‘No One’s Rose’ #4 review

Zac Thompson and Emily Horn have managed to create a juggernaut of a series within the science fiction genre. 

In refusing to stay with their confines, No One’s Rose‘s protagonists continue to search for alternatives in issue #4. It’s a strange moment to have to deal with attaining your goal and then having it fail to reach its full potential. This issue truly maintains resonance in our current society, but also goes to show how corrupt we allow our larger institutions and closed-off cultures to be. The indelible aspect of this book is its execution of the plot that grapples with the limits of a revolution. 

Alberto Alburquerque’s art is the lynch pin of this series — his ability to capture intimate character moments within a vast sci-fi world is unparalleled. Being able to juggle these wonderful set-pieces really hones in the reading experience. Not only that, but being able to make the world feel downtrodden and diverse in its expansive world creates so many other stories that readers may be missing. Even further is the great character designs that allow for this bridge between modern cultures.

Further pushing this artwork is the colors of Raul Angulo, which offer such great magnification into each different set-piece. The different shades for the backdrops and varied colors of all the characters bring the people of the world at the forefront of these reading expeditions. Also an important component is letterer Hassan-Otsmane Elhaou, whose lettering has managed to give great uniqueness for each aspect of the two characters that we follow. Even things like the chyron are provided these wonderful artistic strokes and flourishes that allow for them to simply pop off the page.

With this issue being the penultimate, there is some interesting setup for how this series will conclude. Overall, Zac Thompson and Emily Horn have managed to create a juggernaut of a series within the science fiction genre.
