Image's "No. 1 With a Bullet" trade paperback collection is out June 6
We're big fans of Image Comics' No. 1 With a Bullet around here. We've had the pleasure of interviewing with writer Jacob Semahn and (Eisner nominated!) penciler Jorge Corona and colorist Jen Hickman, each of whom shed great light on the frighteningly relevant story.
While the sixth and final issue of the series hit stands a few months ago, the entire series will be released in a single trade paperback volume next Wednesday, and Image Comics have released a promotional trailer that you can watch below. Once your interest has been piqued, be sure to contact your local comic shop to reserve a copy. It's a difficult read, but absolutely worth it.
NO. 1 WITH A BULLET Trade Paperback Release Trailer and Announcement
LOS ANGELES, CA, 5/31/2018 – The trade paperback of the critically acclaimed, Eisner Nominated Image Comics series, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET from writer Jacob Semahn (GONERS, Marvel’s Spider-Man) and artist Jorge Corona (GONERS, Feathers, Big Trouble in China: Old Man Jack) will launch on June 6th.
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 personal life is invaded. The latest leap forward in 'technological progress,' these contacts not only play video or augment reality... they also record footage. Fighting to keep her life together after a sex tape goes viral, a clingy super fan is the last thing on Nash's mind. But then the bodies start to pile up... and the terror begins.
The trade paperback collects issues #1-6 of the lauded series, together for the first time. Part invasion horror, part grounded sci-fi, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET paints a very real picture of our world on a personal level that is “A sublime piece of futurism that is both entertaining in its absurdity and terrifying in its predictions.” — Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Candyman)
Vita Ayala (Submerged, The Wilds) calls it, “A masterful blend of message and sensation.” While Donny Cates (Venom, God Country, Redneck) adds, “Not just good, but important. A haunting shot across the bow of the worst the internet has to offer. A stunning and electric debut.”
NO. 1 WITH A BULLET takes a critical and highly relevant look into today’s social media status quo. A world where technology has integrated itself so completely into everyday life that nothing is safe from online scrutiny and, by effect, the dark depths that our digital lives can bring.
The trade paperback of No. 1 With a Bullet will hit comic shops and other retailers next Wednesday, June 6.
