We’re only a couple of more months away from the next exciting chapter in the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe with “Captain Marvel”. In order to get us even more amped up about the new film, the House Of Ideas will be releasing 10 brand-new comic books under their “True Believers” line. I’ve discussed these extensively at this point and cannot recommend them any more than I already have. With a $1 price tag on each of them, it’s a perfect way to not only introduce an impressionable young reader into the hobby but its also a cool way to have a few “reading copies” in a small box for you to peruse. Let’s take a look at the ten re-issues that focus on the Captain Marvel side of the fence. All issues run “32” pages with the exception of one that spans “40”.
The Press Release:

I’ve really been enjoying the means to broadcast the awesome variant covers that have been coming our way from the Marvel Comics side of the fence and hopefully you’ve managed to secure a few of this month’s “Mary Jane Watson” variants if you are collecting this sort of thing.
