"A sublime piece of futurism that is both entertaining in its absurdity and terrifying in its predictions."--Clive Barker
Her social media, strong. Her variety show segments, a hit. Nash Huang is at the top of her game. But when the iRis Shutter contact lens hits the market, Nash's life is personally invaded. The latest leap forward in "technological progress," these contacts not only play video or augment reality...but also record footage. Fighting to keep her life together after a leaked sex tape goes viral, a clingy super-fan is the last thing on Nash's mind...but that's exactly when the bodies pile up and the terror begins.

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Nov 15, 2017

    The more you read No 1. With a Bullet, the denser it feels. There is clearly a grand scheme at play that includes social media, anonymity, internet scandal and online bullying. Nash is a character with a fully developed life and inner monologue that will make her an exciting character to explore these topics. The book feels so grounded in reality, the themes hit harder than many other Sci-Fi books on the shelf. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 31, 2017

    While the storyline remains to be seen, the artwork for No. 1 With a Bullet cannot be denied, and it’s these kinds of off-kilter visuals that make me excited to see where this series heads next. Given the potential of sci-fi and horror as genres, it’s surprising to not see more of this in comic books, which allows Semahn and Corona ample room to play around with some particularly heady themes (and deliver readers some off-the-wall scares). It’s too early to say if this title lives up to its name just yet, but consider me on-board for more No. 1 With a Bullet. Read Full Review

Jacob Semahn, Jorge Corona, and Jen Hickman channel this primal, yet technological fear inNo. 1 with A Bulletand chase it with colorscapes that will be seared into your brain and a main character that you will want to grab a drink and maybe hug when the comic drops in November.

    Impulse Gamer - Lyla Saudi Nov 15, 2017

    I enjoyed how this issue touched on elements that are relatable to a lot of current modern day situations. Not sure which direction the series will head in as the main focus was on the development of Nash's character (with a side of dead stalker) but I can't wait to get my hands on issue #2!

    Taking your time with a story is always a risk, especially in comics; if you don't do enough in the first issue, you can drive a lot of people away. No. 1 With A Bullet flirts with this. However, with a combination of smart characterization and dynamic art it overcomes that hurdle. Read Full Review
