DC and Marvel lowering prices - but also story page counts
The move to the lower price will mean a decrease in story pages — from 22 pages to 20 in a standard 32-page comic — as well as the loss of co-features in eight titles, including Action Comics, Adventure Comics and Detective Comics.Oh, so what good is it then? All that means is there'll be less story room, and considering how bad they've become, it won't make much difference to anyone already disillusioned with their shattered universe. And 2 of those 3 titles above have lost their main stars - Superman and Batman - one more reason why they've lost audience.
(Nearly a decade ago, Marvel began dropping at least one story page in several books too, all for the sake of a kind of summary page that wasn't really needed.)
As for Marvel, they're only lowering prices on new books in January, and it doesn't sound like they're going to lower the prices on their flagship titles. But even if they do, they'll probably follow suit with DC, which won't make much difference since even their storytelling has been limp for years now.
