“Hey Bub” – Marvel’s February “True Believers” Issues Celebrate Wolverine Classics

I don’t think that I need to say how much I love the comic book stuff to you readers anymore but I’ll say that I get especially excited when there is a new batch of Marvel’s “True Believers” line hitting the shelves. Now this particular bit of news was originally circulated back in November but I sat on it until now since its closer to the time when collectors can head to their local shop and have their copies ready for the pull list. It’s also a good idea to see if any of the older runs of the True Believers line are in their back issue boxes and some reference to those can be found HERE on my older reports. Check out the full on press copy for this new set featuring the one and only Wolverine.

Marvel Comics Presents The “True Believers” Titles In April 2015

Though I realize that I’ve already gone over the first issues that will be coming out this month from Marvel Comics, I wanted to take a moment and spotlight a grouping of issues that are being labeled as “True Believers” issues.

True Believers: Infinity Gauntlet #1

Infinity Gauntlet #1: (Reprinting material from INFINITY GAUNTLET #1) – Thanos has completed the mighty Infinity Gauntlet with all of the six soul gems and will reshape the cosmos to his liking. It pit him against most of the heroes of the Marvel Universe both Terran and extra terrestrial. With Thanos appearing in the first Avengers and Guardians Of The Galaxy films this will educate the new reader on just how nasty this dude is and what the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be up against when film three comes around in a few years.

The premise of this series was due to an intergalactic virus strain of some kind causing an infection which turned our beloved heroes and hated villains into zombies. Of course this takes place outside of the conventional Marvel Universe but that is alright.
