    Now that its in a single-volume format, I hope that word of mouth can propel No Hero up the sales charts and onto bookstore shelves. It honestly belongs alongside popular modern classics like Sleeper and Wanted, weaving a blockbuster-styled tale while exploring complex ideas about the nature of heroism and villainy.

    A good start to the story. I am interested where the story goes from here. Ellis and Ryp have my attention for at least another issue. Read Full Review

    The only downside to the book is that at $3.99 it doesn't feel like you're getting much more of a book than the 99 cent zero issue. However, that may speak to the value of the #0 issue rather than anything else. Regardless, Joshua Carver's entrance into the Front Liners should make a good read for anyone looking for a different bend on the super-hero genre. Read Full Review
