VIZ MEDIA RELEASES THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED MANGA SERIES RADIANT

Tony Valente’s Supernatural Adventure Series Arrives This September

San Francisco, CA, August 8, 2018 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, announces the release of the new manga series RADIANT on September 11th.

RADIANT is a supernatural action and adventure series created by French-born artist and writer Tony Valente. A Japanese-produced anime adaptation of Valente’s manga will premiere this fall. RADIANT is rated ‘T’ for Teens and will be published in print with an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN.

Volume 1 features 8 full-color pages. Future volumes of RADIANT will be published by VIZ Media on a bimonthly basis.

In RADIANT, evil creatures called Nemeses fall from the skies and the only ones who can fight them are Wizards—infected ones who survived a Nemesis’s corruption. Seth, one of these survivors, vows not only to fight the Nemeses, but to find their mythical nest, Radiant, and destroy it!

“RADIANT delivers a rich new world and loveable characters to fans craving a fresh take on shonen action and adventure,” says Marlene First, Editor. “We’re excited to unveil the first volume of RADIANT to our readers this fall and get a head start before the anime begins airing!”

RADIANT creator Tony Valente began working as a comic artist with the series The Four Princes of Ganahan written by Raphael Drommelschlager. He then launched his own three-volume project, Hana Attori, after which he produced S.P.E.E.D. Angels, a series written by Didier Tarquin and colored by Pop.
