    Nook Comic Recommendations (or Not)

      There seem to be several comic book readers on here.  With the 1.4 update coming there will be many new choices from a wider variety of publishers.  I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we could recommend some that we enjoy, and maybe warn people off of some that are not so great.

       

      I'll start by recommending:

       

       

      Atomic Robo Vol. 1 - The Fightin' Scientists of Tesladyne

      by Brian Clevinger (writer) & Scott Wegener (artist)

      Publisher: Red 5 Comics; provided for Nook by Graphicly

       

      Atomic Robo was created by Nikola Tesla in 1923 and has been having "Action Science" adventures ever since.  This introductory volume (collecting all 6 issues of the first mini-series) follows Robo around time on several different adventures that see him facing off with a Nazi scientist, giant ants, a walking pyramid, and much, much more.  Atomic Robo is action packed and humorously written.  If you're like me and say, "Remember when comics were fun?" or "Remember when you didn't need to know hundreds of issues of continuity to understand a comic?", then Atomic Robo is probably for you.

       

      Atomic Robo Vol. 1 can be read right now on both the NC and NT.  This is a comic "app" from Graphicly which allows you to utilize a guided view when reading, showing a panel or two or at a time.  You can also view the whole page and zoom in and out manually if you want.  The back-up stories are not included in the digital edition for some odd reason, but Atomic Robo is still, IMO, the most enjoyable comic being published today.
