Mistakes have been made, and in MIDDLEWEST, an unwitting adventurer searches for answers to quell a coming storm that knows his name. So begins the epic tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.

Corona added: "Being part of this amazing team is a dream come true, and having Skottie's trust to help him bring this world to life is really a privilege. I just can't wait for everyone else to join us along with Abel as we travel through Middlewest."

Trade Paperback and Trailer Revealed for No. 1 With A Bullet


NO. 1 WITH A BULLET TRADE PAPERBACK
TRAILER REVEALED
Video editor: Andrew Furtado | Music: Wojciech Golczewski | Song: Spectre | Album: The Signal




“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

PORTLAND, OR, 06/05/2018 — 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.

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET Launching in November

NEW THRILLER NO. 1 WITH A BULLET
HITS THE MARK

PORTLAND, OR, 07/11/2017 — From the bestselling creative team behind GONERS, Jacob Semahn and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Jorge Corona team up once again for an all-new thriller in NO. 1 WITH A BULLET. The new series is set to launch this November.

Her social media, strong. Her variety show segments, a hit. In NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Nash Huang is at the top of her game. But when the iRis Shutter contact lens hits the market, Nash’s life is personally invaded. The latest leap forward in “technological progress,” these contacts not only play video or augment reality… but also record with the blink of an eye. Fighting to keep her life together after a leaked sex tape goes viral, a clingy super fan is the last thing on Nash’s mind… but that’s exactly when the bodies pile up and the terror begins.

“The more I looked around at our world—the post-facts, the online victimization, the shouting past each other into the digital void—the more I wondered if technology has helped us more than hurt us,” said Semahn. “Without a second thought we give up privacy every day in order to appease our social media overlords, but at what cost? With patents filed for recordable contact lenses in order to ‘make sure you don’t miss a single moment of your life,’ where do we the draw the line? No. 1 explores both innovation and invasion. A stalker story at heart, with a Black Mirror feel, No. 1 With A Bullet paints an all too real future right around the corner.”

Corona added: “Social networks and the way the lines between private and public aspects of our lives have blurred with the advances of technology is something that fascinates me. It has connected the world in ways never before imagined, but it has also exposed a very dark side of us all that, in some cases, magnifies the proximity of how close we can feel to being vulnerable online. These are not new problems, these are issues society has been dealing with for years. Now, we’re just trying to understand how to deal with them in a completely different context. Exploring the human root in a world that has become so artificial was what drove me into making this project a priority.”

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, November 1st.
