Hot on the heels of the most recent True Believers one-dollar issues that showcased the “MARVEL KNIGHTS” we get another exciting offering with October’s “WHAT IF? TRUE BELIEVERS MONTH!” I don’t know about you readers, but it sure seems like the fine folks at the House Of Ideas are looking to make these more of a regular occurrence and I am fine with that. We didn’t find an actual press release to go along with these but do have the cover art and the reference of what original issue the titles are based on. Let’s take a look.

I’ll return with some added thoughts at the close.

You’re probably thinking that there have been a LOT of the Marvel Comics “True Believers” titles coming at you fast and furious over the last few months and you would be 100% correct in this assumption. Collector’s have just taken a deep breath after the series of issues that focused on “Wolverine” and before that it was a whole bunch with that Lethal Protector “Venom”. Oh yeah there were also a bunch of “Avengers” themed ones in tandem with the “Avengers: Infinity War” film. Now it’s time to think smaller than ever before because the latest group features “Ant-Man and The Wasp”. A new trailer was released a few weeks ago and we shared it HERE in case you missed it. Now, let’s check out these new “True Believers” titles.
