    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 18, 2021

    Radiant Black #7 kicks off its second story arc by continuing to upend tokusatsu tropes while also building upon the series' mythology. This series continues to be one of the best superhero books on the stands and serves as a harbinger of things to come for Higgins' Black Market Narrative creative collective. With the first volume of Radiant Black on sale this week, I highly recommend giving it a read if you haven't already. Read Full Review

    Jumping back to a story after a break in the issues is dangerous, particularly in new titles like Radiant Black but the team is energised by new writing and artistic talents leading to the amazing news that this issue has sold out completely at the Distributor level leading to a fresh cover by Mateus Santolouco.

    Radiant Black continues its excellent storytelling and world building with issue #7. This is definitely one of the funnest comics on the stands right now.

    We pick up right after the events of issue #5 when the Radiants encounter a mysterious enemy (who I’m calling Glitch for now) that is hunting them for their powers. We don’t get any new background on who this powerful enemy is but we do get get an awesome showdown between him and the Radiants. It’s so much fun to see their powers displayed, especially as a team.

    The biggest jumping out of my seat moment is when Radiant Pink accidentally teleports herself and Marshall to space! We get to see them land in the middle of what seems to be an intergalactic war bet more

    This series just keeps getting more intriguing, insane & impressive with every issue. I think this is the passion project for Kyle Higgins i think because it feels like power rangers but with more traditional sci-fi elements. This issue proved just that. It's power rangers meets, idk, its just about this series & this issue that feels fresh & new. i really like what's done in here because we get more explanation about the other radiants but also more mystery. The banter between the group is great, the action is unique & it helps propel the story & character dynamics, etc.

    Just when I thought they were taking too much from Kirkmans Ant man, they go in a surprising direction. The series is on my must buy list

    Reviewing the seventh issue of Radiant Black and of all the books I've started reading in the last year this has seen some of the best growth in my opinion. When it first started I thought this was another of Image's overhyped books, but it's actually continued to get better with each issue. every issue seems to sell out in my area too, so I'm assuming I'm not alone in my appreciation for this book.
