Grammy Award winning musician Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi will make his comics debut alongside Eisner Award-nominated co-writer and Massive-Verse architect Kyle Higgins, breakout artists Marco Locati and Igor Monti, Eisner Award-winning letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, and editor Michael Busuttil in the forthcoming Moon Man. This all-new, ongoing series will launch in January 2024 from Image Comics, Black Market Narrative, and Mad Solar, kicking off the new year with an extra-length first issue and an accompanying mixtape from the Grammy Award-winning recording artist.
Moon Man follows Ramon Townsend, a man ready for a quiet life after gaining unexpected celebrity status for steering his ship and crew safely home from a near-disastrous moon mission. Whatever went wrong on that failed moon mission, whatever happened in the missing minutes the cameras didn’t capture, all Ramon really wants is to settle down back home in Cleveland. But those missing minutes hold an Earth-shattering secret—and, with all eyes turned to him, Ramon will soon find himself becoming something the world has never seen before.
Moon Man touches down with a truly out-of-this-world variant cover lineup, including superstars such as Rod Reis and Matt Taylor; Eisner Award winners Sanford Greene and Christian Ward; along with industry legends Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz.
Moon Man #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 31.
Known for pushing the envelope with unique twists, easter eggs, and multimedia tie-ins, the Massive-Verse’s Radiant Black, by Kyle Higgins, Marcelo Costa, Eduardo Ferigato, and Joe Clark, will have fans doing a double-take next month yet again—literally—with the release of two issues: Radiant Black #26 and the Radiant Black #26.5.
One storyline follows Marshall, one storyline puts the spotlight on Nathan, but both issues are a must-buy for readers to get the full experience. There are, after all, two sides to every story.
“Catalyst War” has been two years in the making and an event told across timelines featuring two different art teams telling two different stories each month. Both timelines are integral to the event featuring the choices of Marshall and Nathan and how those choices impact their worlds. By the end, readers will find out who will be Radiant Black going forward.
The “.5” storyline will run through Radiant Black #30 and Radiant Black #30.5 before hitting fans with another jaw-dropping plot twist.

Backer beware: Crowdfunding projects are not guaranteed to be delivered and/or delivered when promised. We always recommend to do your research before backing.
In 2021, an explosively successful Kickstarter campaign helped writer Mat Groom and artist Erica D’Urso deliver the 125-page graphic novel Inferno Girl Red: Book One–– which combined the high school super-heroic drama with the dynamic storytelling and world-building of Japanese tokusatsu superheroes, and the intrigue and relationship drama of British boarding school fiction. Now, they’re returning to Kickstarter to tell the next chapter in the story of legendary hero Inferno Girl Red in Inferno Girl Red: BookTwo. Groom and D’Urso will be joined by the entire original creative team, including colorist Igor Monti, letterer Becca Carey , editor Kyle Higgins and design agency For the People. The new campaign invites readers into the world already loved by thousands, with an opportunity to access both Inferno Girl Red:Book One and Book Two in either digital or deluxe, oversized hardcover forms.
When her new home of Apex City was ripped out of existence and cast into darkness, Cássia Costa had to embrace an ancient power to become the legendary hero INFERNO GIRL RED. She rose to the challenge, pushing herself farther than she ever thought possible – but though Cássia protected the city from its first major threat, it cost her dearly. Now, still reeling from a heartbreaking loss, Cássia must forge a relationship with a new mentor, and expand an unlikely team – because the consequences of her previous “victory” have come back to haunt her, and a villainous duo is on the rise! A fraught potential romance beckons, a long-held secret threatens to be revealed, and an unimaginable choice could see Apex City left defenseless! Can Cássia navigate it all… or even survive it all?
The Kickstarter edition of Inferno Girl Red: BookTwo will be the perfect accompaniment to the Kickstarter edition of BOOK ONE, with the same oversized, deluxe hardcover format, and a new, exclusive Kickstarter-only cover with Kickstarter exclusive behind-the-scenes materials. This edition will feature 120 pages of story (with behind-the-scenes materials and informational pages additional to this page count).
Image Comics presents an extra-length one-shot containing the four, five-page Shift stories—which were originally released in IMAGE! 30th Anniversary Anthology—alongside a brand new five-page story by Shift creators Kyle Higgins and Daniele Di Nicuolo. This exciting one-shot out of the Massive-Verse is set to prime readers for Shift’s upcoming appearance in Radiant Black‘s The Catalyst War and will hit shelves this December.
He’s tangled with Radiant Black and fought alongside The Dead Lucky—but who’s the man in the suit, and how did he assemble his team of contractors?
Shift one-shot will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 20:
Hot new series NO/ONEby Kyle Higgins, Brian Buccellato, and Geraldo Borges has fans speculating what will happen next in this True-Crime-inspired caper. NO/ONE #1has completely sold out yet again, NO/ONE #2 copies have been completely wiped out, and NO/ONE #3 reorders are already ramping up at record speed ahead of its on-sale date. Image Comics will rush the #1 and #2 back to print in order to keep up with escalating demand.
The NO/ONE #1, third printing will feature new cover art by Stephen Green and Mark Englert and NO/ONE #2, second printing will feature new cover art by Goni Montes. Fans should hustle down to their local comic shop in search of lingering printings on shelves and add the series to their pull-lists so as not to miss the jaw-dropping, face-melting twists to come.
So what’s NO/ONE about? This gritty, true-crime-style mystery follows The Richard Roe murders, which shocked the city of Pittsburgh. In the months since, the killings have sparked a dangerous political movement, copycat killers, and a masked vigilante who’s still determined to hold the powerful accountable. Not a symbol. Not a hero. They could be anyone. They’re NO/ONE.
NO/ONE is a ten issue comic book maxiseries joining Radiant Black, Rogue Sun, Radiant Red, The Dead Lucky, Radiant Pink, Inferno Girl Red, and C.O.W.L. in the expanding shared Massive-Verse and is perhaps the most unique, creatively boundary-pushing entry yet.

The upcoming miniseries Deep Cuts—co-written by Massive-Verse architect Kyle Higgins and award winning composer Joe Clark—will feature connecting covers across all six issues of the series. Image Comics has revealed the connecting cover image (artwork by Chris Brunner and colors by Rico Renzi) which highlights a span of 60 iconic years of music history explored throughout the story.
The superstar talent on deck to provide interior art for each issue include: Danilo Beyruth, Helena Masellis, Diego Greco, Ramón K Pérez, Juni Ba, and Toby Cypress with all issues colored by Igor Monti.
Bonus backmatter material for each Deep Cuts issue will also include lead sheets of original songs by Chicago jazz composers, inspired by and connected to each issue’s story.
Inspired by real events, Deep Cuts tells stories of the interconnected struggle, joy and hope in jazz as well as the (sometimes) stray connections that ultimately inspire each new generation.
Deep Cuts #1 is set in New Orleans, 1917. In the city’s bustling red-light district, a young clarinet player lands a job with his hero—but he’ll soon discover there’s more to the music business than playing the right notes.
Deep Cuts #1 (Diamond Code FEB230009) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 26. Deep Cuts #2 (Diamond Code MAR230125) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, May 31. Deep Cuts #3 (Diamond Code APR230235) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, June 28.
