Less pages will be more of a mistake

KC Carlson at Westfield Comics writes about DC's dropping at least 2 pages along with the cover price for several comics - and Marvel's possibly doing the same - and says it's could only be a grave error:
While I think that the $2.99 cover price is obviously a much more attractive price point for a 32-page comic book than $3.99, it’s the dropping of the two story pages that is really the bigger issue — when you consider the historical context. I think that decision is actually going to be a colossal mistake. Plus, it’s a sure sign that folks at DC don’t remember their history.
More of which can be read about in the rest of the article. For now, I can say that, in today's very editorially mandated and badly scripted atmosphere, the loss of pages won't matter much. I'm not buying the new books of today's DC and Marvel; the people in charge today have only been interested in destroying my childhood, so the loss of pages won't make any difference, as the writing will still be very, very bad. And the people in charge can only blame themselves for their failure to draw in new crowds while losing the old ones simultaneously.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
