Julia's quest for the truth gets personal as Ben gets closer to identifying the copycat killer-and maybe finally answering the question of NO/ONE's identity.

PLUS! The story continues in "Who is No/One," a monthly companion podcast starring RACHAEL LEIGH COOK (She's All That) and PATTON OSWALT (Netflix's The Sandman, Minor Threats, Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.)!

NO/ONE is a Massive-Verse series.

    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Jul 5, 2023

    While that drives the bulk of the issue, the return of NO/ONE and their copycat provides an opportunity for strong, inventive art and resonant coloring that bolsters the underlying themes of the issue. Each element serves as a reminder that the title is less of a superhero story like the other installments of the Massive-Verse, but channels some of the kinetic action of the interconnected universe. Instead, NO/ONE focuses on a more grounded, more introspective exploration of systemic issues of justice in local communities. Read Full Review

    Borges brings some great details to the art within the issue. The visuals are beautifully done and give a great sense of tension and drama from both the action and the interpersonal conflicts. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 3, 2023

    No/One #4 is yet another incredible issue in what is one of the standout comic books of 2023. Kyle Higgins, Brian Buccellato, and Geraldo Borges do an excellent job at pacing the issue to give enough time to simultaneously develop No/One, Julia Paige, and Ben Kern's narrative. The pacing creates a greater level of investment in wanting to find out what happens next in the story. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tom Smithyman Jul 5, 2023

    Family stuggles and issues of a pre-emptive defense against doxxing dominate this chapter, making it a thinking person's comic book. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though it does cut down on the action, at least for now. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 7, 2023

    Higgins and Buccellato engage the comic book format in a way that almost keeps it from completely embracing it. So much of the drama would feel that much more at home on stage or screen. The story isnt quite serving the comics medium by focusing as much as it does on mysteries that take place largely off-page. That being said, there are aspects of the story that could only work in comic book format, so there definitely IS enough to keep the story firmly planted on page and panel. It is a compelling story...it just seems to be a story thats looking for a different format.  Read Full Review

    Geraldo Borges' art and Mark Englert's color work navigate those two extremes well, creating a book that is only growing on me more with each passing page. Read Full Review

    Note: This issue gets a 1.0 boost due to the pod-cast. The interview with Tate is excellent and the voice actors are great/giving more insight into what occurs in the issue in this book. Really its the other side of the coin to this issue.

    Things don't go so great for No-One in this issue. Really nothing goes well for anyone this issue but tensions rise and the senator is essentially putting fuel on the fire. I look forward to see where this goes. Its a great ride and I strongly recommend getting this issue by issue, as it feels like that is how it was meant to get read, it keeps the tension so high, I love it.

    Still need to listen to the podcast episode. As an issue, this ones an 8.5 art remains in point, the dialogue is natural and the setting is well represented, as someone with 2 decades of experience living there! This is a unique book for sure.
