PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks to be a cool batch of True Believers with some really sinister super-villains, but I do admit some surprise to find Dracula in the mix though since he would usually fall into the “monsters” category. Either way I am fine with these and will be asking my local comic book shop to set aside a few issues of each. As I’ve mentioned in the past, the “True Believers” idea is a great way to get yourself not only a reading copy but also a quick and easy way to have a gift of a stash of comic books for a young fan who is finding interest in the stuff. What I’ve said before was that these could be included with plastic sleeves and a backing board and you could teach someone proper collecting tricks. What do you readers think of this round of the “True Believers”? Will you be purchasing them? Chime in down below and let me know which are your favorites or if you are just going to snag the whole bunch. Hopefully you are getting ready for an exciting new year because 2020 is right around the corner at this point. I’ve already lined up a number of events for this and “The Chronicles” website as soon as the year begins so I will say stay tuned for any of that and I will see you soon otherwise. Thanks for reading.
