Earlier this week I posted a video about my copy of Spider-Girl’s origin story, which was part of my modest True Believers haul this week. In this episode I talk about the other two comics: AVENGERS FOREVER and THE INCREDIBLE HULK: THE WEDDING OF RICK JONES.
Check out part one here.
Right now, I’m a very happy comic book reader because I finally got my hands on a copy of GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1. I have wanted to read this historic comic from 1975 for years because I am a big fan of Chris Claremont’s run of the X-Men.
And the team that was introduced in this Giant Size X-Men is my favorite team of the X-Men. Granted, this is the genesis of that team: Kitty Pryde and Rogue would join the ranks of the X-Men later on. However, I have always wanted to know how Len Wein and Dave Cockrum practically rebooted the X-Men franchise with this comic. And thanks to a True Believers reprint of this story, I was able to finally read it.
I recently picked up this True Believers comic from 2017. That year Marvel celebrated a 100 years of Jack Kirby (1917-1994). Kirby was one of the co-creators of the Marvel Universe.
Together with Stan Lee he created a lot of characters. He was also a very prolific artist. And yeah, I made a mistake in the video saying Kirby died in 2015, because that should’ve been 1994.
