In 2016, Boom! Studios launched their first comic based on the Power Rangers franchise. Based on Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, the comic updated the setting to the modern day and featured more mature writing.

From there... lots of things happened, but the core concept of a more mature take on the Power Rangers remains, while the comics also began to expand their universe a lot more, with a spinoff series, one-shots and creating original characters that would go on to appear in other media.

During this, occassional miniseries and graphic novels were also published, which connect to the TV shows' continuity proper.

    Power Rangers: The Psycho Path 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5988cc12_d8a4_4f67_928c_a32f9391d3a8.jpeg
Power Rangers: The Psycho Path is a 2019 graphic novel sequel to Power Rangers in Space & Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, with Andros and Karone facing the revived Psycho Rangers.
  • Adaptation Species Change: The Psychos never appeared un-morphed, except when they went One-Winged Angel, implying those were their only forms anyway (although Red, Yellow and Black were able to disguise themselves as humans). This shows that they are Human Aliens, with Pink in particular being a purple skinned space babe.
  • Back from the Dead: The Psycho Rangers once again have somehow returned to life and Psycho Green has also been resurrected along with them. Turns out Green survived his battle on the moon in 1969, being buried. Once he awakened, he used the data cards to revive the other Psychos.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Pink is the first Psycho to turn on Green in favour of Karone, because the latter brought her to the infirmary when she was injured, and wouldn't let her fight until she was healed again.
  • Both Sides Have a Point: Andros is horrified at Karone for trying to help the Psychos. He’s not wrong that they’re dangerously insane and one of them actually killed a Ranger but Karone is also correct that they are just as much victims as she was and deserved a chance at redemption like her.
  • Brother–Sister Team: Andros and Karone. More prominent this time than in the Beyond the Grid arc.
  • Call-Back: Once again, Karone pretends to undergo a Face–Heel Turn to infiltrate the villain's ship. Especially poignant because the last time she did that is what led to her creating the Psychos in the first place.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Andros reminds Karone of how the Psychos' actions resulted in Kendrix's death.
    • Psycho Red, Black and Yellow's un-morphed forms resemble their human disguises from "Silence Is Golden".
  • A Day in the Limelight: For the Psycho Rangers, including Psycho Green. Also for Karone and Andros.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Green reprogramming the Psychos to have a sense of family and loyalty just ended up creating contradictions that made them even more human and thus more likely to choose good.
  • Meaningful Rename: Karone gives the Psychos the opportunity to choose names for themselves. Pink is the first to do so, naming herself Nokrea. The others are Virgil (Red), Axe (Blue) and Photon (Black). Yellow chooses not to rename herself.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: Karone highlights how the Psychos were arguably like her; brainwashed and forced into serving evil, and thus they deserve the same chance she did to choose good.
  • "What Now?" Ending: Karone reveals she spared the Psychos, and let them leave to live their lives. The final scene shows them preparing to fly off into space, unsure of what their future awaits.

    Power Rangers: Sins of the Future 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fe99db71_c865_41da_b37b_ccb92c05bc3b.jpeg
Power Rangers: Sins of the Future is a 2020 graphic novel sequel to Power Rangers Time Force starring Wes and Jen.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Jen manages to fix everything and creates Outpost One, an HQ that exists outside of time where she and Wes will be able to date without breaking Time Force rules.
  • Inspector Javert: Time Force Black seems to be one of the antagonists but she’s part of the heroic Time Force who is opposed to the admittedly reckless Time-Travel Romance between Wes and Jen. We’re all rooting for those two, but still.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Time Force Black is actually Alex's sister Cyra, and she has been trying to prevent Alex's death to no luck.
  • Stable Time Loop: Jen realizes the Black Time Force Morpher exists outside of time and she has no choice but to give the Morpher to Cyra. When she does, she gives Cyra advice that prevents the bad timeline from ever happening.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Wes and Jen, once again.
