Marvel Comics “True Believers” Deliver “Captain Marvel” Classics In February 2019

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”.

We’ve been lauding the arrival of the Sony Animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” for a few months now and only recently shared some super cool promotional posters with the readership. You can check those out by clicking THIS LINK in the event you missed it, and not to worry because the second Official Trailer is in there as a link as well. I’ve tried to cover all the bases for your ease of enjoyment. Anyway, before I lose too much track of the point – the film opens today in theaters everywhere. Let’s review the Theatrical Poster, premise and cast before I close out with some editorial opinion.

It’s been a couple of months since the share of the second Official Trailer for the soon to open computer animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”, and if you were sleeping in that day and missed it, please click HERE because I want you to be on point about this one as best as possible. The film features the Miles Morales Spider-Man who is a super hot comic book character at the moment and it was cool to see Sony Pictures giving him the chance to shine. As you know, Sony holds the license for the Marvel Comics property and has begun to build their own Spider-Verse with this feature and most recently “Venom” (which was a live-action film). To help celebrate the opening of the film, I’ve culled together a number of the promotional posters that I found on assorted film mediums. I’ll start with the teaser poster and close us out with the Official Theatrical one. Now, check them out….and by all means enjoy.
