DC slowly moving back to $3.99

There are four series they're producing in their DCnU relaunch that signal they're not as serious as they claim to be about holding back at just $2.99. Rather unsurprisingly, it's the books written by their leading overrated writers that carry the 4 dollar price tag (Action Comics by Grant Morrison, Justice League by Geoff Johns, for example).

As for Marvel, they're beginning to follow in DC's footsteps with books that are reduced to 20 pages, and some of these still cost $3.99 too.

But at either price, that's hardly going to encourage new readers to take a look at them any more than their abuse of continuity and characters.

At the last comic-con I attended, I told one of the dealers I wouldn't think twice about paying $4 or more for certain comics from the Silver Age, but there's no way I'm going to pay that much for the crap both companies are churning out now.

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.
