Get to Know the Marvel Universe with “True Believers”

Posted on January 23, 2015 at 3:02 pm by Tyler Waterman

Right out of the gate, let me say first: this is pretty cool. Marvel has revealed their “True Believers” program, which features reprints of the first issues to nearly a dozen all-time-great Marvel stories, each priced at only a dollar a piece. What makes this program a particularly classy move is that these titles are exclusive to comic shops, which means these aren’t only geared towards bringing in new readers, they’re also designed to help drive new business to local comic shops as well.

One dollar is a price of admission that’s pretty easy to swallow, especially when most of these are some of the biggest and best stories around. If these are all unfamiliar to you, at least make sure you make the drive to grab Civil War, Old Man Logan, House of M, The Infinity Gauntlet and Ultimate Spider-Man, as all of them are some of the best of the best. Here’s the complete list, from the official announcement from Marvel:

The books in the True Believers program aren’t just for introducing you to the past, either; they’re designed to get everyone ready for the near future. They’ll each serve as a great introduction to the upcoming Secret Wars event, as all of the worlds or eras depicted in these reprints promise to play a role in the many realms that are about to become one.

This was also included in the announcement, and though it doesn’t appear to carry the “True Believers” banner, it’s also $1

Getting introduced to some of Marvel’s finest, while also getting brought up to speed for the biggest Marvel event yet? I’d say that’s worth a few dollars! Keep your pocket change handy, and be ready to turn it into massive comics knowledge when these titles hit comic shops this April.
