If you read any of this website, you would know that we love our comics. What you may not know as well is we also love getting people into comics.
Years ago when this site first started, we use to have what we called a “New Reader Accessibility” scale which would rank how easily accessible any issue of a comic was to a new reader. The system kind of fell by the wayside as we added more people and started to uniform an actual review scale on the site. As cool and novel as it was, it was really confusing having two separate numerical values for a review!
That said the idea of highlighting comics that are approachable or even dense to new readers is still something I’m passionate about, and for some time we have tried to get original video content on the site. I figured I would attempt to combine those two interests, and that’s why we’re here today!
The New.Now! (bet you can’t guess what influenced that name!) is a series we hope to start here and on Youtube which would serve to only review a number 1 issue. To see if it is a solid read on its own and if its something worth investing in.
This week, I picked at random from all the comics I checked out this week and I present The New.Now! for Solar Man of the Atom!
