PREVIEW: 'Nuclear Family' #1 by Stephanie Phillips, Tony Shasteen, and JD Mettler

 America, 1957. Elvis dominates the airwaves and apple pie is served after every meal. But, with the dark cloud of nuclear holocaust looming, Korean War vet Tim McClean’s major concern is taking care of his family in the atomic age. When the first bomb does drop on an unexpecting Midwest city, Tim and his family find themselves plunged into a strange new world, where what’s left of the United States has gone underground while continuing to wage war on Russia with unthinkable tactics. Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story Breakfast at Twilight , NUCLEAR FAMILY is written by  Stephanie Phillips ( Butcher of Paris, Heavy Metal , ARTEMIS AND THE ASSASSIN, RED ATLANTIS) and illustrated by Tony Shasteen ( Star Trek ). It’s Cold War-era science fiction at its most timely and terrifying.

TRAILER: Get The Trade Paperback of Image's NO. 1 WITH A BULLET Next Week

The trade paperback of the critically acclaimed, Eisner Nominated Image Comics series, 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 launch on June 6th.


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 superfan is the last thing on Nash's mind. But then the bodies start to pile up... and the terror begins.

The trade paperback collects issues #1-6 of the lauded series, together for the first time. Part invasion horror, part grounded sci-fi, NO. 1 WITH A BULLET paints a very real picture of our world on a personal level that is “A sublime piece of futurism that is both entertaining in its absurdity and terrifying in its predictions.” — Clive Barker (Hellraiser, Candyman)


Vita Ayala (Submerged, The Wilds) calls it, “A masterful blend of message and sensation.” While Donny Cates (Venom, God Country, Redneck) adds, “Not just good, but important. A haunting shot across the bow of the worst the internet has to offer. A stunning and electric debut.”

"'No. 1 With A Bullet' found a way to tackle tough subjects like sexual exploitation and cyberstalking and craft a suspenseful thought-provoking crime thriller out of it. Semahn, Corona, and Hickman have shed light on all-too-common real-life horrors through the lens of comics creating a powerful story that's timely and emotionally charged."- Enrique Rea (Spartantown.net)

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET takes a critical and highly relevant look at 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.

NO. 1 WITH A BULLET from Image Comics is available in stores and digital platforms on June 6th.
