It was always going to come to this: Radiant Black vs Radiant Red in a knock-down drag-out fight across the city of Lockport! And believe us when we say that after this fight, nothing will ever be the same again. For Lockport or for Radiant Black. We actually mean it.

    If you are sleeping on this series, I honestly feel like you are sleeping on a milestone in comics history. Radiant Black is changing and rearranging the game of the story.

    'Radiant Black' refuses to be "just another superhero comic." Higgins is sitting in his underground bunker petting the kitten on his lap and laughing maniacally at how he's about to blow readers' minds with one of the most unexpected twists in comics. Issue four upends the series confirming that readers cannot sit still for a minute as Higgins and Costa are determined to subvert expectations and the way superhero stories are told.  Read Full Review
