Select praise for RENATO JONES: THE ONE%:
"A sort of hallucinatory rage pop 'Punisher from Occupy.' It's gorgeous and also demented." —Warren Ellis

“A true showcase for what one creator can accomplish when they script, draw, ink and color their own book.” —IGN

“If Kaare Andrews is drawing a comic book, we will be reading that comic book. We’re sticking with this series, because nobody in modern comics lays out a page like Andrews. Nobody else brings the energy and life he delivers on every page. Nobody else makes comic books quite like Kaare Andrews, and that’s the way we like it.” —Nerdist

“I can comfortably say Renato Jones: The One% has ticked most of the boxes it needs to in all of its thirty-five pages. Tech that makes its wearer superhumanly strong? Check. Gold Lamborghinis? Check. Orgies and stupendously rich, entitled douche-bags? Check. A protagonist who’s quietly dangerous and effortlessly cool at the same time? Check. This is the exact thing you’d get if you could somehow convert a flipped, sticky-from-champagne middle finger into a comic book.” —Bleeding Cool
