This morning’s Marvel teaser suggests that the new Marvel NOW! relaunch will be tied in with the Point One program which saw various series get a “.1 issue” that was new-reader-friendly. The program did quite well, we’re told. Details will be revealed at the Cup O’ Joe panel, Friday, July 13th, 3:15 PM PST.
This move solidifies the “jump-onable” nature of the Marvel NOW! program.
BTW, Beat contributor Kate Fitzsimonsused the term “jump-onable” in our PW podcast, and we’re hereby adding it to the comics lexicon. It also transforms quite well — “jump-onability.”
Getting jump-onable seems very important to the future of comics, or at least Marvel’s comics.
