The news about these issues began making the rounds a short time ago but I waited to let the excitement about the opening “Thor: Ragnarok” movie to settle in before I called your attention to any big comic book initiative. We recently discussed the return of Jean Grey who Marvel Comics fans know full well is the mighty Phoenix and in honor of the return the next round of “True Believers” titles will center around the massively powerful mutant. Read on.
The Press Release:

Hey there True Believers (I’m sorry but it was too hard to avoid beginning like that for this particular comic book topic) and we are here once more with another exciting edition of first-issue offerings from the Marvel Comics side of the fence. If you’ve read any of our monthly solicitations posts then you have most probably already seen our special focuses on the TRUE BELIEVERS line and for the newbie, these are the $1 comics that reprint classic stories and highlight special appearances of certain characters. If you’d like to see the previous posts of this nature just click HERE to launch the rundown of the posts that went online over the years. I don’t think that you will easily find some of the older ones all that easily considering the economical price, but some of you are true hunters and capable of anything when it comes to comic book collecting. Good luck to you if you are among this group. This next bunch of one-dollar special issues celebrates the 100th birthday of the absolutely legendary Jack “King” Kirby. Kirby was instrumental in the original success of Marvel Comics as the co-creator of some of the most famouse characters in comic book history (Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, The X-Men and Captain America among them). It’s exciting to find twelve editions to add to your collection and here is the cover art, new title and what it is reprinting. Every issue is “all-ages” suitable and spans 32 pages.

Greetings comic book fans, I’m taking a moment to direct your attention to some economically priced issues that are heading our way in July. The folks at DC Comics have decided to reprint some of their “Rebirth” titles with a new branding of “Justice League Essentials” and price them at the easily affordable buck and you’ll want to snag them all when they hit the stands. This is being done to spark up additional interest in the upcoming film I guess so take a look at what we get.

There’s a new set of Marvel Comics “True Believers” line of titles coming at us in April, and while this press news was revealed way back in January, I’ve found that our immediate forgetfulness thanks to all the fast-paced Social Networking would find us forgetting. This latest bunch follows the hits that came with the “Deadpool”, “Star Wars” and “Wolverine” editions and keep the Mutant Mania thriving by doing nine “9” super affordable “X-Men” titles. Check them out.
