“A sublime piece of futurism that is both entertaining in its absurdity and terrifying in its predictions.” —Clive Barker
“A masterful blend of message and sensation.” —Vita Ayala
“Not just good, but important. A haunting shot across the bow of the worst the internet has to offer. A stunning and electric debut.” —Donny Cates
The trade paperback of the critically acclaimed, Eisner nominated, 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 hit stores on June 6th and collects issues #1-6 of the series.
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.
Part invasion horror, part grounded science-fiction, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET paints a very real picture of our world on a personal level and 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 NO. 1 WITH A BULLET trade paperback (Diamond Code: MAR180610, ISBN: 978-1-5343-0671-4) is available in comic shops on Wednesday, June 6th and in bookstores on Tuesday, June 12th. It can be ordered online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo.
