5.2 Reasons to Pay Attention to National Comics

The world of comics is like the fruits section of the grocery store. Generally, you stay in your comfort zone and grab the usual fruit snacks—apples, oranges, bananas. But every now and then, you see those pineapples sitting there... but you aren't sure about them. You don't know if you'll like it or how to even check for ripeness. Then one day someone comes over to you and says, "Try these. They're great!" They hand one over and give you a taste of something different—and you end up loving it.
