Review:

As the story progresses, No. 1 With A Bullet is becoming more intense, and as it does, more interesting and entertaining. In Issue #2, No. 1 With A Bullet goes from moving in the right direction to sprinting toward perfection; the book’s final seven-or-so pages are transformative in the sense that they bring the series to a new level by introducing Horror/Thriller aspects to the story.

No. 1 With A Bullet #2 stimulates on multiple levels, and while some of us don’t like to think whilst reading comics, series like No. 1 With A Bullet provide enough food for thought that doing so—thinking and reflecting—is inevitable. Perhaps the events in this series may serve as a trigger to some, but as far as I am concerned, art is supposed to solicit feeling and emotional reaction from its viewer. Thus, writer Jacob Semahn is doing his job correctly.

Visually impressive, No. 1 With A Bullet #2 is packed tight with emotion and energy. Panels pop from the page, and Corona’s line work and Hickman’s colors make for a great ‘digital’ feel that separates No. 1 With A Bullet from most other series currently in print.

The Bottom Line:

No. 1 With A Bullet has gone from moving in the right direction to sprinting toward perfection in its second issue. With great depth of story and an electrifying look, No. 1 With A Bullet is a series that comic readers shouldn’t miss. It’s only going to keep getting better from here…
