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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to say that Marvel’s been doing a great job with the “Star Wars” franchise and many of these are fantastic reads. I am a firm supporter of the “True Believers” program because I’ve watched it generate larger interest in the hobby and I love seeing that as a lifelong fan of the medium. I feel that these issues are “must haves” for the collector as who can go wrong with a comic book for $1 in this high-priced economy. This is a great week to be a comics fan because not only do we have these awesome affordable issues to enjoy but there is also a cool crop of newness coming from Marvel (which I spoke about in THIS POST) and even more awesome is that the film “Captain America: Civil War” opens up in theaters everywhere on Friday and that looks absolutely fantastic. Let me know what you think of this batch of “True Believers” titles in the comments below and I shall see you again soon.
