How Easy It Is To Slip Away... How Easier It Is To Stay Away... The MMPR Boom Moratorium Continues

Two months into my self-imposed moratorium on Power Rangers comics, especially after word broke that Drakkon was making a comeback in one issue, which turned out to be a flashback thing or something. But just the fact that we're teasing a possible return leaves no hope going forward.

Here's the funny thing about this whole deal, right? I dropped the series when that news broke... and I don't miss it. It didn't leave some hole waiting to be filled again. It just went away. And I just went on with my day.

I keep track of the reviews and reactions to this thing; this is the only way I keep track of things going on in that realm of the Power Rangers franchise. And at some point, I wonder if I ever really want to come back. This moratorium is supposed to last six months. More often than not, I find myself breaking these self-imposed moratorium because curiosity gets the better of me.

Could this be the first one that sticks? And not only stick, but go beyond that period?

I've heard good things about the current run and I'm sure they're better stories until they need to dive back into the Drakkon drudge. But strangely enough, I don't feel like I'm missing anything. In fact, I know I'm not missing anything.

The last time I felt this way was back in the mid-2000s, when I no longer had a regular outlet to catch airings of PR... but this time, it's different. Or is it?

Am I losing interest in this franchise in ways that I might not be aware of?

It's possible. Anything is possible with the power of Ninjetti.

But I don't have Ninjetti. I have a beat-up notebook that I'm using as a journal to write these quick entries from my bed in the hopes of transposing them to the blog... assuming they ever happen.

I guess we'll have to let it play out and... *sigh* see where it goes.

Fuck, now I'm using WWE cliches for posts about Power Rangers.
