Marvel Comics Announce “X-Men” True Believers Titles For October 2019

Hello again my fellow comic book lovers and collectors alike, I am back to share with you all the news about the upcoming bunch of one dollar comics that comprise Marvel’s “True Believers” line of titles. Over the last few years there have been some awesome ones such as “Wolverine”, “Avengers”, “Venom”, “Fantastic Four”, “Spider-Man” and even unexpected ones like “Carnage” and “Greatest Creators” and I have to say that I love them all. My main interest in them is based on their being able to help the hobby grow into new readership demographics as an older relative or parent will not hesitate to give something like this a shot when a handful of books will only run them $5 or $10 at the register. This upcoming group is an “X-Men” one and they’ve had their fair share already but with Marvel Studios beginning the plan for an MCU series of films with the characters I can’t blame them for pushing more titles into our eager little hands. There is also a brand-new X-Men series coming this October to watch out for so let’s get down to what is coming.
