Kyle Higginsmastermind of Radiant Black and the Massive-Verse, had nothing but praise for the new title and its team. “One of the best things to come out of my time on [the] power Rangers [comic] was getting to work with Melissa, who continues to impress me as a storyteller and a natural world builder. When she pitched me Dead Lucky it was a no-brainer. What she, French, [colorist] mattia [Ianoco]and [letterist] Becca [Carey] have put together is a fascinating look at technology, grief, and our need to connect…plus some killer superhero action, of course. I can’t wait for people to explore the next corner of tI have Massive-Verse!”
