Graphic Novel Sequel to Power Rangers Movie Announced

A sequel to the upcoming Power Rangers reboot movie has already been announced, Comic Bookreports. But the sequel will be in the form of a graphic novel. The comic-book follow-up to the 2017 movie is called Power Rangers: Aftershock.

The graphic novel will hit bookstores and comic shops on March 29, 2017, five days after the movie's release. A cover featuring images from the movie will adorn the graphic novels in bookstores, while graphic novels in comic shops will have an illustrated cover. The book will be 96 pages long and will cost $14.99.

The book will be written by Ryan Parrot and drawn by Lucas Werneck. The illustrated cover will be done by Greg Smallwood. Here's the official synopsis for the graphic novel:

"From the publisher of the critically acclaimed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic series comes an original story set in the universe of the upcoming Power Rangers feature film. This explosive, all-new tale picks up immediately after the events of Lionsgate's highly anticipated movie, in theaters March 24, 2017. See the film, then deep dive into the continued adventures of Jason, Kimberly, Trini, Zack, and Billy! Written by Ryan Parrott (Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, Batman: Gates of Gotham) and illustrated by artist Lucas Werneck.

It's a little surprising to see a graphic novel sequel planned this early, but it'll be interesting to see how the two projects go together. Do you think you'll get the comic?
