It feels like ages ago when the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book was a national top-seller thanks to the immensely popular Shattered Grid storyline. Fans were treated to a new villain – an evil Tommy going by the name Lord Drakkon – and a world shattered by his messing with the morphin grid. At the time we went out on a limb and called the work Kyle Higgins did as some of the best stories in the history of the Power Rangers brand.
The work that Kyle Higgins did left an impression on the Power Rangers brand forever. Lord Drakkon is a staple character now and likely will be for years to come. But it would appear that Power Rangers also left an impression on Kyle, as Thursday saw the announcement of his brand new comic Radiant Black via Image Publishing.
Not much is known about Radiant Black as of yet – we know that the power that Nathan holds comes from a black hole and that the power doesn’t belong to him – it belongs to some cosmic beings who are going to want it back. And we can’t wait to find out more!
Radiant Black is written by Kyle Higgins and features artwork by Marcelo Costa. Lettering is done by Becca Carey and editing duties fall to Power Rangers fan at-large Michael Busuttil, known to fans for his work on the Ranger Danger Podcast. Radiant Black Issue 01 releases February 10th 2021 at comic book stores everywhere.
Stay tuned next week as we take an in-depth look at Issue 01 and why this comic absolutely, positively must be on your pull-list.
