Goñi Montes Delivers a Power Rangers Homage with a Radiant Black Variant

The eagerly anticipated forthcoming superhero series Radiant Black by Kyle Higgins and Marcelo Costa will launch from Image Comics with a nod to the popular line of Power Rangers helmet covers. Goñi Montes will lend his talents for a highly collectible 1:50 limited homage variant to spike the adrenaline for readers over the forthcoming superhero series.

Radiant Black #1 introduces Nathan Burnett who has just turned thirty. Things aren’t great: He’s working (and failing) at two jobs, his credit card debt is piling up, and his only move… is moving back home with his parents.

But when Nathan discovers and unlocks the ethereal, cosmic RADIANT, he’s given the power to radically change his fortunes!

There’s just one problem: The powers don’t belong to him. And the COSMIC BEINGS who created them want them back… by any means necessary.

Humanoids Debuts A Black Light Variant Cover By Dan Panosian and a Virgin Variant Cover by Darick Robertson for Space Bastards #1

When Humanoids debuts Space Bastards by The Boys artist and co-creator Darick Robertson and writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey this January 13th, there will be a one-in-ten collectible, black light variant cover by acclaimed artist Dan Panosian and a 50/50 virgin variant cover by Darick Robertson. In Space Bastards, David S. Proton is a meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money. He joins the Intergalactic Postal Service only to be paired with Manny Corns (a.k.a. “The Manicorn”), a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the company. And things only get worse from there.

In Space Bastards, violence is everywhere. Corporations are exploiting the weak and disenfranchised. And while America has taken to the cosmos, scientific advancements and technology have outpaced civilization as we know it. Even getting mail between planets is damn near impossible. Enter the Intergalactic Postal Service, a deadly organization with a brutal, mercenary business model. Whoever delivers the package gets the cash. And every delivery can be made by any means necessary.

Space Bastards kicks off in January with the seven-part monthly “Tooth and Mail” arc by series co-creators Robertson, Peterson, and Aubrey. Later in the year, writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey will be joined by all-star artists Simon Bisley and Clint Langley.
