wild to play in this sandbox and easy to see why it's regarded by fans as some of the best the franchise has to offer. I can't wait for everyone to read this!"
Giuseppe Cafaro is an Italian comic book artist who has worked in the industry since 2010 to great acclaim. Cafaro has been the artist for titles such as Catwoman, Suicide Squad,
and Superman/Wonder Woman for DC Comics, Fathom
for Aspen Comics, and Power Rangers: The Psycho Path, Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon
and Firefly: Bad Company
for BOOM! Studios.
“I'm extremely honored to be the artist for a new Power Rangers graphic novel,” said artist Giuseppe Cafaro. “BOOM! Studios is doing a huge and amazing job on every single book of the Power Rangers and I'm sure SINS OF THE FUTURE will be even more fun and intense than ever before!”
Currently, Power Rangers is celebrating 26 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
, the franchise celebrates its milestone anniversary year with the 26th season, “Power Rangers Beast Morphers” currently airing on Saturdays at 8 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S.
“POWER RANGERS: SINS OF THE FUTURE reunites two fan favorites in a love that crosses all of time and space while threatening the very fabric of the universe. For the first time ever, fans will find out what happened to Jen and Wes in this new original graphic novel ” said Dafna Pleban, Senior Editor, BOOM!

Marvel's executive vice president Joe Quesada, like many of us, has been going a tad stir crazy since the ongoing pandemic social distancing, so he has popped a video announcement onto his Facebook
and Twitter accounts announcing a new morning show he will be hosting starting Monday.Joe Q's Mornin' Warm-Up
should be, at least in initial stages, as loose as it comes as Quesada familiarizes himself with home streaming tech. From his vid, it sounds as though there will be the usual: Q & A with fans, interviews, behind-the-scences looks, tutorials, live guests over video conferencing tech, etc.
Quesada said the show would start Monday morning, with an announcement coming on Marvel
’s YouTube account.

MGM IN TALKS FOR HOT ANDY WEIR SCI-FI NOVEL, 'THE HAIL MARY'03/28/20 @ 12:00 pm EST
Last week comic fans and stores were hit with a huge blow thanks to the coronavirus pandemic when Diamond Comic Distributors announced that they will no longer receive shipments of new comics at its warehouses due to the ongoing pandemic, a move that means product dated on or after April 1st will not be shipped. Now, ComicBook.com
reports that DC will be going forward with releasing a limited selection of new DC comics digitally on Wednesday, April 1st.
At this point, full details of what DC will release digitally on Tuesday are not yet available. What is known is that at least some of the week's planned new releases will be made available for customers on digital platforms.
Last Monday, Diamond Comic Distributors announced that they will no longer receive shipments of new comics at its warehouses. In an official statement Steve Geppi, chairman and CEO of Diamond’s parent company Geppi Family Enterprises, stated that the move was prompted from what they were hearing from retailers -- specifically that due to stay at home orders put in place by various state and local governments, stores were no longer able to service customers in a business as usual manner. Additionally, Geppi cited the strain and challenges being experienced by supply chain and others due to the coronavirus pandemic as part of the decision to cease weekly distribution of new product at this time.
On Saturday, DC released their own statement on the ongoing issues of distribution and returnability, indicating that they are looking at other distribution methods, something that could long run lead to the end of Diamond's position in the industry and open up other avenues of sales and shipment.
"Additionally, because we anticipate that continued disruption to business operations will create regional volatility, DC is exploring a multi-distributor model to provide us with the flexibility needed during this crisis to get new content to our readers on an ongoing basis," that statement reads. "In the short-term, we continue to engage in active conversations with Diamond to help us solve the distribution issues that have arisen and hope to get new product to stores that want or need it as soon as possible. We will provide additional information about how we’ll make that happen in the coming days."
Stay tuned to DF News
for further updates on this situation.

Just what we were waiting for, a hot film deal.
Days after the town jumped all over the new novel by The Martian
author Andy Weir, sources said that Project Hail Mary
is in exclusive negotiations to be acquired by MGM in a 7-figure deal. Ryan Gosling will produce with Ken Kao. It is the latest bold move for Michael De Luca since taking the reins of the movie side of the studio. The deals are expected to close quickly.
The book is described as a solitary tale of an astronaut on a space ship who is tasked with saving the planet. There are some very clever twists which will not be given away here, but are consistent with the ingenuity that made The Martian
a thrilling ride.
Gosling is attached to play the astronaut as well. (via Deadline

Russell T Davies has penned and posted
a prequel to the Doctor Who
adventure, "Rose" – the episode that marked the series. What we weren't expecting was for Davies to post a sequel to the return episode, "Revenge of the Nestene".
In the sequel, Davies took us back in time to the last days of "The Time War"… and the beginning of the Doctor's return. This time, viewers get a sense of what happened after the final credits rolled on the the Doctor's return. Both were released to coincide with the global anniversary live-stream/live-tweet that took place on Thursday, which Davies also took part in. (via Bleeding Cool
