Power Rangers will cross over with Usagi Yojimbo and Space Usagi returns in new books from BOOM! Studios and Dark Horse Comics, as the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Usagi Yojimbo continues.

The over-sized Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Usagi Yojimbo one-shot from BOOM! Studio will be written by Ryan Parrott, with art by Shawn Daley and colors by James Fenner.  The set-up for the story is that during a Rita Repulsa attack, the Rangers’ morphers hurl them back to the Edo era of Japan.  Main cover is by Taurin Clarke, with variants by Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai with colors by Emi Fujii, Jared Cullum, Goni Montes, and Takeshi Miyazawa.  Street date is September 25.

Space Usagi: White Star Rising is the second Space Usagi arc, recolored for this edition, plus a back-up feature by Julie Sakai and Stan Sakai featuring the Space Usagi character Akemi.  Each issue of the three-issue miniseries will feature a variant cover by Peach Momoko.  In this second adventure, the descendant of Usagi Yojimbo in the far-flung future continues to defend the Shirohoshi clan.  Street date for issue #1 is October 23 at $4.99 MSRP.

Dark Horse released the Usagi Yojimbo 40th Anniversary Reader this week (see "’40th Anniversary Reader’").
