“What can you get for a dollar? How about the Marvel Universe? Marvel is proud to present TRUE BELIEVERS – special introductory comics for the low price of only $1 each. Marvel history costs only a buck!”
I was able to get my hands on some physical copies of a few of Marvel Comics’ True Believers $1 reprints, so I thought I would share them with you. Look at that brilliant Jack Kirby artwork on the Mighty Thor title:-)
And next is a reprint of Incredible Hulk Vol. 2 #13 from April 2000, over 21 years later. This issue has pencils by Ron Garney and inks by Sal Buscema. Which one do you prefer?
And another reprint issue of Incredible Hulk Vol.1 #347, originally published in September 1988. Peter David was the writer, with pencils by Jeff Purves and inks by Mike Gustovich.
And to finish, a reprint of Black Panther #14 from March 1977, written by Ed Hannigan with pencils by Jerry Bingham and inks by Gene Day.
Which one do you like the best?
It’s hard to choose just one, but I would go for the issue of Journey into Mystery featuring Thor. I was never a fan of Jack Kirby’s art when I was younger, but now I love it. He certainly had his own unique style. I watched a documentary on Youtube about him and it was fascinating. He was so fast and prolific; a real genius artist. Some readers call his work “an acquired taste” but if you get the chance please check out some of his Fantastic Four or New Gods comics.
Okay, that’s all for today. As always, thanks for reading!
