Ten months ago, the Richard Roe murders shocked the city of Pittsburgh. In the months since, the killings have sparked a dangerous political movement, copycat killers, and a masked vigilante who's still determined to hold the powerful accountable. Not a symbol. Not a hero. They could be anyone. They're NO/ONE.

Superstar writers KYLE HIGGINS (RADIANT BLACK) and BRIAN BUCCELLATO (Chicken Devil) and rising-star artist GERALDO BORGES (Nightwing) bring you the extra-length first chapter of a true crime superhero drama in its own corner of the MASSIVE-VERSE!

PLUS! The story continues in "Who is No/One, more

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Mar 14, 2023

    A blockbuster first issue kicks off this limited series. The writers have taken the serial killer trope and turned it on its head with fantastic results. While it's still early, with only one issue in, this is a contender for series of the year. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Mar 15, 2023

    Those elements feed the noir aesthetic of the book and allow style to overtake the cracks of the book. Englert and Otsmane-Elhaous work on the coloring and lettering respectively reinforce those noir elements, playing up the hacker elements along with hard-hitting reporting. NO/ONE #1 and its accompanying podcast Who is NO/ONE is a fun read, and an even more compelling listen, that scratches an itch for street-level, noir-themed superhero mystery. Read Full Review

    As soon as you open No/One #1 you are immediately invested in the world Kyle Higgins, Brian Buccellato, and Geraldo Borges craft. While you are dropped in the middle of a murder mystery already in-development you are rewarded the deeper you get into No/One #1 as we learn more about the characters and story. It all comes together for a must-read comic book. Read Full Review

    Capes & Tights - Justin Soderberg Mar 16, 2023

    The oversized debut issue allows for more story and the additional pages at the back, including a Wikipedia-style one page with information about the story is a great way to kick-off the miniseries.While you don't need to read the entire Massive-Verse to understand what is going on between the pages of this debut issue, we will always recommend this amazing superhero universe from Higgins.

    If you like a crime/detective story, then this is a solid start. A lot of unknowns and they make you work for it. If you read the book a second time, you pick up a lot more than what you got from the first run based on the art mixing with the dialogue. Are secrets hidden? People lying? Where will the plot go?

    This is how the first issue of a murder mystery should be written.

    This is a dense book, but is worth it. In just one issue you become immersed in this world.

    Just when you think it’s just a compelling crime drama with several well developed characters, BAM, it’s also a hero Mag. I love when new takes on caped crusaders are unique without being totally cynical. I’m so excited to see what’s next!

    A very well done introduction to this crime superhero story set in my hometown no less!

    Artwork is solid and captures the gray and blue and orange tones of nighttime Pittsburgh, and sets off several storylines weaving in and out of this narrative about a masked vigilante taking matters into his own hands.

    Theres also a tie in podcast which is a very cool and unique way of connecting dots within a story, but I haven't listened to it yet.

    The comic is good on its own but im guessing the podcast will help readers connect the dots. Looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

    This book doesn't hold your hand throughout, which is a nice change of pace. Your thrown into the middle of a story of murder and mystery with no life preserver and it's a blast. I believe it's ten issues, so I'm not sure if it will get stale or not, but for now I'm on board. Still have yet to check out the pod cast but if it's as fun as the book I'll be happy.

    This was tedious!
    Art is a 8
    Story telling drifts off into media ethics and co-operations...4 out of ten
    I know it would have something to do with the plot later on but man find another way to bring this information in.
    The main story was interesting when they got around to it and will read next issue but writer has to be more concise to sell more books!
