Radiant Black is an incredible comic series from Kyle Higgins and Marcelo Costa. While fans are patiently waiting for the third issue to release later this month, Image Comics has released a little tease for Radiant Black #6 which will release this July. The issue will be a one-shot that explores the history of the mysterious villain Radiant Red and will feature Cherish Chen as guest co-writer and art by David “Darko” Lafuente.
Who’s under the helmet of Radiant Red? Radiant Black #6 promises fans a red-hot new story that challenges everything you think you know about the man beneath the mask!
Talking to io9 about the issue, Higgins said:
From the very beginning, one of the things that Michael, Marcelo and I were quite excited about was finding opportunities to bring some different creative voices to Radiant Black. Now, with issue 6, we have our first chance to do that. Darko Lafuente has been one of my favorite artists in the industry, since his stunning run on Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man. Cherish Chen is a newer comics writer who has absolutely blown me away with her voice and command of tone. We’re so excited to welcome them both to the Radiant Black family.
I am so pumped for this new issue! Main cover art for Radiant Black #6 is by Lafuente with variants from Kira Okamoto and a 1:25 incentive by Doaly. Fans will be available to read on July 21 from local comic shops, comiXology (affiliate link) or wherever you like to buy comics.
