Publisher’s Summary: “Buckling under the stress, Nash’s reality is rocked as an unexpected visitor and the Museum of Death await her with open arms. ”

The Museum of Death scene that is referenced in the publisher’s summary of No. 1 With A Bullet #3 is thrilling. After all, where better to have a life-changing hallucinatory experience than in a museum dedicated to death and dying? This scene is well-written, well-illustrated, and provided readers with good reason to revisit the issue.

The creative team behind No. 1 With A Bullet has been consistent in their efforts to produce polished books that are worthy of readers’ admiration. Thanks to Jorge Corona and Jen Hickman, each page is electric and full of energy; the overall look of this book especially balances the darkness and the heft of Semahn’s script.

Also worth noting is that, in this issue, readers are allotted some more (personal) time with Jad Davies than they’ve had prior. With this added time, with being able to see how this whole ‘ordeal’ is affecting his life, Semahn rounds out the plot and really, makes No. 1 With A Bullet a multi-faceted story.

Another great work.

The Bottom Line:

With each issue, writer Jacob Semahn adds depth to the No. 1 With A Bullet story, and in doing so, creates a unique reading experience. The Museum of Death scene found in No. 1 With A Bullet #3 is a trip; it’s beautiful and it’s haunting and it is certainly worth re-visiting as it puts the events that have thus far transpired in No. 1 With A Bullet into perspective. A worthwhile read indeed.
