Hello Power Morphicon Convention Attendees, Members, and Fans:
Please join us in welcoming a brand new year, and what we hope is a better year for everyone. While we over here at PMC were optimistic, the current state of affairs in the health climate has other ideas. Due to the wild spread of COVID-19 across California, we have made the difficult realization that even by June 2021, it will not be safe for Power Morphicon to gather and conduct the show we want to have. We have made the decision to postpone Power Morphicon to August 26th – 28th 2022 in Pasadena, California. While we will have still missed our 2020 event, this 2022 date puts the show back on track for its biennial schedule. All memberships will be extended to the new 2022 event date.
In spite of this event postponement, Power Morphicon will host a virtual event in June 2021, on the event’s intended date and memberships will have full access to this Virtual PMC.These events include guest autographs, personal meet and greets, online panels, and more. We hope everyone bears with us in this extraordinary time. The PMC staff is working hard to build a fun, safe, and entertaining event for everyone in 2022.
THE UNLIMITED POWER ERA BEGINS HERE WITH A NEW TEAM – BUT WHO IS THE NEW GREEN RANGER?
The new Mighty Morphin team is on a collision course with an even deadlier Lord Zedd, who has a new mission and a new motivation – one that will change everything you thought you knew about our heroes! Collects Mighty Morphin #1-4.
Astronema is one of the most popular Power Rangers villains ever and her true origin is revealed for the first time in a one-shot directly connected to the events of Mighty Morphin and Power Rangers!
Before she became a Power Ranger, a young girl named Karone was kidnapped by bounty hunters and brainwashed into the assassin known as Astronema by two of the greatest threats in the galaxy – Dark Specter and Ecliptor.
But what is Dark Spector’s true plan…and what does it mean for the new Mighty Morphin & Power Rangers teams?
Acclaimed author L.L. McKinney (A Blade So Black) and artist Simone Ragazzoni (Power Rangers: Drakkon New Dawn) present a powerful new story that no Power Rangers fan can miss.
