The fine folks from the House Of Ideas have a brand-new crop of “True Believers” coming and before we get started, let me remind you about the “Immortal” Variant covers that are also hitting the racks in September that are in close connection with this run of issues. I posted about that HERE so take a look at what they shared with the media. Now let’s get back to business.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep this short in the interest of time and based on the overall amount of website posts that I need to address and keep you entertained. You all know how I LOVE LOVE LOVE the “True Believers” initiative as there is nothing like being able to get a nice stack of comics for a very reasonable price. I also love the Incredible Hulk and was a diehard reader of the title back during my heavy collecting years in the 80’s and 90’s and was glued to the television even earlier when the show ran on CBS and starred Lou Ferrigno. These days I am more of a sporadic reader who peruses from the shelves first but many have said that I need to read “The Immortal Hulk” as they maintain it’s a fantastic title. Hopefully I will get around to that sometime soon. Remember that you should speak to your local retailer in advance if you’d like to secure a few sets of these issues. I say “a few” because this is the kind of thing that you always want to pay forward and inspire a younger reader in your family circle with. It will only set you back the price of a Starbucks Coffee for the most part when you include tax and a little tip so I say go for it. You’re going to want to listen to me on this or risking the Jade Giant getting wind of you not following orders and yelling HULK SMASH!!!! See you next time.
