Radiant Black #2 Rushed Back To Print As Sales Skyrocket


The much buzzed about Radiant Black #2 by Kyle Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Ultraman, C.O.W.L.) and Marcelo Costa has sold out in a snap at the distributor level. This issue will be rushed back to print in order to keep up with the growing demand and the second printing will feature a new cover by artist Tom Reilly.

Yesterday: Nathan found an alien artifact that turned him into a superhero. Today? His dad says he has to get a job, so driving for rideshare company Drivr it is. Oh, and in Radiant Black #2 he discovers that there’s also someone else out there robbing banks—with powers just like his.

Radiant Black has been compared to Higgins’ previous work revitalizing the Power Rangers brand with his thirty plus issue run on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including the smash hit Shattered Grid, for a contemporary superhero mentality similar to the iconic Invincible series by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley. Kirkman himself calls Radiant Black, “the perfect superhero comic for anyone missing Invincible.”
