DC Comics and BOOM! Studios are currently teaming up on one crossover mini-series which unites the worlds of Gotham Academy and Lumberjanes. With Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy soon wrapping up with its sixth issues, the two publishers now have plans to unite again for yet another crossover. Debuting this winter will be a 6-issue mini-series uniting the Justice League with Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

The crossover will be written by Tom Taylor (Injustice: Gods Among Us) with art by Stephen Byrne (Green Arrow, JLA Rebirth: The Ray). Like other DC Comics crossovers before it, including Batman/TMNT and Star Trek/Green Lantern, this crossover will involve characters being thrown into alternate dimensions in order to justify the presence of both teams in one comic. Here’s the official synopsis thanks to DCComics.com:

Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove when the Power Rangers’ Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged! Zack the Black Ranger is flung into an alternate universe full of citizens possessing outrageous powers and wearing strange costumes. Will Jason the Red Ranger, Trini the Yellow Ranger, Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Billy the Blue Ranger and Tommy the Green Ranger be able to get to Zack in time to save him from Batman?

Gotham Academy: Second Semester artist Karl Kerschl will be responsible for the series’ standard covers, though alternative variant covers from multiple artists will also be available for each issue, teaming up two members of each respective team:

  • Batman/Pink Ranger variant by Dan Hipp
  • Cyborg/Blue Ranger variant by Dustin Nguyen
  • The Flash/Black Ranger variant by Yasmine Putri
  • Green Lantern John Stewart/Yellow Ranger variant by Marguerite Sauvage
  • Superman/Green Ranger variant by Chris Sprouse
  • Wonder Woman/Red Ranger variant by Marcus To

Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 is currently set to hit store shelves and digital platforms January 11, 2017.
