Ten months ago, the Richard Roe murders shocked the city of Pittsburgh. In the months since, the killings have sparked a dangerous political movement, copycat killers, and a masked vigilante who’s still determined to hold the powerful accountable. Not a symbol. Not a hero. They could be anyone. They’re NO/ONE.
NO/ONE #1 was written by Higgins (Radiant Black, Dead Lucky, Rogue Sun) and Brian Buccellato (The Flash, Batman) with illustrations from Geraldo Borges, colors from Mark Englert, and lettering by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
While Higgins has created a wonderful universe at Image Comics, NO/ONE definitely has the ability to stand on its own. The story gives you a great deal of information and allows it to stand alone while still connecting to the greater Massive-Verse. The news reporter angle gives a fresh perspective storytelling device with outstanding artwork from Borges and Englert is a perfect combination.
The oversized debut issue allows for more story and the additional pages at the back, including a Wikipedia-style one page with information about the story is a great way to kick-off the miniseries. While you don’t need to read the entire Massive-Verse to understand what is going on between the pages of this debut issue, we will always recommend this amazing superhero universe from Higgins.
NO/ONE #1 hit shelves at your local comic shop on March 15, 2023 and a second issue comes April 19.
