"Centuries after the fall of the Anthropocene, the last vestiges of human civilization are housed in a massive domed city powered by renewable energy, known as The Green Zone. Inside lives teenager Tenn Gavrilo, a brilliant bio-engineer who could rebuild the planet. But there's one problem: her resentful brother Seren is eager to dismantle the precarious Utopia.
  From the minds of Zac Thompson (X-Men, Yondu) and debut writer Emily Horn with artist Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque (Letter 44, Avengers ) comes a gorgeous and green solar-punk world filled with strange biotechnology, harsh superstorms, and divisive ideologies-ideologies that w more

    AIPT - Arbaz M. Khan Mar 25, 2020

    The beauty of this book is that it is brimming with hope for the future. Yes, it's apocalyptic and disparate, but there is such a fervent change of approach in this book. It has an understanding of nature and life that purports the entire drama of this story.  For a book that could have plummeted at any point, Thompson and Horn manage to soar with their narrative. The only true drawback is that it's more necessary than we thought.  Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Mar 24, 2020

    Overall, I found No Ones Rose #1 to be an intriguing read. What Ive seen of this world feels unique. There feels like there is potential here for a story that may perhaps be a little different than most of its type. But whether it will blaze its own trail or walk well-trodden roads remains to be seen. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Mar 30, 2020

    Writers Emily Horn and Zac Thompson offer narration that posits man's relationship with nature as a symbiotic one " we help it survive so we can as well, no altruism attached. Artist Alberto Jimenez-Albuquerque and colorist Ral Angulo present a desolate world of dilapidated buildings that could topple over at any moment, with gray and patchy land and crackling lightning.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Feb 29, 2020

    A densely packed issue which draws the reader deep into its Solar Punk world, its themes and ideas are sure to linger on the mind long after you’ve put the comic down. A breath of fresh air in a world which feels increasingly pessimistic about the future. Some much-needed hope. Brilliantly brought to life by Alburquerque’s art and Raúl Angulo’s colours. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    It's a bit of a slow start as we learn more about the society and how this world of the future operates, but it's an interesting premise, even if ithits a bit close to home right now. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 24, 2020

    No One's Rose #1 has a lot going for it. The art is beautifully done and is the high point of the issue. There is a lot done, visually, that makes the story worthwhile. The story itself also has a lot going for it. The basic concept is interesting and intriguing. The characters also have a lot of potential, as well. Read Full Review

    Stories that throw the reader into its world from the get-go can be either good or bad. The reason why I believe No One’s Rose falls more towards the latter is due to the world having too much going for it in the first issue. We learn about two siblings, both with their own major agendas and a tragic past involving their father, and we learn about the class system that divides the people. Personally, while I was reading this I wanted a little breathing room such as focusing on one conflict at a time to allow the story to slow down. This comic isn’t necessarily bad, in fact it’s message and art is solid, but it just felt like it was trying to do a little too much.
