During Eisner Week '16, it was brought to my attention that BOOM Studios was releasing PINK, a stand alone comic mini-series featuring Kimberly Hart, otherwise known as the original (US) Pink Ranger.
Now, almost 2 months of waiting and May is here... sorta, FINALLY, geez!
A lot of it has been hush-hush, obviously, and that only adds to the anticipation of getting my claws on the pages. I mean, so many questions float around in the ol' noggin, right? When you consider how old the character is and what the Pink Ranger represented way back then. Cut to now - at a time when representation of women is on a more positive uptake. This new revitalization, if only through a mini-series, begs the question: What kind of story are they trying to tell?
Maybe it's a "Woman behind the mask story". Or is it 90's Kimmie, with high school issues to face? Maybe an older version of Kimberly, struggling to pay bills 'cause she flies in a robot pterodactyl all day... I just don't know, but... I'm excited either way!
Here's an Exclusive: L.A. TIMES article with a more details on PINK!
