BOOM! Studios hardcover set to include 8-page prelude to Amy Jo Johnson's upcoming series.

Citing an overwhelming response to Amy Jo Johnson's confirmation of her upcoming "Power Rangers" comic series, BOOM! Studios and the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers star will offer an 8-page prelude story in the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Special.

The campaign was announced Tuesday as part of the Boom! Direct Reserve campaign's $250,000 stretch goal. The Kickstarter campaign hit that mark within less than 24 hours of launch. As of late Tuesday evening, the campaign sat at $604,639, just over $45,000 short of the stretch goal that would cause the book written by Johnson and Matt Hotson to go from an announcement to a reality.

Johnson played Kimberly Hart, the Pink Ranger, from 1993 to 1995 and reprised her role in "Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie." She transitioned into a busy career as an actress in shows like "Felicity" and "Flashpoint." In recent years, she has moved behind the camera, directing four short films, two features and an episode of "Superman and Lois."

“I want to thank the faithful Power Ranger community for the love and excitement from the announcement of my up-and-coming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book series! To kick it off, BOOM! has invited us to write a short story for this summer’s upcoming anthology special, which will introduce our re-imagined world of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! OG style!” Johnson said in a statement.
