‘Radiant Black’ #5 Winds Up The First Story Arc With A Little Help From Some Friends

by Olly MacNamee

Upcoming Radiant Black #5, welcomes artist Eduardo Ferigato (Self/Made, The Trials of Ultraman) and colourist Natália Marques to the wrap party for the ending of the first story arc of the new series. The issue is on sale next month and we get a first look at the issue, and the contributions of Ferigato and Marques to this issue.

Co-creator Kyle Higgins explained the additional support from Ferigato and Marques:

“I’ve been working with Eduardo and Natália on different projects for quite some time now.  In fact, I first met Marcelo… when he was coloring Eduardo’s work. With the big twist at the end of issue 4, we knew we wanted to give the issue the space it needed to properly deal with the fallout. Eduardo is one of the best storytellers I’ve ever worked with, and as you’ll see in the below pages, has quite the flair for Cosmically Powered Action, rendered in beautiful contrasting palettes, by Natália. This issue has some more big twists and turns, and will be ramping straight into our big issue 6 Radiant Red spotlight. Trust me, after issue 5, you’ll definitely want to know his story.”

As for how the current story arc will finish:

“Radiant Black #5 concludes the first story arc of the series — and yet Radiant Red is still out there at large. Red needs to be stopped before anyone else gets hurt. But after the events of last issue left Lockport — and the world — reeling, is Radiant Black up to the task? And will he be in this fight alone?”

Radiant Black #5 will be available on Wednesday, June 16th from Image Comics
