Not being a comics person any more, I was unaware of all of this, but I have to say it has some strong appeal to me.

Just picked up my first comics in over a year... four True Believers comics!  Two copies of What If? #1 (Spidey joins the FF...one for my nephew), Tales To Astonish 35/49 (Ant Man becomes Giant Man), and FF #175 (Galactus).  High quality paper, only house ads, some cover reproductions inside, seemingly nothing missing... high class all the way.  For a buck, I'd probably buy every single silver and some bronze issues I don't already have.  They had FF#5 which I have in an inferior reprint form and I now regret not buying it (I may go back).  I hope these continue!

I appreciate having the ability to buy a copy of something I missed back in the 1970's.

Marvel just announced another round of FF True Believers for December, and they're all Lee/Kirby reprints for a buck a piece.

#2, 8, 15, 18, 20, 35, 36, 53, 62, and 65.

The selection appears to be based on the first appearances of FF villains, minus the ones like #5 which were reprinted a few months ago.

It's funny Marvel would name this line "TRUE BELIEVERS".... it's like they're admitting that the older material is superior to the current product!

-C!

My local comic shop has these on a spinner rack at the front of the shop, and they're a great impulse buy. Buck a pop for an issue you missed the first time around, if you're not sure you want an entire trade paperback, if you just want a fun book to round out your reading pile...it's a great thing. I don't know if they're able to get these into dollar stores nationwide, but I'd love to see that catch on.
