Marvel announce specially-priced comics ahead of "Ant-Man and The Wasp"

It's going to be a good year for Marvel Studios films.  Black Panther was released last month to great acclaim all around, and April sees the release of the long-awaited Avengers: Infinity War.  Both huge films, to be sure, but let's not forget Ant-Man and the Wasp, the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2015's hit film Ant-Man.

To celebrate the release of the film, Marvel Comics are reprinting several notable Ant-Man and Wasp stories from throughout their history.  Priced at a dollar apiece, the comics will hit comic shops this June, ahead of the film's theatrical release date.

Per Marvel:
