Power Rangers Meets Invincible? Exclusive Preview of Image Comics’ Radiant BlackDecember 10, 2020
“I’ve loved superheroes my entire life, the narrative exploits of Spider-Man, Nightwing, Daredevil, Superman, Batman and countless others serving as equal parts wish fulfillment and a safety net,” Higgins told IGN. “There’s no way I would be where I am today without superheroes. Which is what makes it so incredibly exciting to build RADIANT BLACK, a superhero for a new time, a new generation and—hopefully—a superhero who resonates for others the way that my favorite heroes resonated for me.”
“It’s very hard to put into words how amazing it is, as someone who loves both superheroes and Sentai, to see the way that RADIANT BLACK has come to life,” said Costa. “Even at this early stage, my email and timelines are filled with the incredible work of professionals and fans alike, who have been gracious enough to share their takes on RADIANT BLACK. I’m so excited and honored to be building a new superhero for a new generation.”
