046 BACK TO BLACKLIGHT
Radiant Black 24, New Black Market Blacklight Editions, and Supermassive!
It’s been a jam packed week at BMN with a whole bunch of projects hitting similar points at similar times— a lot of the things we’ve been working on around the clock for the last couple weeks will start to be revealed this week and then so much of what we’ve been up to will start to make sense!
And the first part of that cryptic tease comes courtesy of this week’s Radiant Black #24! This issue is titled Return to Existence and continues our trend of existential black hole issues done in blacklight! So, as we did on issue 10, we’ve also made a limited fluorescent edition of Radiant Black #24. I’ve got pictures!
Marcelo and Igor went hard this issue. The book has some big twists and turns and features an ending that I feel like people will be talking about.
As far as the blacklight edition goes, it wasn’t a huge print run and like issue 10, we don’t have any plans to reprint it (it’s super expensive). So if you haven’t ordered one from your local shop yet I recommend grabbing one on Wednesday. Or, you can take a look at an even cooler version we’re doing ourselves, featuring a fluorescent edition of our 1:25 Jim Mahfood cover!
We’ve made 175 of these, sans comps, and they’ll be on sale for $50 each on Wednesday. We’ll also have some packages available that include copies of our out of print blacklight edition of issue 10 and our even more rare Black Market Narrative blacklight edition.
Be on the lookout for a newsletter with the link when they go live!
This week saw the release of Deep Cuts #1, a book that Joe Clark and I have been working on since about this time in 2019. It’s the first issue in a series that we could not be more proud of and fortunately, one that has garnered some very nice articles about it. I’m going to include one here from Comic Book Resources because I think it does a great job talking about what Danilo, Igor, and Hassan are doing on these pages that— frankly— are some of the most striking comic book pages that I’ve ever been a part of.
We’re putting the finishing touches on Deep Cuts #2 right now and once again, Igor Monti has knocked it out of the park. Take a look!
Supermassive - FOC
Last year we did SUPERMASSIVE, our first Massive-Verse crossover that debuted Inferno Girl Red and Rogue Sun. This year… we’re doing it again! This time, with a few new characters and a very different setting. We’re also joined by some old friends who could not be more excited to be working with again— our partners on Power Rangers events, Daniele Di Nucolo and Walter Baiamonte. It’s a Power Rangers: Shattered Grid reunion!
A doorway has opened. Beyond it lies the Holy Grail. Yes, that Holy Grail. But why are RADIANT BLACK, ROGUE SUN, and THE DEAD LUCKY all so desperate to get their hands on it—and who is the mysterious woman who stands in their way?
Massive-Verse architects KYLE HIGGINS, RYAN PARROTT, MELISSA FLORES & MAT GROOM are joined by superstar art team DANIELE DI NICUOLO & WALTER BAIAMONTE (Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, Seven Secrets) for a 50-page one-shot crossover event!
Monday is your final day to pre-order!
The Black Market
ALERT: NO/ONE Foils
And for anyone who missed them when they debuted last week, we’ve put up some more copies of our latest NO/ONE foils! We’ve made 175 copies of each, sans comps.
First up— our Matteo Scalera foil for the sold-out NO/ONE #1 second printing!
And we also have our Black Market Narrative Tom Reilly foil for NO/ONE #2!
Okay, that’s going to do it for me today! Next week— things get crazy. Seriously.
Hell yeah so excited!!!!!!
Deep Cuts looks fantastic. Ever since it was teased back in 2021, I’ve been wondering what this book will be like and that it’s finally out and about is fantastic. Can’t wait to see what you, Joe, Igor and the rest of the Deep Cuts crew have awaiting us.
