Be there this July when these exciting TRUE BELIEVERS issues come to comic shops!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I will not lie when I say this one but there was a time way back in my heavier comic collecting days where “Fantastic Four” was one of my main reads. I was too young to own the earliest issues off the stands but did peruse the long boxes of the comic book shops of my region to hunt for the ones that I could still afford. The really vintage ones I only have access to via collected editions. I cannot wait to add these issues to my “reading copy” section of my collection because there are quite a few favorite issues in this mix. Also, I really encourage you older cats grabbing a set of them for the younger reader in your life. The return of The Fantastic Four is a big deal for the comic pages and perhaps when the dust settles from this proposed Disney acquisition of 20th Century Fox we will get a proper adventure film featuring these characters as opposed to the steaming pile of horse business that Josh Trank gave us a couple of years ago. The whole set will run you $12 so ask your local retailer to get them for you so you don’t miss out. What do you readers think about this latest batch of “True Believers” issues? I’d love to hear from you down in the comments section below.
