It’s hard to get new readers into the comic stores and when you do stage a coup and get them across the threshold there so rarely much that seems approachable. Most superhero comics have continuity longer than anyone can reasonably chase down, and many indie comics are going the same way. However, there are jumping on points to be found and this column is going to highlight them. Sometimes it might be a new number one, other times a creative team change or new direction. No matter what, we’re dedicated to finding perfect points for you and your friends to try new comics without being weighed down by too much.
Don’t think of this book as anything to do with an event comic. This one-shot is Brubaker making with some Golden Age tales as The Invaders go to work around WWII. This is Brubaker’s wheelhouse and while The Marvels Project wasn’t perfect it certainly was good. I expect this one-shot to also be good. A little faith can’t hurt.
If you pick up any of these issues let us know in the comments if they are indeed great jumping on points.
