No. But I doubt you will get something out of it. (since it intends to tell the youth of the two main scientists in the original story, who later go separate ways because of their way of thinking).
Also, I doubt even someone who knows Atom in a form or another will really get something from it since it will only be the prologue of a prequel (the manga is still living)
