DC Comics has already begun to raise the price on some of their output to almost 4 dollars. Several upcoming items featured here
now have price tags amounting to that much. To compensate for the price hike, they're trying to add backup features, but if the stars of these either weren't able to carry their own books to begin with, as in the case of the new Blue Beetle, or are multi-culti plagued ideas like the new Question that may not interest much of the audience anyway, there may not be much chance that anyone will buy Batman and Detective Comics just to read those backups anyway.
Years ago, whenever DC specialized in the backups, they never charged that much. Now, with a price as bad as $4, their attempt to compensate may not have much effect. Especially when the concepts involved in the new backups aren't that well crafted to begin with.
