Though I didn’t see a specific Press Announcement about this next crop of the Marvel Comics True Believers line of one dollar comics, I did secure the covers and that’s really all we need for this stuff since they are reprints of classic stories and all available for a buck. I’ve mentioned several times about how much I enjoy these and how I hope they inspire you to get the younger collector in your family started. This September it’s time to “Hulk out”All with “10” editions that will be hitting your local retailer. Be aware that all of these issues are 32 pages in length with the exception of the “Hulk 2099” one which has 40.
TRUE BELIEVERS: HULK – HEAD OF BANNER #1: Reprinting Incredible Hulk (1962) #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: HULK – INTELLIGENT HULK #1: Reprinting Incredible Hulk (1968) #272
The Press Release:
Coffin Comics announced today, that the new character Lady Satanus is in development for her own story by creator/writer Brian Pulido and co-writer Mike MacLean. The announcement came in advance of her 1st appearance in Lady Death: Blasphemy Anthem #1.
“The sneak preview of Dawn McTeigue’s Lady Satanus cover for the Lady Death: Blasphemy Anthem #1 really created a buzz. And rightfully so,” say co-writer Mike MacLean. “As for the character herself, if you took a wicked, silver-tongued socialite and gave her access to the darkest magics of Hell, you’d have an idea of what Lady Satanus is like.”
Based on the overwhelming support from Coffin Comics fans of the Lady Satanus sneak preview cover, legendary comic book creator Brian Pulido was forced to take notice. Thankfully, he has a delicious story in mind, “I think the fiends will be happy,” Pulido claims.
The project release date is yet to be announced.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I didn’t manage to read “Lady Death: Blasphemy Anthem” #1 where the character was first introduced, I will not really add anything to the mix since I am not in the know. I need to see if my local retailer has a copy somewhere on the racks hidden by those who move the issues around when shopping. Wish me luck since my shop doesn’t order a whole bunch of the Coffin Comics output and instead only adds a handful or more to their order since the demographic of the place leans more Marvel and DC Comics. I’m curious to see what Lady Satanus is about for sure. What do you fellow comic book geeks think about this news? Chime in down below.

Bestselling comic book series Farmhand, created and illustrated by Rob Guillory, has been optioned for television development by AMC/AMC Studios. Guillory is set to write the pilot for the series and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. “I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.” Continue reading Image Comics “Farmhand” Series Optioned For Television By AMC→
