032 Massive Morphicon
The Massive-Verse Visits Morphicon, Radiant Black 18 Preview, and Starchild Props Helmet Now Available!
This weekend, along with Ryan Parrott, Melissa Flores and Mr. Massive-Verse himself, Michael Busuttil, we’re taking the Massive-Verse to Morphicon!
Four years ago, we put on a live table read Experience of Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, bringing back over a dozen actors to play their characters again— some for the first time in 25 years—which lead to some truly epic moments like this one:
This year, we’re not doing anything quite this ambitious…but we do have some Massive plans.
Ryan and I will have our booths setup at 416 and 418, with Melissa floating in between us and her exhibitor booth. We’ll have all sorts of fun stuff— paperbacks, variants, pins, blacklights and new prints— plus a few more QR codes that might be worth scanning.
Then on Saturday at 2pm Michael will be hosting an awesome intro to the Massive-Verse panel, where we’ll be talking about the universe origins, our influences, and a nice intro on who all these fun new characters like Radiant Black, The Dead Lucky, Rogue Sun, and Inferno Girl Red are.
Plus, we’ll have some giveaways and more surprises.
Hope to see you there!
Starchild Props Radiant Black Helmet - Now Available!
If you’ve been following us on social at all (@KyleDHiggins, @radiantblk, @blackmarketnar) you may have seen this stunning new helmet courtesy of Starchild Props. As of now, I have the only one (until I send it to our Black Market Narrative raffle winner— thanks for your patience!) but that’s about to change. As of this morning, The Radiant Black Helmet is now available!
I can tell you first hand, the finished piece is absolutely stunning. Huge thanks to Andrea and Starchild Props for their artistry and ingenuity in bringing this to life!
Radiant Black #17
This week, Radiant Black 17 hit stands—if you haven’t picked up your copy yet I highly recommend grabbing one before the spoilers get you.
Plus, everyone really needs to experience Wendell first hand. Especially before the epicness that is issue 18.
Radiant Black #17 Exclusive Item
And with a new issue comes a new issue exclusive— we want to change it up every now and then and the awesome folks over at Threadless are doing puzzles now! Below is a photo of the smallest, 100-piece version that Ryan from CGN did. Being able to identify the pieces using the different villain costumes made this a really great option for our first go!
We’ve had a lot of fun doing these exclusives each month. In fact, in the midst of our six-week convention tour Michael and I have been blown away by the number of people we’ve met wearing our Radiant Black gear.
So, with a few more big shows this year— including this weekend’s Massive-Verse at Morphicon— we wanted to do something to celebrate and give both new fans and old a chance to grab any gear they may have missed.
So, the existential vault is open! All prior exclusives are NOW AVAILABLE! For a limited time only! Then, back to Existence they go!
Grab yours now!
Radiant Black #18 (FOC this Monday!)
Monday is your last chance to pre-order Radiant Black 18, our introduction to Wendell AKA Radiant Yellow. This one is really, really special. Joining me are Laurence Holmes and Stefano Simeone with Becca Carey on letters and as you can see from these preview pages…we’re really taking a swing here.
Welcome to Gary, Indiana. Home of Wendell George.
Okay, that’s it for me! Until next time…

Yo, is #17 out? Local comic shop in Hawaii says it hasn’t been released yet…
Just found your comic and spent the last 3 weeks buying up all the back issues for a ridiculous amount of money lol
Anyway, hope you can post when issues are released so fans can follow up w our local shops…
