There’s only a little bit left of the Mighty Morphin/Power Rangers’ Eltarian War event. Through Mighty Morphin #16, it continues to be a great read for longtime fans of the original power rangers. So much history has been added to this property in this event, and things aren’t wrapped up just yet.

However, this issue does mark the end of Parrott’s run on the Mighty Morphin title. He’ll still be in the general universe with Power Rangers, but we’re not going to see him working with Tommy, Kimberly and Earth’s rangers monthly going forward. He’s displayed a great feel for these characters. At least he’ll still work on Jason, Trini and Zack for the foreseeable future.

Parrott left things on quite the note, providing the return of one of the properties’ more interesting characters in Mighty Morphin #16 and an epic battle ending. But there’s still one fight that may not be done just yet. We’ve seen some of these characters in the Power Rangers universe can hold a grudge for a rather long time.

As for the art, Marco Renna has had to do a lot with each issue of this event. He is yet to disappoint on this title, never mind the Eltarian War. Unfortunately, it looks like someone else will take over for Renna after Mighty Morphin #16. The pairing of Parrott and Renna has provided a well-paced book with meaningful developments in this universe, along with fun stories. This event will be the calling card of their run, but they were excelling with this title well before the Eltarian War.
