Climactic New Radiant Black #5 Sells-out, Rushed Back to Print

Bestselling series Radiant Black by Kyle Higgins and Marcelo Costa is being rushed back to print yet again—this time issue #5 has sold out completely at the distributor level. This reprint will feature new cover art by Costa which will pay homage to an iconic Invincible fight scene.

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 second printing (Diamond Code MAY218586) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 21.

Radiant Black #5 is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
