Comics Alliance Presents ‘Here’s The Thing,’ Episode 2: Comics New Readers Should Get Next [Video]
If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.
This week, he’s helping out new fans by taking two comics often listed as being “great for new readers,” Batman: Year One and Hawkeye, and making connections to tell you where to go next! Sit tight for plenty of great comics recommendations!
