Like Your Marvel Comics Cheap? How Does 100 Pennies Sound?

I'd buy that for a dollar!
I’d buy that for a dollar!

As Marvel continues to ramp up to Secret Wars, they are introducing a line of cheap reprints to give you some background on the various zones of Battleworld.  Or, more specifically, like the DC Comics Essentials issues, they are making the first chapter (or so) of a story arc available for $1 in hopes that you will then buy the ~$20 trade paperback to get the rest of the story.  They can be a good introduction to readers and a cheap way to get your feet wet if you are not familiar with the properties.

The only issue that doesn’t fit this Secret Wars mold (yet?) is Powers.  But it is understandable given the release yesterday on the Playstation Network of the first episode of the new live action show.

The True Believers issues will be available in April and include:

TRUE BELIEVERS: INFINITY GAUNTLET #1 – Reprinting material from INFINITY GAUNTLET #1.

TRUE BELIEVERS: MARVEL ZOMBIES #1 – Reprinting MARVEL ZOMBIES #1.

TRUE BELIEVERS: AGE OF APOCALYPSE #1 – Reprinting material from X-MEN ALPHA.

TRUE BELIEVERS: CIVIL WAR #1 – Reprinting material from CIVIL WAR #1.

TRUE BELIEVERS: PLANET HULK #1 – Reprinting INCREDIBLE HULK #92.

RUE BELIEVERS: HOUSE OF M #1 – Reprinting HOUSE OF M #1.

TRUE BELIEVERS: OLD MAN LOGAN #1 – Reprinting WOLVERINE #66.

TRUE BELIEVERS: ARMOR WARS #1 – Reprinting material from IRON MAN #225.

TRUE BELIEVERS: MILES MORALES #1 – Reprinting ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #1.
