Radiant Black Series Announces Unique “Half Arc” Storyline
The world of comics is about to witness an unprecedented twist as the Radiant Black series unveils its latest narrative revelation. In a move that promises to redefine the superhero genre, Image Comics, in collaboration with writer Kyle Higgins, is gearing up to release Issue #26 of the Radiant Black series alongside a companion, Issue #26.5, on October 25. What sets this apart, you ask? The Radiant Black “Half Arc” storyline, which will explore the intriguing concept of two beings bearing the name “Radiant Black” across two distinct timelines.
Two Beings, Two Timelines
In this groundbreaking narrative, readers will be transported to a dual timeline where two versions of the enigmatic “Radiant Black” exist. This storytelling masterstroke is designed to provide a fresh perspective on the challenges faced by these two incarnations of the same character. While one perspective will delve into the main character’s journey, the other will provide invaluable insight into the experiences of the alternate Radiant Black. What’s even more astounding is that each storyline will be brought to life by its dedicated art team, promising a visually captivating experience.
