This week, I review all the Marvel Now Comics released this week in a new episode of Jason Reads Comics!
If a comics company wants to get the attention of comics readers and collectors, there’s one sure way to do it … issue a number one! For example, Marvel has announced that at least two number one issues are on the way soon from them … Captain Marvel #1 and Daredevil #1. Some of my friends just wretch every time a first issue comes out. They’re mainly big collectors, and that means they have to shift their comics boxes around to reflect the new realities.

I’ve been a fan of the Defenders all the way back to the days when The Hulk hung out at Doctor Strange’s Sanctorum and ate nothing but beans, while Norrin Radd hovered and looked melancholy.

The comics industry has always recognized that they need new readers to keep the business going.
