    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 14, 2018

    No. 1 with a Bullet is a horror comic like no other. It hits like a punch to the gut with real world monsters. These are not mythical beings or supernatural creatures. These are normal everyday people capable of incredibly heinous actions. That is a million times scarier than anything that fits the typical monster stereotype. Read Full Review

    GWW - Kristel Yeager Feb 5, 2018

    Another awesome dive into the life/mind of a social media and overall assault victim. In a world where #MeToo is so widespread, we need a kick*ss female lead like Nash! At the end of this issue, my favorite yet, we see her ready to fight back again. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Feb 13, 2018

    No 1 With a Bullet never disappoints on its social commentaries. Acknowledging that much of the abuse in the book's plot is related to influence is a poignant aspect of the books themes. The constant descent of our hero Nash while her former boss seems to be on the rise becomes even more harrowing as we inch forward to an explosive climax. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Feb 10, 2018

    Another fine issue of a series that is fast proving to have an original voice, and which has found an original way to depict contemporary social issues and concerns. In fact it's hard to think of a book that taps into contemporary issues around gender roles and perspective as well as this one. Another strong installment. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Feb 8, 2018

    'No. 1 With a Bullet' is an unflinching look at cyberbullying and toxic internet culture that permeates so much of our daily lives. Nash battles the lingering effects of being exploited as best she can, staying resilient amid debilitating hallucinations. All the while, there's a deadly mystery surrounding a potentially deadly stalker lurking right around the corner. This remains a devastating cautionary tale about technology enabling the monsters among us. It makes one damn vital read too.   Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Feb 7, 2018

    The artwork for this issue was brilliant, especially the color palette. I didn't think I'd like the bright colors, especially in contrast to the heavier plot and subject matter, but it's oddly appropriate. Somehow the glaring nature of it all complements the story perfectly and vice versa. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Feb 8, 2018

    Comics are designed to be consumed on an issue by issue basis, but at times you do have those series that work so much better in the trade format. The best writers are able to find a middle ground. Jacob Semahn and Jorge Corona are not quite there yet. They both have shown major promise with this book that makes me believe one day they could be, and it is that fact that makes me continue reading this series. Read Full Review
