The Front Line are under attack from terrible forces they can barely see, at the same time as they seem to be falling apart from within -- and caught in the middle is idealistic new member Josh Carver, still traumatized from his transformation into a superhuman, still coping with the fact that The Front Line may not be the team of heroes he thought it was. Someone is hell-bent on revenging themselves on The Front Line -- and Josh Carver is next.

    No Hero is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I just hope that sooner than later, more is done to really solidify the plot that is emerging. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Apr 30, 2009

    My only real criticism of the issue (and of the series overall) is quite a general one: Im not sure if I have any real desire to read it a second time. Whilst the breadth of ideas being discussed is impressive, I dont sense a huge amount of depth in Elliss treatment of them, and unless the writer is saving a major twist for the closing chapters, I dont know that Ill feel motivated to revisit the book in future. As such, I may never experience it as the graphic novel that it purports to be on the cover of each serialized chapter. Still, thats hardly the most damning indictment in the world and the fact that the series is providing an entertaining and thought-provoking read every month that it appears makes it a lot more worthy of its audiences time and attention than many other publications.
