Happy Friday everyone!
And for me, it’s a particularly important one— if all goes well this weekend, I’ll start (lightly) walking again come Monday. After seven weeks on one leg…I truly cannot wait.
And on that front, it means I’m this close to being able to head out for conventions again. In fact, if all goes well I’ll actually be joining Ryan Parrott for Megacon in Orlando, FL May 19-22.
But more on summer conventions in a bit.
First up, let’s do a quick run through our latest releases including some new (limited time) Massive-Verse merch!
Radiant Black #14
This week saw the release of Radiant Black #14 which marks an escalation of sorts with regards to the YouTube supervillain creators, EpicFront, as well as the debut of the newest member of Marshall’s rogues,’ the weapon wielding crypto bro, SHEER. Who has his own ideas about how to take care of Radiant Black.
And speaking of, we’ve got some new merch! Available until #15 drops on June 15.
This is SHEER’s new business venture: Killing Radiant Black.
Link to store right here!
Rogue Sun #3
Last week saw the release of Rogue Sun #3 which features the beginnings of the investigation into who killed Marcus? Plus, some pretty heart wrenching scenes about dealing with parental loss. And some dope swamp action.
Oh, and next month’s issue 4 is a game changer. Remember Radiant Black 4? Yeah… you’re not going to want to miss this one.
Shift #2 featured in Image! #2 - Available May 18th
Coming up in IMAGE! #2, out May 25th, we have the second part of our four part SHIFT series. This month I’m joined by Francesco Manna, Danilo Beyruth with colors by Marcelo Costa. And as you can see here, the EpicFront operation is still… getting off the ground.
Final Order Cutoff
Radiant Black #15 - Last Call to order on May 23rd
The onslaught of new villains continues as Radiant Black faces off against…Blaze? From C.O.W.L.?
Meanwhile, an unauthorized Radiant Black fan film is being shot in Lockport. When Marshall heads over to offer some friendly advice, he just might face his greatest enemy of all: creative license.
As usual, you can pre-order these at your local comic book store, or through our website at blackmarket.la.
Get A Real Job Podcast
I hopped on Entrepreneur.com’s Get a Real Job podcast this week, which was a blast. Also, the whole series is a great listen— anything that has Ken Burns and Terry Crews in the same playlist is awesome in my book.
Okay, as I mentioned up top and in the last newsletter, I’m just about to get back on the road for the summer convention season. And after not being able to walk for two months? I can’t wait.
We’ve got some really fun things to announce over the coming weeks as far as SDCC and Chicago, but for the time being… we’re just going to say, you may want to save the date ;)
Probably worth mentioning, I may be joined by a few team members in San Diego and Chicago...
Megacon May 19-22 in Orlando, FL
SDCC July 21-24 in San Diego, CA*
Galaxy Con July 29-31 in Raleigh, NC
C2E2 August 5-7 in Chicago, IL**
*Cool Things Planned
**Very Cool Things Planned
That’s it for now. On and if you haven’t yet, check out the return of Radiant Radio! New episode soon. Like, next newsletter soon!
I’m a little late to comment but I’m stoked to see you at Megacon, if you do end up coming! I recently got into comics thanks to my wife and Radiant Black is the only comic to give me that fun superhero thrill I imagine I’d have gotten if I grew up with them. Oh and any chance you’d bring any copies of that exclusive blacklight #10?
