    It's eerie how on point No. 1 with a Bullet is with the headlines in today's news. The comic hits a number of very relevant social issues in a way that makes way too much sense. This can happen. It would not be surprising at all to see a similar story pop up in the news tomorrow. It deals with how we handle fame, sex, technology, and fandom and where the lines are crossed with each.

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Dec 11, 2017

    The second issue of No 1 With a Bullet gets a little more personal. Introducing a culture that is a funhouse mirror to our own, we are given an in-depth look at how media and gossip can affect the individual. More importantly, we see the dehumanization of a woman. A subject all too many people are apt to ignore, Semahn pulls the ugly culture into the light and has no qualms about reflecting that mirror back on us. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Andrew McAvoy Dec 8, 2017

    The opening issue of this series was great, and this issue builds on that solid foundation. The story is given more depth and the characterization of Nash, and the depiction of the circumstances in which she finds herself is handled magnificently. This is fast becoming the comic book series to watch; one of the most exciting titles on the shelves the minute. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 9, 2017

    No. 1 With a Bullet #2 is a dramatic and heavy issue showing how much one video Nash didnt know about viciously tears apart her life. Nash herself is a compelling protagonist capable of holding up the story, and the art is solid, too. This one earns a recommendation, and you should check it out. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan F. Hodgdon Dec 7, 2017

    Whatever reservations I may have had about No. 1 With a Bullet in the first issue have been largely dispelled by its second. This creative team is really coming together and presenting a blunt, unapologetic treatise on how we relate to each other in the 21st century, and all the horrors that entails. As perverse (and ironic) as it may sound, I can't wait to see more. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Dec 10, 2017

    'No. 1 With A Bullet' is a tale ripped from today's headlines told with worts and all. It's a sobering look at the impact it does to someone's life as embodied by Semahn's heroine. As painful and as uncomfortable as the topic of online abuse and public shaming is, Semahn and Corona don't pull any punches while creating an engrossing and mesmerizing story. And it's just getting started.  Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Dec 6, 2017

    I love the art style used in this series. It feels rougher, almost like I'm seeing the artwork before it has had a chance to get smoothed out. It makes everything feel more alive and organic. The color palettes compliment it nicely " sometimes they border on the monochromatic side, such as lots of shades in the same family used for one scene. This really helped to identify which scene was which sometimes. Most of the colors were also muted or pastels (nothing like what is on the cover) which really helped to support the heavier and more somber plot. Read Full Review
