Segment: Interview: Frank Gogol Power Rangers Unlimited: Edge of Darkness #1. 

  1. Frank, last time we spoke was November 2020, and I believe this project might have been around the corner. How long has Power Rangers Unlimited: Edge of Darkness been in the works?
  2. Were you a fan at all of Power Rangers before taking on this project?
  3. The Phantom Ranger has been a mystery to fans for over 20 years; did you feel any pressure in peeling back some of the character’s layers?
  4. This issue features a familiar character, Rita, what was it like writing this version of the character?
  5. I kind of love the concept of the Phantom Ranger and him being a space-knight since we’ve seen it work so well with the Mandolorian. That got me thinking, was there any novels, films, or TV that you love that have similar themes to this issue?
  6. When writing an extra-sized issue like this, do you approach writing and plotting differently than the usual 20 page comic?
  7. Do you have a favorite Power Ranger?
  8. I loved the epic nature of this issue, let’s say a famous director and/or studio took on this project, who would you want producing?
