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.
TRUE BELIEVERS: ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS – CYCLONE #1: Reprinting All-New, All-Different Avengers #4
TRUE BELIEVERS: UNCANNY AVENGERS – THE BAGALIA JOB #1: Reprinting Uncanny Avengers #5
TRUE BELIEVERS: MIGHTY THOR – THE STRONGEST VIKING THERE IS #1: Reprinting Mighty Thor #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN – THE BURNING MAN #1: Reprinting Extraordinary X-Men #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: INVINCIBLE IRON MAN – THE WAR MACHINES #1: Reprinting Invincible Iron Man #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY – GALAXY’S MOST WANTED #1: Reprinting Guardians of the Galaxy #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: DOCTOR STRANGE – THE LAST DAYS OF MAGIC #1: Reprinting Doctor Strange #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN – THE DARK KINGDOM #1: Reprinting Amazing Spider-Man #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: DAREDEVIL – PRACTICE TO DECEIVE #1: Reprinting Daredevil #6
TRUE BELIEVERS: DEADPOOL – DEADPOOL VS. SABRETOOTH #1: Reprinting Deadpool #8
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow. I don’t think that I ever read a single one of these issues during the time that they were originally released so these affordable titles are going to be requirements for my pull list this month. I still love them for sure because what is better than being able to buy ten different comics for a sum of $10? I’ve said it before and I will say it again, these are perfect gifts for the younger reader in your world who you might wish to inspire to read the comic stuff or to teach how to collect properly like you do. Just think of the quality time spent with your younger family member as you teach them how to properly bag and board a shiny new comic book and place it in a box for posterity. I think I’m going to enjoy reading these tomes and then probably investigate a collected edition. I hope that one of the upcoming True Believers lines focuses on Spider-Man classics alone or maybe even a lengthier issue of titles that bring us way back to the original classics like the first issues of the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil, Avengers……and I am talking about that older stuff so they know how it all began. What do you readers think of these titles? Have you read any of them before they were True Believers issues? Let me know in the comments section below and be sure to make your comic shop put them aside for you because at $1 apiece they are going to fly off the shelves.
