‘NO/ONE’ #1 Sells Out And Gets A Second Printing
by Olly MacNamee
Massive-verse mastermind Kyle Higgins (Radiant Black) Brian Buccellato (Chicken Devil, Detective Comics) and Geraldo Borges (Nightwing) NO/ONE #1has sold out at distribution level so its getting second printing and a new cover by Matteo Scalera and coloured by Buccellato.
“So what’s NO/ONE about? This gritty, true-crime-style mystery follows The Richard Roe murders, which 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.”
Buccellato spoke of the sell out first issue:
“I’m thrilled and humbled that our unconventional superhero true crime book is finding such an audience right out of the gate,. We are so proud of the work we are doing in the comic, in the podcast, and in all the supplemental materials. (Don’t forget to go through the show notes!) Kyle, Geraldo, Mark, Hassan, Alec, Michael and I are pulling out all the stops on our world building and really can’t wait to deliver the rest of our truly immersive NO/ONE experience.”
“With NO/ONE, Brian, Geraldo, Mark, Hassan, Alec, Michael and myself—along with a host of additional talented collaborators behind the scenes—are putting literally everything we have into this series and narrative experience. To say the initial reception has been thrilling would be an understatement. This is a story that Brian and I have been building for years and between our in-universe podcast, in-universe websites and a host of big surprises in the coming months, we can’t wait for readers to experience our take on what a modern, gritty superhero book can be. We invite fans to go even deeper by listening to the podcast, reading the show notes, and exploring all the mysteries surrounding NO/ONE. We’re out to do something much more than just a book—we’re excited to give readers a unique true-crime superhero experience.”
In addition to co-writing/co-creating the comic, Higgins directs the podcast’s production and is supported by sound supervisor Matthew E. Taylor (Star Trek: Discovery, Mythic Quest, Barry), C.O.W.L. co-creator and Black Market Narrative editor, Alec Siegel, to sound edit, and Emmy-award winning composer Kristopher Carter (Batman Beyond, Spectacular Spider-Man) to score the audio series. Each episode will showcase an exclusive episode poster by NO/ONE colorist and esteemed poster artist Mark Englert—which are also being released as a line of “podcast variant” covers to tie the two mediums together.
Furthermore, the world of NO/ONE also features an interactive, alternate reality game (ARG) narrative across in-universe social media accounts, websites, and other audio/visual elements (fans should be sure to follow: @000no_one, @TheDropPL, and subscribe to: http://the-drop.info, http://edgenews.info).
NO/ONE #1, second printing and NO/ONE #2 will both be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 19:
