Back in April 2015, I lined out a new initiative that Marvel Comics had put out for the masses that went under the banner “True Believers”. These titles focused on previously published comics that bore some relation to the at the time upcoming “Secret Wars” mega-event that we have been enjoying all summer. The great thing about this was that these comics were all $1 apiece and since there were almost a dozen of them it made for a perfect gift for any young reader in your household. Heck it was even good for yourself if you felt like having a newer “reading copy” at your disposal. This second round proves to be equally if not more exciting and I’ll let the press from Marvel themselves do the talking but I will offer up some insight to each one of the titles if possible and at the close. Let’s get started.
The Women of Marvel are taking over in September! That’s right, Marvel’s blockbuster female-led titles are returning to comic shops this month for ten new TRUE BELIEVERS titles. Specially priced at $1, these can’t miss introductory issues provide the perfect window into some of Marvel’s critically acclaimed female-led titles! From the high stakes espionage action of Black Widow to the out of this world adventure of Princess Leia. From the larger than life Ms. Marvel to the irresistible charm of Spider-Gwen – these fan-favorite premiere issues offer perfect entry points into the Marvel Universe. Hang on tight and see what you’ve been missing with these exciting TRUE BELIEVERS titles coming to comic shops in September!
True Believers: Black Widow #1: I only leafed through this original first issue at the comic shop but its a solid one and with the popularity of Black Widow thanks to the Avengers and Captain America films then this is one you will want to relive as a “True Believer” edition.

True Believers: Captain Marvel #1: Captain Marvel is coming to the big screen in the next couple of years and that is going to make getting in on the ground floor with this character all the more important for those fans of the films and the comic book page.
