Not since 1998 have these two powerhouse ninja groups crossed over. In the fourth episode of Power Rangers in Space named Shell Shock, they meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the series Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. In that episode one of the Power Ranger’s enemies brainwashed the Turtles to infiltrate and take over the ship. An electric storm erases the brainwashing and the Power Rangers return the Turtles to New York.
BOOM! Studios has worked out a deal with Hasbro, IDW, and Nickelodeon to bring these to awesome ninja teams together again, but this time in a comic book. This team up of the Ninja Turtles and the Power Rangers will be a five issue mini-series called Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The premise for the mini-series is Green Power Ranger, Tommy Oliver, goes missing. The Power Rangers track him down to New York. When they find him they discover he has teamed up with Shredder. Luckily they also run into the Ninja Turtles and find they have a common enemy. If you are fan of either franchise you will definitely want to check this mini-series out. Issue #1 is scheduled to be on the shelves December 4th.
