Power Rangers: The Ultimate Visual History

Written by Ramin Zahed and Jody Revenson
Foreword by Amy Jo Johnson

After the hit series Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers launched in 1993, Haim Saban’s Power Rangers quickly became the most-watched children’s television program in the United States. Today, more than two decades later, Power Rangers is one of the longest-running children’s action series in TV history and has become a global pop culture phenomenon.

Under license from Hasbro, Inc., Insight Editions is pleased to announce Power Rangers: The Ultimate Visual History (November 6, 2018 / $50.00), offering fans a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour of the Power Rangers franchise, from the conception of the television show to the present-day seasons, feature films, toys, video games, comic books, and more. This comprehensive collection features interviews with top creators, as well as some of the key writers and producers responsible for the iconic look and panache of the legendary superhero franchise. Special inserts, charts, art replications, and badges add extra interest and collectibility to this fantastic tribute to the legacy of the Power Rangers. A bonus chapter will also focus on the making of the new Power Rangers movie, released by Lionsgate in March 2017.

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the American debut of Power Rangers with this exclusive collection of artwork, behind-the-scenes photos, interviews, and more.

And I'll repeat my initial reaction, because by God I still don't believe it.

This will make a great companion book to my (admittedly somewhat out-of-date) Sentai Encyclopedia.

And I'll also repeat one of my initial thoughts:

Wonder how big is the section on Tommy Oliver?
He'll have his own Volume.

This is cool and all, but I feel like we should all go into this with extremely low expectations.

Just some other works Insight has worked on in the past


These ones are from the Visual History line so this is more likely what you should expect.



They have ones for Assassin's Creed, TMNT, among others.

I expect to see a lot of Toei's art in this.

Yeah, even if the info in the guide is just the same stuff we've always known, it's gonna be pretty as fuck.

Okay wow, I definitely want this if they're going to be as cool looking as the other books Insight has done. Even if it's info we already know, just having a book full of cool photos like that would be rad as fuck.

This is exactly what I expected the last time this was brought up: a visual history photo book, not an encyclopedia.

Judging from Insight's previous work this is going to be a beautiful tome.

Well considering it's kind of instrumental to the creation of Power Rangers, I imagine quite a few.
