021 Massive-Verse 2022 Kickoff
Rogue Sun, Supermassive Foils, Radiant Black and Red, plus MERCH DROP ALERT!
We’re back! And now we’re only T-Minus five days and counting until the official kickoff of Massive-Verse Phase Two, with the debut of our 54 page superhero crossover special, SUPERMASSIVE.
SUPERMASSIVE is, of course, also the debut of Rogue Sun and Inferno Girl Red.
Pre-orders closed a few weeks ago, but don’t worry— if you didn’t order yourself a copy, your store should have some. We also, in this case, overprinted ever so slightly, anticipating some really fun word of mouth.
In five days, you’ll see why :)
And speaking of Rogue Sun, pre-orders closed last week for issue 1. But you can snag a copy here.
Radiant Black 12 — PINK!
Also speaking of last week, Radiant Black 12— our Radiant Pink spotlight issue— came out, featuring the creative team-up of myself, Meghan Camarena, French Carlomagno, Mattia Iacono, and Diego Sanches. Super duper proud of this one. Check out this killer Radiant Pink intro spread!
Oh, and we’ve got a cool, exclusive notebook!
Available only until issue 13 drops in March! Make sure to grab yours while you can!

Supermassive Foil Edition
On Tuesday morning (SUPERMASSIVE Eve), we’ll be dropping one more cover for SUPERMASSIVE— this one is in partnership with our convention partners at Comic Sketch Art and will feature the Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion and Marcelo Costa virgin cover, wrapped in foil.
This was originally intended to be a 500 copy print run, but we were updated earlier this week that due to a printer error and a shortage with foil, we’re only getting 150 copies (sans AP comps). So, this is by far the smallest print run we’ve made.
100 of these will be triple signed by myself, Ryan Parrott and Greg Capullo, with a COA or CGC (no grade guaranteed) option.
MERCH DROP ALERT
Finally, while you can’t snag yourself a foil edition today, I’m happy to report that we have gotten a new shipment from our multiversal couriers to bring you… our next Blacklight Edition drop.
We’ve got ten available right now.
And just a quick note on the CGC editions— we’ve submitted all our books, but things are still quite backed up. As such, we could still be several months out on delivering the CGC editions.
Okay, I think that’s a good place to leave things today! Next week, we go SUPERMASSIVE. Until then—
Los Angeles, CA
If you keep giving us these 2d game covers Im going to keep asking for a beatem up or a fighting game of Radiant Black, Rogue Sun, and Inferno Girl Red and whatever comes out later.
By chance I got the mystery box in November and it did or did not have a usb drive with hidden files, what application would I open it with or not open it with?
