Though I didn’t see a specific Press Announcement about this next crop of the Marvel Comics True Believers line of one dollar comics, I did secure the covers and that’s really all we need for this stuff since they are reprints of classic stories and all available for a buck. I’ve mentioned several times about how much I enjoy these and how I hope they inspire you to get the younger collector in your family started. This September it’s time to “Hulk out”All with “10” editions that will be hitting your local retailer. Be aware that all of these issues are 32 pages in length with the exception of the “Hulk 2099” one which has 40.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted earlier today, I’ve only actually read a couple of the compendium editions myself as I was too late to catch up on the individual issues for an affordable price when it came to the earliest ones. I learned this was ending via the grapevine and made sure to purchase a copy at my local shop when I learned that some where still available once I finished seeing “Spider-Man: Far From Home”. This truly came out of nowhere and will cause the fanatics some heartache as they seek a first printing of the mega-popular series. Did you readers snag one or are you stuck waiting on the second printing that will be available on Monday. Chime in down below.

“I’ll say it again, I love (loved… oh, god, I’m not ready for past tense) writing this series. I really don’t want it to end. In fact, I’ve been… kind of unsettled since I wrote the script for this issue. The whole thing just feels… weird,” Kirkman wrote in the letter. “In a way, killing this series has been a lot like killing a major character. Much, much harder… but the same feeling. I don’t WANT to do it. I’d rather keep going… but the story is telling me what it wants and what it needs. This needs to happen. Whether I want it or not.”
