The release of RADIANT BLACK Issue 02 will have RADIANT RED front and center. But what is RADIANT RED? Is it a new character or a mysterious new form for RADIANT BLACK? Writer Kyle Higgins and artist Marcelo Costa continue their exciting new project this March via Image Comics! What is RADIANT BLACK?

From the website Radiant.Black:
Nathan Burnett has just turned thirty, and things aren’t great: He’s working (and failing) at two jobs, his credit card debt is piling up, and his only move… is moving back home with his parents.
But when Nathan discovers and unlocks the ethereal, cosmic RADIANT, he’s given the power to radically change his fortunes!
There’s just one problem: The powers don’t belong to him. And the COSMIC BEINGS who created them want them back…by any means necessary.
Three covers will be available for Issue 02.
- Cover A – Blue Headshot Cover by Marcelo Costa
- Cover B – Radiant Red with a bag of money (article’s featured image) by Diego Greco
- Cover C – Radiant Red helmet reflection by Rod Reis (1:25 variant)

We’re incredibly excited to talk about the upcoming Radiant Black comic book from former Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic writer Kyle Higgins and artist Marcelo Costa. The Radiant Black team has been busy showcasing snippets and previews for the first issue (which releases February 10th, 2021) and is getting rave reviews from some of the most notable names in the comic book industry (like Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead franchise).
The Radiant Black team has shared some of the character designs on Twitter via their @RadiantBlk account. We’ve decided to share them with you here as well.
Also of note – some fans have asked if Radiant Black takes place in the Image-Universe. To answer the question there is a panel from Issue 01 that features the answer in the background television screen.
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.
