With the Jean Grey tale heating up at Marvel (see what I did there?), the publisher is rereleasing classic stories featuring Phoenix – and best of all, all of the issues will only be one dollar each!
Currently, Marvel will release the following titles as part of the True Believers line:
- True Believers Phoenix Featuring Cyclops & Marvel Girl Reprinting X-Men (1963) #48
- True Believers Enter The Phoenix Reprinting X-Men (1963) #101
- True Believers Phoenix Returns Reprinting Fantastic Four (1961) #286
- True Believers Phoenix Classic Reprinting Material From Classic X-Men #13 & #18
- True Believers Phoenix Bizarre Adventures, First Time In Color, Reprinting Bizarre Adventures #27
- True Believers Phoenix Vs Sabretooth Reprinting X-Men (1991) #28
- True Believers Phoenix Wedding Reprinting X-Men (1991) #30
- True Believers Phoenix What If Reprinting What If? (1977) #27
- True Believers Death Of Phoenix Reprinting New X-Men (2001) #150
- True Believers Phoenix Origins Reprinting X-Men Origins: Jean Grey #1
One thing I like about the True Believers line is it allows new-ish readers a chance to read comics at a great introductory price. The downside of the True Believers line is it asks the question, “Why can’t more Marvel comics be priced lower?”
Still, if you want to get re-colored re-printed copies of classic X-Men books, December will be a great time to spend some of your pocket change.
