Fan-favourite creative team CHERISH CHEN, DAVID LAFUENTE & MIQUEL MUERTO return for a FIVE-ISSUE MINISERIES telling the next unmissable story from the world of RADIANT BLACK!

To her students, Satomi Sone is a diligent middle school teacher. To her fiancé and parents, she's the rock of their family. To the world, she's RADIANT RED, a criminal-turned-matter-absorbing superhero. But with a mysterious stranger in her classroom, a nosy reporter on her doorstep, and $2.5 million hidden in the air vents of her house, she's going to have to decide who she is, and quickly - before the world chooses for her.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 21, 2022

    What we do get in Radiant Red #1 is a look at Shen's personal life. We also are introduced to a pair of people snooping around including a reporter and someone of less scrupulous means who have a sudden interest in the bank robber. It looks like the past hasn't stayed buried, but I'm not sure I'll stick around for five issues to see where this one eventually leads. Read Full Review
