PORTLAND, Ore. 07/21/2021 — Bestselling series Radiant Black by Kyle Higgins and Marcelo Costa is being rushed back to print again—for a second time, issue #5 has sold out completely at the distributor level. The Radiant Black #5, third printing will feature new cover art by Geraldo Borges and Costa.
"This was our biggest issue yet, and still, just the beginning," said Higgins. "Thank you to readers and retailers both for continuing to support this book, one of the only superhero books on stands where truly anything can happen."
This latest issue in the popular superhero series introduces to the team the critically acclaimed colorist Natália Marques and fan-favorite artist Eduardo Ferigato (Self/Made, The Trials of Ultraman) alongside Higgins and Costa.
Radiant Red remains at large. Red needs to be stopped before anyone else gets hurt. But after the events of issue #4 left Lockport—and the world—reeling, is Radiant Black up to the task? And will he be in this fight alone? Radiant Black #5 is an extra-length, explosively climactic conclusion to the first story arc of the series.
Radiant Black #5 third printing Cover A (Diamond Code JUN218650) and Radiant Black #5 third printing Cover B black & white 1:10 copy incentive (Diamond Code JUN218651) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, August 18.
Radiant Black #5 is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
