So what’s Radiant Pink about?

In Radiant Pink, life is good for Eva. Ever since teleporting superhero Radiant Pink (her secret alter ego) started guesting on her streams, her view count has skyrocketed—and fame and fortune are surely close behind. But when a charity appearance is interrupted by a squad of mercenaries hunting for the Radiant that powers her, Eva will find herself very far out of her comfort zone.

Kubert added: “With Meghan and Melissa’s action-filled story and wonderful direction, I’m having a blast creating the exciting visuals of Radiant Pink. It’s an absolute thrill to follow Eva on this emotional roller coaster and really see all the different sides to this awesome, fun-loving character.”

“It’s been so much fun building out the Radiant Black side of the Massive-Verse and part of that includes having the opportunity to bring in Meghan, Melissa, Emma, ​​Rebecca and Becca to help us explore a very different side of ‘superheroing,'” said Higgins. “Similar to what Cherish, David and Miquel did with Satomi’s story in Radiant Red, Meghan and Melissa are sending Eva to some pretty unexpected places. I can’t wait for people to get to know her better.”

“WHO LET ME DO THIS? Oh yeah thanks Kyle! Radiant Pink is a tale of self love, growth and an extra bit of chaos,” said Camarena. “Sharing with you a chapter from a very vulnerable part of my life, told through Eva. Melissa Flores is bringing the angst and Emma Kubert is bringing the sparkle!”

Kyle Higgins & Marcelo Costa’s breakout hit Radiant Black took superhero storytelling to new heights when it launched in 2021—but Radiant Black isn’t the only character inhabiting the growing Massive-Verse. Each character has a different story to tell, different adversaries to face… and they each occupy a very different corner of this shared superhero universe. Now’s the time to get into the Massive-Verse.
