Religious texts from The Bible to the Sumerian tablets speak of strange creatures descending from the heavens and mating with humans, their children the superhuman heroes of myth. None of this ever meant anything to Iraq War veteran Hannah Gregory, until she found herself in the crosshairs of a dangerous cult convinced that she's a descendant of these mysterious bloodlines... bloodlines they're determined to eradicate. No Angel is a cosmological and conspiratorial modern Western in the style of Preacher meets Justified by way of Jodorowsky.

    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Nov 30, 2016

    This is a great first issue with a great creative team behind it. This is a series and team that could put Black Mask on the map. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 30, 2016

    The art of the issue steps away from the stereotypical bright colours and crisp costumes that heavily populate the comic industry. Instead, it goes for the depth and refined sketch style which truly makes for glorious reading. The dialogue across the issue feels very honest and real. It helps to ground these characters in a world not too dissimilar from our own… to begin with. Once Hannah's eyes are opened, nothing will ever be the same. Overall, we absolutely loved the first issue of this new series. And whilst it isn't action packed, we get the feeling that this is just the beginning of something truly unique. IsNo Angel #1 a new favourite entry? It just might be. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Oct 24, 2016

    No Angel starts as a drama about family and grief, then rips the rug out from under you, throwing you into a horror of immeasurable proportions.  Seriously, there is one panel in particular that will haunt you for some time.  Once you read the book, you'll know exactly which one I mean.  The twists and turns at the end are earned through the top-notch character development throughout the majority of the issue.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Nov 30, 2016

    “No Angel” #1 is a very intriguing debut with an engaging lead character. The art team does tremendous work and the pacing is just what I like in a debut. Black Mask continues to be a publisher to watch with this debut. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - mahargen Nov 28, 2016

    I'm chalking this one up as another win for Black Mask. Despite launching with less pomp and circumstance than other titles, "No Angel" should find its way to your stack if you're into supernatural fare. This introductory chapter gives us a solid footing before pulling the rug out from under us on the last page, and the story promises to be nothing if not interesting. The book can go in a number of different directions. Read Full Review

    The Broken Infinite - Frank Rodriguez Dec 1, 2016

    No Angel # 1 is an intriguing, compelling ride that gives us mystery and mysticism. The Palickis do a magnificent job of introducing our lead, Hannah, while doing a little world building and establishing plotlines in a very organic way. Syahrazad and Csuka render an atmospheric, near cinematic work of art. Every single has a tone and mood alongside the progressive art. Besides the talk between Hannah and her mother, their art work is amazing. With a badass, intelligent lead in Hannah and a nice jaw dropping revelations in the last third of the book, readers will get hooked and demands more. Read Full Review

    It may take another issue to really iron out the kinks, but I can see a bright future for this series if people stick around. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Nov 28, 2016

    I've read many comics co-written by celebrity writers that were terrible. Thankfully, No Angel looks to buck that trend with a solid premise and well-executed opening chapter (which makes me crush on Adrianne Palicki even harder). If Csuka's colors can mesh with Syahrazad's pencils, then this book could end up being something really special. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Jeremy Radick Nov 29, 2016

    Despite some aspects that feel overly familiar to anyone who has seen or read a story about a strong woman fighting off a supernatural threat, No Angel #1 is executed strongly enough by its creative team to engage readers with its interesting protagonist and well-structured thrills and chills.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 30, 2016

    I was extremely disappointed by this title. Yes, I was leery of it, but I still like to give Black Mask a chance. Lately, they haven't produced much for me to enjoy. If others are enjoying it, then good for them, but I'm starting to study the solicits more and decide if it's worth the time and effort to read some of these books. No Angel certainly wasn't and I won't be back for more angel half-sister bonding time/Hollywood audition. Coming soon to a theater near you, based on the comic book from Black Mask Studios, it's this thing. Read Full Review
