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.

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.
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.

TRUE BELIEVERS: WOLVERINE VS. HULK #1: Reprinting Incredible Hulk (1968) #181
Marvel keeps on re-issuing a group of comics under the “True Believers” banner and for those who have only just heard about this, these are comics that are $1 apiece. You cannot go wrong with an initiative like this at all and while this is about the fifth such time around for the “True Believers” idea, Marvel has also begun doing something called “Timely Comics” and these are essentially three issues of a comic series in one massive edition for the price of $3. Yeah its a little similar but then again its different. Here are the July “True Believers” titles and while I know some of the properties being doled out, I have no idea what this particular premise is following. Dig it.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away – a great adventure took place…This adventure also gave birth to one of the biggest and most successful financial licenses known to mankind and I am speaking of none other than the mighty juggernaut that is “Star Wars” which came to us from the creative mind of George Lucas. Since that bygone year of 1977, the original film has spawned numerous sequels and prequels, offered the world hundreds and hundreds of action figures and then there are the comic books. Marvel Comics took over the license a few years ago and has been delivering some great stuff since and with this “May The 4th Be With You” day are adding a whole batch of these titles to their “True Believers” line which we have spoken highly about in the past on the website. These titles are the exact same issue that was previously on the stands and sell for the incredible savings of $1. They are the perfect way to get a new reader into comic books and make a perfect present. Check out the covers for these issues and which ones will be coming out this month. Make sure to let your retailer know to save you these for your monthly pull list because at this price they most certainly will sell out fast. Here we go.
