Zack's evil doppleganer being Lord Drakkon could also be the reason why they cut the issue revealing he was almost the green ranger from the trade. Perhaps that will go in the trade covering this storyline.

Ooh very nice preview. The suits actually seem to have a bit of a MMPR TM design mixed into them as well. Was that intentional Kyle?

Yay, previews of what I've been just as excited for, #10.

The dialogue boxes for the narration are yellow. Is Trini narrating? That would be so cool.

I do like the Mastodon Sentries. That's pretty damn inspired.

trades typically go for 4 issues especially with something like Boom, unless it's a mini-series like the Pink Ranger series. The only reason vol 1 of MMPR was different was because they added #0 and that was only half an issue.

That was my first guess but then I thought, wouldn't the boxes be blue? Since they're yellow, I figured it might be Trini, it would be a cool idea to have his closest friend on the team narrate his story, kinda like Katara narrating Aang's story in the Avatar intro. Plus, the dialogue sounds a bit more like Trini than Billy, it's not far fetched for her to talk like that.

Oh yeah, I think the review I linked a page ago mentioned a monologue from Billy. Oh well.

It could also be possible that both Trini and Billy will be narrating.

8. All-New Pink Ranger
9. All-New Blue Ranger
10. All-New Black Ranger
11. All-New Red Ranger
12. All-New Yellow Ranger
13. Purple backup Ranger Bulk
14. Orange backup Ranger Skull
15. Green Tyrannosaurus Ranger
16. Green Sabertooth Tiger Ranger
17. Green Mastodon Ranger
18. Green Pterodactyl Ranger
19. Mastodon Sentries
20. Lord Drakkon

Yep. That's 20 so far, And that's all been this year alone.

Kyle, do you have official Ranger and team names for the Green and Pink powered versions?

So, why did they put a Green Triceratops Ranger on the cover if he wasn't actually in the issue?

A lot of the Boom! covers don't necessarily correlate to what's actually going on in the issue. As some have mentioned, even Kimberly's new pink suit didn't make it once to any of her covers. That said, it is entirely possible that a Green-powered Blue Ranger will show up in the next couple of issues seeing as how everyone's still currently using that power set to morph. Billy just hasn't had the opportunity to do so. The other four core Rangers are operating their Zords but as mentioned here Billy and Tommy have ventured 'into the badlands' so to speak.

Did Billy even retrieve his coin? All we saw was him going from Goldar's dimension straight to Tommy's side.

I'll have to re-read the issues, but I don't believe he did. I think that his power coin is at the command center with Rita, isn't it? I'm definitely having one of those "did I dream that or did it really happen...?" moments right now.

Just read through #10. Aww, it was so inspiring. Like the more suspenseful #5 standalone, it was bit grating at first but as pages went on, it grew on me. And the art is beautiful.

Also like #5, this issue put significant focus on special item, #5 had the dragon coin, #10 has the communicators.

Turns out Billy's monologues are actually him reading a book, so I guess that's why the dialogue boxes aren't blue, they aren't actually his words.

I can see Kyle jumped on yet another opportunity to put a pair of unlikely characters together. We had Jason/Kim in #2, Trini/Tommy in #3, now we got Billy/Zack. It always stood out to me that Billy and Zack were one of the few Blue and core Black/Green rangers who weren't particularly close. Especially since Jason and Tommy were so close and Kim with Trini. It's nice to see them having a heart to heart.

So I've gotta say, Kyle Higgins you are one cruel bastard throwing a one off in right after that huge reveal of the new ranger. But I can't even be mad becausethe interaction between Billy and Zack was great. It's something that really didn't happen in the series and it always should have. Anyway now it's time to sit here and eagerly await the next issue.

the blue and black issues are pretty good, makes me wish the pink series was just that. a series of one-offs that connects the main plot.

Great issue, and makes me love Billy even more than I already did. And I'm kind of thinking that the whole making an impossible shot angle is going to come back into play at some point.

Isn't Billy violating one of Zordon's rules, by staying morphed just to boost his confidence?

Never use your power for personal gain? I guess that's technically true. But like many things, I'm sure there's a loop hole. Since it's to better himself as a ranger, and not for trying to conquer earth, I think he's probably getting a pass.

And nerds in this board cared about "Zordon's sacred rules" far far, far more than anyone involved in the franchise ever did.
