The artwork is clean with sharp line work and powerful colors. Daniele Di Nicuolo and Walter Baiamonte are ideal when crafting a beautiful world one that fits the tone and make up of the Power Rangers but also drives the emotion and action to its full potential.
Lines and shapes hold a basic quality being complete and solid. Detail upon the characters and background is kept to a minimum for the extra lines are not needed to express the nature of what is happening.
The main star of the comic book would be the colors that pop in every panel and scene of the issue. Colors blend tend to blend upon characters for flesh tone and light sources.

He is stealing the powers from Rangers of these unique timelines and adding it to his own arsenal. Who and what timeline will be targeted next?
