Number One takes you into the world of comic shops

In Number One, being a comic shop owner isn’t a job, it’s a calling. Written by Gary Scott Beatty and illustrated by Aaron Warner, Number One lands in comic shops Mar. 30, 2022 and explores 50 years of comic book history

Comics helped Steve through some tough times growing up and he turned his love of the medium into a comic shop business. But is it worth the toll it takes on his family?

Comic book readers may recognize that running a comic shop can be a tough business. In Number One, Beatty hopes to show readers why shop owners do what they do. Steve, the comic shop owner in Number One, deeply feels his store is important to his customers and his community. Beatty wanted no one else to bring Steve’s story to life than Warner.
