What is MMPR’s “Darkest Hour” storyline about?

An official description for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #111 reads as follows: “Mistress Vile has won, or so it seems, with control of the Grid and Dark Specter’s infections spreading through the universe! As if an epic battle between Vile and the Vessel wasn’t enough, the separated and stranded Rangers receive help from the last team they’d expect, but it may not be the help they were hoping for … In the tradition of Shattered Grid and perfectly timed with the 30th anniversary of Power Rangers, writer Melissa Flores and Simona Di Gianfelice kick off the event they’ve been building to for the last year that will forever change the Power Rangers universe!”

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #111 goes on sale Wednesday, Aug. 23 from BOOM! Studios.
