We recently found out that artist Eduardo Ferigato (Trials of Ultraman) and colorist Natália Marques are joining Kyle Higgins and Marcelo Costa to tackle the supersized Radiant Black #5 that wraps up the first story arc in the phenomenal comic series. Now, we have a look at the work that these amazing artists are contributing thanks to Image Comics. The comic just feels so huge in this preview and I love it. Talking about bringing in Ferigato and Marques, Higgins said:
I’ve been working with Eduardo and Natália on different projects for quite some time now. In fact, I first met Marcelo… when he was coloring Eduardo’s work. With the big twist at the end of issue 4, we knew we wanted to give the issue the space it needed to properly deal with the fallout. Eduardo is one of the best storytellers I’ve ever worked with, and as you’ll see in the below pages, has quite the flair for Cosmically Powered Action, rendered in beautiful contrasting palettes, by Natália. This issue has some more big twists and turns, and will be ramping straight into our big issue 6 Radiant Red spotlight. Trust me, after issue 5, you’ll definitely want to know his story.
Here’s the synopsis for Radiant Black #5:
Radiant Black #5 concludes the first story arc of the series—and yet Radiant Red is still out there at large. Red needs to be stopped before anyone else gets hurt. But after the events of last issue left Lockport—and the world—reeling, is Radiant Black up to the task? And will he be in this fight alone?
I cannot wait to read Radiant Black #5 on June 16!
