Power Rangers Super Samurai #2

Papercutz (October, 2012)

“Terrible Toys”
WRITER: Stefan Petrucha
ARTIST: Paulo Henrique
COLORIST: Laurie E. Smith
LETTERER: Bryan Senka
ASSOCIATE EDITOR: Michael Petranek

The latest Nighlok is actually composed of smaller monsters. The Rangers must find a weak spot to defeat Shador, and unbeknownst to them Bulk and Spike have accidentally made that weak spot.

What they got right: An improvement over the previous GN. While they used captions to explain certain details rather than clumsy dialog, they took more time on the story. Shador was a great idea for a Nighlok and easier to do in comics form. Also, we get to see more of Antonio, who happens to be my favorite Samurai Ranger. Even Bulk and Spike actually serve a purpose in the story.

What they got wrong: Outside of the final battle taking place in a toy factory and one of the Shadors hiding in a present for a kid, the “toy” aspect is barely there and seems forgotten altogether half-way through the story.

Recommendation: A good comic for Power Rangers fans to get into comics.

Gold Ranger, rescuer of teddy bears.
