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!

Show Notes:

  • CA contributor Benito Cereno's "For The Uninitiated" posts are a must-read for new fans and old fans alike.
