The premiere issue of No World is a big YES!
The story of No World begins with an elderly man sitting next to a mother and child at a mall. He, and many other is the mall, gets a text and the story switches to breaking news of a mass murder in the mall. In the middle of nowhere, Hank and Miya are workers at a coffee shop following the story and speculating why and how it happened when a stranger on a motorcycle stops in for tea. She tells Miya she wants her for her special powers. Hank threatens the stranger to leave when gunfire erupts. Who is this stranger and what does she know?
This was a great starting issue for a new title. It got the story started immediately and there was plenty of action to hold the reader’s attention. This is the first time I’ve read Scott Lobdell’s work and I am already impressed. There is the perfect balance of action, suspense, drama and mystery to last for six issues. The comic is well-drawn and I am a fan of the style used by Jordan Gunderson. The colors, courtesy of JUANCHOo fit the artwork perfectly and do a great job of reflecting the mood of not only the scene, but the story. Jordan Gunderson and Peter Steigerwald designed a cover for each character and they are awesome works of art. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series and learn more about them.
I am happy I discovered No World and Aspen Comics. It was a fun read and was sort of reminiscent of X-Men with special powers, swordplay and gunfights. I look forward to reading more of No World and other Aspen comics titles in the future. No World #1 is on comic book shelves now so don’t forget to visit your local comic shop to pick up a copy!
